Robot job recruiting is led a surge in August hiring. Though the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported this morning that the National Unemployment rate fell by 1.8% August to 8.4%, robot engineers have near zero unemployment!
Robotics recruiting is skyrocketing despite COVID 19. This is because peripheral and related areas to robotics such as artificial intelligence, machine vision, virtual reality, augmented reality and internet of things (IoT) are all progressing at rapid rates.
Top Robotics Engineering Jobs
Robot engineer jobs are in high demand. As a result, the demand for qualified professionals for robotics engineer jobs is on the rise.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for robot engineer jobs is expected to grow 9% between 2016-2026.
This is leading to both: a) a shortage of qualified robot engineers and b) a dramatic increase in salaries offered to robotics engineers. Four robot engineering jobs stand out today.
Robotics Software Engineer
Robotics software engineers work to develop software that can help control and automate robots. They also work on embedded systems and testing, maintaining and debugging current software systems for efficiency and effectiveness. They are also responsible for ensuring that the robots are safe and productive to use and cost effective to purchase and maintain.
Mechanical Robotics Engineer
Mechanical engineers are very popular in robotics engineer jobs. These engineers are responsible for designing robots and for their automation like placing sensors.
Mechanical engineers also play an important role in the testing and maintenance of robots until they are ready for implementation.
Automation engineers are responsible for delivering automated solutions. They identify the opportunities for automation, design and test possible solutions, and collaborate with various stakeholders to see how automation can help improve productivity and workflows.
Computer Vision Engineer
A computer vision engineer has to be skilled in image processing and machine learning. These engineers are responsible for developing the algorithms that control robot operations. They are also responsible for developing the technology required for helping the robots perform stably.
