At Synapticon we’re reshaping the world of motion control for robotics and machinery at the point of motion.

The company introduces an entirely new approach to motion axes by integrating formerly discrete components, such as motors, drives, sensors and gearboxes into seamless units and digitalizing performance and quality factors that are so far dependent on costly mechanical manufacturing. Innovation leaders around the world choose to work with Synapticon to path their way into the future of intelligent, motion control-related systems.  Be part of it, join Synapticon!


We design and build the servo drivers used to give robots their ability to move. We’ve built a testing infrastructure that automates the process of running the tests on a farm of robots, and we’re looking to expand the farm and verification tests. We need someone to help make sure these robots will always perform perfectly in every respect.

We need a clever, creative person to figure out how to test all the features we support. You will need experience with Python, as our testing framework is built with it. Experience with electronics and hardware is a big advantage, because you will be expected to help build mechanical rigs to test particularly complex features. You will be working with robots and robot axes on a daily basis, but your main responsibility will be in the test logic.


  • Education in mechatronics, electronics, or computer science
  • Affinity for solving problems creatively by getting your hands dirty and making it work
  • A deep sense of personal responsibility for your work
  • A love for learning new technologies, verification strategies, and robotics concepts
  • Experience with Python
  • Experience with electronics and hardware


  • Full-time (40 hours/week)

  • Flexible working hours and working location when life gets in the way

  • Small international team in start-up mode, with lots of opportunities for career advancement

  • Highly competent colleagues who are experts in their field and who are happy to help you learn and grow

  • Birthday vouchers

  • Company support for gym memberships through Qualitrain

  • Beautiful countryside around the office at our location in Schönaich, Germany

  • Regular team building events like skiing, boot camps, sports, Christmas parties, and BBQ every Friday .

  • Spouses and kids are welcome to join for BBQ on Friday.

  • A sandbox out back “for the kids”, but we recognize that age is just a number

  • A field out back where we like to kick the ball around. Some of us are professional-level, but we prefer to pursue our engineering passions.

  • Modern office facilities with an engineering lounge with football table and bean bag chairs

  • Shared apartment (WG) upon availability

  • Visa sponsorship, if required

Hi! We’re about 60 experts actively looking to expand our talent. 

Our engineering team is from all walks of life, countries, and cultures. Our diversity drives our creativity, and we look forward to having your unique outlook shape our product.

Working hours and location are flexible at Synapticon, because working families need that. Although you may need to be beside your robot for much of the day, we understand that sometimes getting away from the problem to think is the better approach.

Our unique SoC microprocessor has a massive amount of processing power, available to build unique, real world physics-defying algorithms right into the robot joint. We strive to use the best technology for the problems we are working to solve.
