Join us solving real world problems


At Emesent, we’re creating autonomous systems that advance human capabilities to explore further and understand more. We push the boundaries in technology to bring innovative solutions in challenging environments.

We are an equal opportunity and diversity employer, with over 80% of our staff speaking a second language or born outside of Australia.

If you have a growth mindset and want to be part of a new wave of technology that revolutionizes how we do things, Emesent is the place for you.



We partner with robotics suppliers such as DJI and Boston Dynamics to deploy our leading-edge technology on drones and ground robots to improve safety, efficiency, and analytics from scanning environments in mining, infrastructure, and many other industries.

Our leading-edge technology

Our Engineers couple the newest robots and sensors with our localisation, perception, and planning algorithms to enable complete autonomous operation, and use machine learning and gaming engines to extract and display valuable insights.


Our people have responsibility for their area of expertise and are encouraged to take ownership of their work.  We provide a balance of autonomy and support, with collaboration being fundamental to how we work.

join an inclusive community

We host a packed program of social activities across the year.  We think the best work happens when we’re having fun.  We invite our people to join and create groups and activities like our Coffee Club and Emesent Radio because we’re more than just employees, we are a community.

we believe in a diverse environment

As a high-growth organisation operating in a competitive environment, diversity plays a critical role in achieving our external ambitions and the internal culture we have built.


Out of the projects I have worked on at Emesent, the one that stands out the most is the DARPA SubT Challenge. The opportunity to work with and compete against world leaders in robotics at this early stage of my career was something I never thought would happen! Competing in such an event requires your team to work well together under intense pressure to overcome unexpected challenges. I’m glad that I was able to be part of such a diverse, passionate, and highly capable team at Emesent – part of Team CSIRO Data61.

Software Engineer

As a mother of two, working for an organization that values work-life balance is critical for me. I strongly believe that with passion and drive, you can succeed in your career. Emesent has enabled me to achieve this, and this is the same lens I use in our organization when hiring candidates. I have had the opportunity to build a diverse workforce by applying practices that reduce bias in our recruitment process and provide an inclusive experience.

Talent Acquisition Manager

As a recent dad to my first child, one of the most important things for me is flexibility. Being able to adapt my work-life balance to meet company demands, as well as the requirements of family, is critical. Emesent has supported me through it all, allowing me to work from home to spend some quality time with my little one while achieving results at work.

Data Platform Lead

I knew I was in the right place from the moment I got my first interview call up. The onboarding process was seamless from day 1, and the business made sure that I was all set up to work from home as well. I found this extremely motivating. The warm and energetic welcome in the office, amazing inductions, cool technology, and a one-on-one with the CEO made me feel that I made the right decision.
