Ocean Career: Blue Robotics Quality Engineer

At Blue Robotics, we enable the field of marine robotics with affordable components and systems. What does this really mean? We design cool tech for use underwater that enables tons of people and organizations to pursue their audacious dreams of exploring and learning about our oceans and waterways.

As we grow and our users tackle more and more challenging subsea missions, the demands on our products grow. We’ve grown to be very good at manufacturing with a great team of engineers and technicians. The next step is to grow our team to include a Quality Engineer who is driven to make things even better, solving tough problems and enjoying the journey.

We’re headquartered in Torrance, California, where we have a smart and ambitious team running our supply chain, manufacturing, and inventory management while collaborating with our remote design and sales teams to bring new products to life. We have an appetite for constant improvement and work together to build great products and a great company.

For this role, we’re looking for someone who will care deeply about quality across our design, manufacturing, and operations elements, keep our customer’s needs in mind, and be unafraid to speak up when there’s room for improvement. We’re searching for a person who is keen to start from near-scratch and build a great system, who loves to stay organized and documented along the way, and is willing to step into a running operation and get up to speed quickly. While you’ll spend most of your time near the production, there will also be chances to use our products in the real world to fully understand what’s important for our customers’ success.

Will it all be whipped cream and roses? Probably not. But as a team we’ll chip away at this awesome, fun, and sometimes infuriating dream that we’ve decided deserves to become a reality.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Improve and develop new quality control processes and procedures for product manufacturing, assembly, and testing.
  • Collaborate with design engineering, manufacturing engineering, operations, and production teams to ensure that quality requirements are met from product conception to delivery.

  • Conduct supplier quality assessments and work closely with vendors to ensure the quality of incoming materials and components.
  • Provide training and guidance to the production team on quality standards, procedures, and best practices.
  • Participate in design reviews and risk assessments to ensure that product designs meet quality and reliability requirements.
  • Support customer inquiries and feedback related to product quality and reliability.


  • Bachelor's degree in engineering or a related field. Proven experience in quality engineering or a similar role, preferably in the manufacturing or robotics industry.
  • Familiarity and experience with metrology tools and gauges.
  • Strong knowledge of quality management principles, tools, and methodologies.
  • Excellent problem-solving skills, with the ability to identify and resolve complex quality issues.
  • Fantastic communication skills and the ability to interact with cross-functional teams and hold people accountable for their work.
  • Detail-oriented and self-motivated, with a passion for delivering high-quality products and improving processes.
