Building a Talent Marketplace for Robotics
#People • Power • Robots
Behind every drone, every medical robot, every autonomous vehicle or robotic arm, there is a person. A person with skills, thoughts, ideas, dreams of the future and values, who seeks to make life better, by creating machines that can help other people live healthier, smarter, more efficient and better lives. Robots will play an increasingly valuable role in society, but they will be developed and improved by people.
Robots.Jobs is partnering with leading robotics organizations and companies to create a central talent marketplace because we believe that companies and products will be built faster by connecting great people to top teams, to build better tools.
We are inspired by the products that our industry is building, and we share their vision that future generations will live improved lives through the use of robotics and related technologies.
