People. Power. Robots
There is a person behind every drone, medical robot, autonomous vehicle or robotic arm. A person with skills, thoughts, ideas, dreams of the future and values, seeks to make life better by creating machines that can help other people live healthier, more innovative, more efficient, and better lives. Robots play an increasingly valuable role in society; they will be developed and improved by people.
Robots.Jobs is partnering with leading robotics organizations and companies to create a central talent marketplace. We believe that companies and products will be built faster by connecting great people to top teams to develop better tools.
Our industry's products inspire us, and we share their vision that future generations will live improved lives using robotics and related technologies.
We're based in Boston...
...but our talent is global.
Meet the team.
