Robot Application Developer at Furhat Robotics
Stockholm, SE

For social robots, the time is now: They are no longer 'science fiction'. All over the world - in homes, schools, hospitals, airports, shops, offices, banks, hotels, and more - social robots are being deployed today to help people lead better lives, support employees, delight customers, and add value to businesses. Humans are entering a new era where talking to machines, and interacting with them in our most natural ways (as if they were a person) is becoming 'normal'. But it's still early days in this revolution. The rules are still being written, and the road ahead is wide open. At Furhat Robotics, we’ve built an unparalleled integrated software and hardware platform that allows us to do things with our robot that no other robot can do. And that’s where you come in.

 

We are looking for a robot application developer to join our Interactions team. You will build, and contribute to the process of building, applications on top of our social robotics platform for various internal and external use-cases. As part of the Interactions team, you will help architect solutions that meet customer requirements and provide valuable feedback to the platform engineers. You will develop creative interactions that push the envelope of state of the art Human-Robot Interaction and show the world what can be achieved with our powerful social robotics platform.

 

By joining Furhat, you will accompany us on a journey to create world-leading conversational robots that interact with us the way we interact with each other, and be in the driver’s seat of developing a new genre of applications between human and machines. You will be part of a very ambitious team of scientists, entrepreneurs and engineers building the most advanced social robotics platform on the market. Furthermore, you will be an early employee at one of the most promising and high impact startups, backed by some of Europe’s most prominent investors.
