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 now being deployed in order to help people lead better lives, support employees, delight customers and add value to businesses. People are entering a new era where talking to machines and interacting with them in our most natural human way is becoming a normal part of everyday life. 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 Talent Acquisition Specialist/Technical Recruiter to join our Operations team. You will work closely with our teams to get to know their organization, proactively understand their competence needs, and help them to build stellar teams. You make sure we hire amazing people that align with our values. As part of the Operations team, you will play a leading role in designing how recruitment and onboarding are done, developing our employer brand and running our recruiting processes globally as we grow as an organization.
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. 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.
