Collaborative Robotics is a team of innovators and builders redefining the future of human-robot interaction. We are working to realize a world where robots are a trusted extension of your surroundings. They work, adapt, and react around you. Not the other way around.

About the role:

Do you dream of a world of seamless interactions between robots and humans? Do you have a strong desire to convey trustworthiness in your designs?

Ideal candidates have worked at startups before and have a rich portfolio of industrial design experience, while also being able to support website design, customer material, simulation-driven videos and a range of mediums.
