Automata’s mission is to democratise robotics. We create the tools that empower people to automate physical work that they should no longer have to do.
We design and build the robots that will redefine what ‘work’ means over the coming years. We go all the way - and do everything - hardware, mechanical, electronics, firmware, front-end, back-end, control system. This is as cross-functional and integrated as it gets.
Our super accessible and friendly robot, Eva, is now ready to be unveiled to the world and we’re looking for a talented Mid-Weight Graphic Designer to join our team.
