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 - to get there; hardware, mechanical, electronics, firmware, front-end, back-end, control system. This is as cross-functional and integrated as it gets.
As our UX/UI Designer, you will have scope and freedom to redesign our revolutionary robotics software Choreograph.
Choreograph is the missing link in robotics programming - combining complex software capabilities with clean simplicity.
You’ll be instrumental across the entire design process of how users interact, program and work with our robots. You will turn user requirements into conceptual product designs for beautiful, functional desktop and mobile web applications.
What will you be doing?
- Working closely with early adopters of our robots to develop a strong understanding of both the needs and requirements of robot users and the underlying abilities of the robot
- Conduct user research, usability studies, prototyping interaction design and interface design
- Refine iterations of the software platform using low-level wireframes to define the logic and process of programming the robot
- Design prototypes of the software platform in a suitable, industry recognised, design software
- Present design concepts, prototypes and work summaries for various stakeholders including early adopters, users, staff and management of Automata
- Collaborate continuously with Graphic Design, Engineering and Front-End Developers to ensure our product is delivering what our users need from Choreograph, Eva and our website
- Conduct A/B tests for design concepts and produce clear and concise summaries of their outcomes to facilitate good design decision making. These tests should validate its performance and usability
- Develop training and promotional materials such as videos for early adopters and users of the robot and software platform
What do we want to see from you?
