Scroll to content

Automata is building a world-class company and disrupting the automation industry with Eva, the first low cost high functioning Industrial Automation Robot. 

We’re changing the perception that robotic technology is expensive and complex, by empowering people to automate physical aspects of ‘work’.

In order to deliver award-winning automation through our extremely intuitive software ‘Choreograph’, we need a world-class front end team building beautiful functional software. 

You’ll be working on ‘Choreograph’, Eva’s powerful web-based visual editor based on a modern tech stack. This includes interacting with our robot and cloud APIs, improving our 3D programming environment and working with all sorts of robotics use cases.

We would like to find driven people who are excited by technical challenges and love working as part of a team. No robotics experience needed but curiosity and passion appreciated!

What will you be doing?

  • Contributing ideas and working on exciting new features in our roadmap
  • Producing Choreograph updates from design, implementation, testing to release
  • Handling support requests from customers, helping them to develop their robotic use cases 
  • You will also have the opportunity to learn about other technical areas such as Back-End, DevOps, System Development, Firmware and Manufacturing, depending on your interests and strengths

What will you bring to the role? 

  • 3+ years experience of frontend web development: have worked with React and modern web apps (bonus: Three.js, 3D rendering, SVG or webpack experience)
  • Good communication skills: comfortable interacting with customers and working closely with our sales and support teams
  • Knowledge of UI design and user experience, working with our designers and users to provide a constantly great experience
  • Happy interacting with APIs with a solid understanding of API usage and design, ideally with some backend development experience (bonus: Go, SQL, Linux or C++ experience)

What gets us excited?  

We’re passionate about the future of Technology and Robotics and our growing success is built upon like-minded individuals who share our passion. 

The software chapter is an eclectic mix of people but we’re unified by our passion to make a robot that’s so easy to program your Nanna could do it. We love meme montages, Dungeons, Dragons and type constraints.

If you’re tired of building the same old e-commerce website and want to be having fun with a real robot in a fast-paced environment, we want to hear from you. 

Returning to work

As of the 1st June 2021 Automata is adopting a hybrid approach to working. Each member of the team works at least 2 days per week from the office and the rest of the week from home (or a location of their preference).

Thanks!
