Are you excited to animate your mechanical designs? Do you dream of ways to achieve maximum capability with the simplest mechanical designs?
We are seeking an innovative Senior/Staff Mechanical Engineer to support the mechanical design of our novel cobot. This role is an exciting opportunity to join in the development as we start to scale to initial builds and production cobots. The opportunity will be equal parts high level and creative while still very technical and in the details of mechanical design. You will be collaborating side by side in system architecture, electrical engineering, industrial design, and supply chain. You will help to identify and source suppliers and components and partner with machine shops and build technicians to realize your design.
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.
