Join us at a very exciting time of growth as we’re significantly ramping up all areas of the business to lead the way in logistics data globally, backed by some of Europe’s best VCs and driven by passion, curiosity and teamwork.

We value humility and we're as interested in your character as we are in your talent. Please apply, even if you feel you only meet part of our listed criteria. Diversity drives innovation and we offer an international and friendly work environment with an energetic company culture.

Job requirements

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will play a key role in designing and building the platforms that support our robots. Our platform covers everything from the embedded code that manages the robot’s sensors, all the way up to the cloud robotics platform that allows our customers to manage their deployments.

You’ll have the opportunity to work in a variety of areas, such as:

  • Distributed systems design for communicating with robots in the field safely and securely
  • Building user-facing applications and APIs to enable customer-driven robot management
  • Designing high-level data-gathering software on top of the base robotics platform
  • Integrations with customers’ existing systems to support their operations

As a senior member of the software engineering team, you will share responsibility for both implementation and system design of new projects, as well as updates, improvements, and maintenance of existing systems. You will have the opportunity to contribute to cross-team planning efforts, and to shape the design of our platforms now and in the future.

You will need:

  • 6+ years of experience shipping software products
  • Good knowledge of the Linux platform generally
  • Experience with one or more high-end languages; we primarily use Go and C++ for development, but are open to applications from people with different backgrounds.
  • Experience with agile workflows, automated testing, and continuous deployment
  • Excellent communication, collaboration, and teamworking skills

It would also be helpful to have:

  • Previous experience with developing software for hardware devices or robots
  • Working knowledge of a variety of other programming languages which we use from time-to-time, such as Python, Java, or Typescript
  • Experience in architecting and designing large-scale, end-to-end systems
  • Experience designing cloud infrastructure for hosting reliable distributed systems
  • We are especially interested in candidates who are flexible in their approach, and willing to learn and use suitable technologies and frameworks as appropriate for specific tasks.

Example projects

  • You’ll work on a variety of different projects as we continue to build our platform. To give you an idea of what kind of work you’ll be doing, some recent projects our team has worked on include:
  • Developing a Docker-based architecture for running software on our robots in isolated containers, allowing safe a reliable remote deployment of software updates
  • Building a data processing pipeline which uses C++ to capture frames from a 3D LiDAR scanner and reconstruct a 3D environment in real-time.
  • Implementing a WebRTC-based pipeline for accessing a robot’s video and audio feeds remotely, and allowing users to drive robots using an in-browser web app


As a company, we’re still in the start-up phase of our life – we’re a small VC-funded team, but we have a great platform in an advanced stage of development. You’ll play a significant role in shaping the future of our products, culture, and engineering team.

We are a diverse, remote-friendly team (though we have an amazing office and workshop space in London). We have flexible working hours – as a hardware startup we have occasional important deadlines and site visits, but work-life balance is important to us, and we strive to keep disruption to a minimum.

You’ll receive a market-rate salary, stock options, and whatever equipment you need, as well as an annual training and conference budget. We use loads of open-source software, and we’d love for you to contribute to projects while you are here – and you’re welcome to take some time for personal projects too.
