Job requirements

At BotsAndUs, hardware is a critical part of our product offering. We design and build our robots in house and have an exciting opportunity to hire a workshop technician.

In this role, you’ll be working within the hardware team to ensure the smooth operation of our spaces, equipment and robots. Your time will be split between our main location in Paddington (West London) and our warehouse in (Oxfordshire) so it's essential you possess a full UK driving licence.

Day to day your responsibilities will include servicing tools and machinery, implementing schedules and ordering parts to ensure the equipment is in excellent working order.

You will be responsible for maintaining and holding others accountable for the organisation, status and cleanliness of the spaces.

When we need to build robots you will have to support the hardware team with the build and assembly process and contribute your ideas to improve the designs. There will be many stages of the engineering process where you will be able to get involved and help us create our product.

A key requirement will be maintaining and organising inventory of consumables. (fasteners, drill bits, stock, electronics, material etc.) When we receive orders of parts and components you will be responsible for intake and quality control, checking delivered parts against the requirements.

You will be asked to help prepare testing spaces for the wider teams, maintain our demo and showrooms and support us setting up our stands at exhibitions where we demonstrate our technology.
