For social robots, the time is now: they are no longer 'science fiction'. All over the world - in universities and research labs as well as in schools, hospitals, airports, shops, offices, hotels, and more - social robots are being explored and deployed today to help people lead better lives, support employees, delight customers, and add value to businesses as well as new insights to researchers. Humans are entering a new era where talking to machines, and interacting with them in our most natural ways (as if they were a person) is becoming 'normal'. But it's still early days in this revolution. The rules are still being written, and the road ahead is wide open. Furhat Robotics has established itself as a global leader in telling the story of social robotics, and this is where you come in.
We have recently won a major project in the Middle East with an incredibly exciting and ambitious scope and a huge impact on the industry, and humanity at large. We call it the 'Apollo Mission' of Social Robotics! We are now looking for an experienced Senior Project Manager to lead this initial 1-year project, and be responsible for a successful delivery and client relationship to ensure a continued project for the coming years.
You will work alongside our experienced management team and colleagues from our offices in Stockholm and Boulder, Colorado, and build a strong network of stakeholders, and allies, both within the client organisation, and the global community.
By joining Furhat, you will be in the driving seat of bringing new and exciting technology to the market, and take social robotics further than any other project has ever done before. By leading this project, you will also be part of one of the most exciting projects that humanity is undertaking right now - pushing the boundaries and progress of every aspect of human life, and providing the most ambitious project to date to bring social robots to everyone's daily life.
