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 a devloper to join our team.

The first phase of the project is 9 months, and it ends on March 31, 2023. If all goes well, there will be ample opportunity to continue working with Furhat, either converting to a permanent position or by signing a new limited-time contract.
