All over the world - in hospitals, airports, shops and more - social robots are being deployed to help people live better lives, support employees, delight customers, and add value to businesses. We're entering an era where we can finally start interacting with machines the same way we do with each other. At Furhat Robotics we have built a social robot that is capable of doing things no other robot can do. That’s where you come in.

We hope that you, as our first Robot Interaction Writer, will give our robot life in applications spanning everything from healthcare and education to airports and retail. This is a highly imaginative and strategic role where you will essentially be designing the personality of the robots.

By joining Furhat you will become part of ambitious team of scientists, entrepreneurs and engineers building the most advanced social robotics platform on the market. Furthermore, you will be an early employee at one of the most promising and high impact startups, backed by some of Europe’s most prominent investors.

As a Robot Interaction Writer, you will:

  • Write scripts and content for social robot interactions
    • Speech will be the primary focus, but you'll also incorporate expressions, gaze/eye-contact? and other types of non-verbal behavior in order to create compelling single- or multi-party human-robot interactions.
  • Contribute to the design-process for Furhat applications and help teach this new form of art to the world.
  • Contribute to building a common, reusable base of dialog building blocks.
  • Advise business developers in content creation for existing and potential customers.

Skills & Requirements

Knowing that there aren't many Robot Interaction Writers by title in the world (yet), we are looking for these qualities;

  • Highly skillful writer and communicator with experience of creating content for varied audiences
    • Maybe you have written scripts for theaters, speeches or snappy copy for hyped milk-alternatives. Maybe you've designed dialog for RPG-games, directed movies, written short stories or perhaps condensed a bank FAQ to a chat-bot format? Maybe you're a hobby stand-up comedian, a poet or run your own podcast?
    • you have a portfolio of content that includes engaging and creative work, or that you can in other ways convey your skills in your application.
  • Multi-tasker. You'll be part of many projects, long and short, as well as being part of the occasional speaking engagements that our dear robot tends to get invited to, so it's important that you are flexible.
  • Technically savvy. You don't need to be a programmer, but you might have to do some small changes to code occasionally .
  • Bachelor’s degree in literature, communications, or a relevant field

On the bonus side, you can get extra points if you also:

  • Have experience with user-experience design.
  • Speak multiple languages
  • Have a linguistics background
  • Have experience programming or working with software products

Note: We will currently only be able to accept candidates that are eligible to work in Sweden without a visa sponsorship. This means you must have EU citizenship or a Swedish work permit. Exceptions can be made for exceptional candidates.
