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 are looking for a new marketing star to lead our marketing team and strategy, and further establish Furhat Robotics as the global leader in social robotics. Your mission will be to work with our small but established and experienced marketing team on driving all our marketing efforts, and make sure it is executed with world-class quality, on time, and on budget.

In this role, we expect you to combine high-level strategic thinking with working very hands-on together with the rest of the team, coordinating the day to day operations. We are proud to execute on most of our marketing work inhouse, and your motivation and willingness to engage in a wide range of tasks - as well as a strong passion for our company vision - will be a key factor in joining our team. We believe that you are fairly early in your career and are looking for a truly exciting journey full of growth opportunities alongside an amazing team! Ideally, you have managed a team before, maybe even at a startup, and also have experience of recruiting new talents to a company.

By joining Furhat, you will be in the driving seat of telling one of the most exciting stories of technologies in the world today. Building robots has been the dream of humanity for more than a century, and we are making that dream a reality. Because of that, marketing has always had a very special place at Furhat, and we have always strived to tell great stories and master digital experiences that live us to the story and the product we are building.
