  • Stockholm

For social robots, the time is now: they are no longer science fiction. All over the world - in homes, schools, hospitals, airports, shops, offices, banks, hotels and more - social robots are now being deployed in order to help people lead better lives, support employees, delight customers and add value to businesses. People are entering a new era where talking to machines and interacting with them in our most natural human way is becoming a normal part of everyday life. But it's still early days in this revolution, the rules are still being written and the road ahead is wide open. At Furhat Robotics, we’ve built an unparalleled integrated software and hardware platform that allows us to do things with our robot that no other robot can do. And that’s where you come in.

We are looking for a Talent Acquisition Specialist/Technical Recruiter to join our Operations team. You will work closely with our teams to get to know their organization, proactively understand their competence needs, and help them to build stellar teams. You make sure we hire amazing people that align with our values. As part of the Operations team, you will play a leading role in designing how recruitment and onboarding are done, developing our employer brand and running our recruiting processes globally as we grow as an organization.

By joining Furhat, you will accompany us on a journey to create world-leading conversational robots that interact with us the way we interact with each other. You will be part of a very 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.

Please address your questions to Susanne Gylesjö and submit your resume through our website as soon as possible, as we are aiming at a swift process – we can’t wait to get you started!

As a Talent Acquisition Specialist you will:

  • own and lead recruitment processes in close collaboration with the team managers and you will be the gatekeeper to Furhat Robotics, securing the most talented humans to our robots

  • perform and develop technical assessments, capacity tests, personality tests and contracts
  • stay on top of the latest HR findings and research pushing the boundaries of social robotics
  • network and represent Furhat’s vision, to make sure you contribute to the buzz and fame of Furhat, at events and meet-ups etc

  • develop Furhat Robotics’ policy to promote gender balance and to foster diversity
  • monitor and report performance and quality of hiring pipelines for main key stakeholders
