We are looking for a full-stack developer to join our Interactions team.

As part of the Interactions team, you will have a unique opportunity to work both on developing the tools for developers to build robot applications, as well as build robot applications yourself. To clarify, on one hand you will work on our social robot platform, specifically tools used for skill developers and designers to build applications for Furhat.

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.

As a full-stack developer in our Interactions team, you will:

  • Work together with UI/UX designers to architect and implement features on our developer-facing parts of the platform - such as tools for dialog design and natural language modeling

  • Together with dialog designers build social robot applications for Furhat, both working on live products and proof-of-concept projects.

  • Collaborate with other developers, platform engineers, product owners and other stakeholders.
