Do you want to make the world of robots more human?
The notion of social robots has been bound to science fiction for decades. Furhat Robotics is spearheading the Social Robotics and Conversational AI Industry by making robots more human. Our mission is to enable a revolution in human-computer interaction through social and conversational robotics.
We are a collective of doers and dreamers nurtured by one common goal: making the future we’ve been dreaming about come to life :)
About the position
Furhat Robotics is looking for an additional Software Engineer for our Platform team. In this role, you will interact with projects built using a variety of technology stacks including Java, Kotlin, JS, C++, Unity, Docker, AWS, and more.
Here is what Kaspar, our Head of Engineering, says about the position:
“You will work in close collaboration with me and the rest of our development team on the core parts of our platform. This includes the subsystems for computer vision, audio processing, facial animation, motion control, robot management, and many more. As such, this is an incredible opportunity to have a key role in the evolution of our state-of-the-art social robotics platform. You will contribute to the overall platform architectural direction and implementation choices in the platform, design and implement features, as well as new subsystems in the platform using Java, identify and select new technologies for use in the platform and much, much more :)”
This is what (who?) you will be working with: https://youtu.be/vqZgIOAW9bo.

Work with the coolest technology around
Furhat Robotics is pioneering artificial intelligence and social robotics with a vision to make interaction with technology truly human. Founded by four PhDs in social robotics at KTH, we are an ambitious team of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs backed by prominent investors.
Our product is the most expressive and customizable social robot on the market. It is powered by a state-of-the-art multi-modal conversational platform and a developer suite used by 3rd party developers to build robot applications.
We are convinced that social robots (as a new type of user interface) will follow a similar growth and disruptive role to that of the personal computer and the smartphone. Moving from very expensive technologies, with narrow applications in big corporates, to becoming open platforms for millions of people around the world to develop applications for them.
We are looking for dreamers that share our passion and wants to join our ride :)
