Do you want to make the world of robots more human?
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 being deployed in order to help people lead better lives, support employees, delight customers, and add value to businesses.
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. Our mission is to enable a revolution in human-computer interaction through social and conversational robotics.
About The Position
We are looking for an Account Manager within the Scientific Research field. You will be responsible for sales of our world leading social robotics solutions and services to international academic / research institutions.
Here is what Anne, our Head of Commercial, says about the position:
“As an Account Manager you will have a pivotal role for the sales of our world leading social robotics solutions. You will drive sales: from first contact and demonstrating our range of robot products to establishing long-term, strategic client relationships that can evolve over time. I believe that success in this role depends on understanding customers and translating their needs into matching research solutions. We follow a collaborative approach to help our customers meet their goals; speaking to them on a peer level, one to one, is how we build relationships.”
You will work in our Commercial Team with another Account Manager as well as Marketing and Customer Success - including you, the team consists of nine people. You can choose to work remote or from our office in Stockholm and will report to the Head of Commercial. Travel will be a natural part of your work, so we believe that you view this as a perk.
At Furhat Robotics, you will be part of a team of scientists, entrepreneurs, and engineers who design and build the most advanced social robots on the planet. We are on a quest to make robots more human, and we are thankful to be backed by some of Europe’s most prominent investors.
We have a very nice office setup that is easily accessible for commuters, our employees choose their own tech gear and enjoy free beverages, snacks, delicious team-huddle ginger shots, health and wellness benefits, occupational pension, health and life insurances, flexible hours, paid vacation and parental leave, as well as competitive options packages. When safe enough, we organize a variety of team-building activities such as game nights, AWs, movies, lunch-break swims, lectures, and - obviously - you'll get to work with some of the coolest technology currently available.
About Our Recruitment And Selection Process
We know that we achieve greater things when we have a diverse team. Different backgrounds, different personalities and different experiences all help to broaden our perspectives and push our innovation and creativity. We welcome and encourage all applications regardless of religion, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or age.
The above is one of the reasons as to why we use data-driven and evidence-based methods in our recruitment, e.g. validated psychometric tests, skills tests, and structured interviews. These methods reduce bias and discrimination and increase the fairness and efficiency for all parties.
These are the “Must-haves” that we have identified for this position:
You need to have a graduate degree in e.g. Human-Robot Interaction, computational linguistics, psychology, engineering, Human-Computer Interaction, or similar fields.
You need to have a technical understanding with the ability to transfer this knowledge to customers, sales colleagues, and development teams.
You need to have excellent presentation skills and a consultative approach with customers.
You need to be fluent in English, any other language is a plus.
We find it to be a strong merit if you have experience in selling into or working with universities or non-profits or government entities.
