Help us drive meaningful change in the robotics industry by applying to join our team in one of our open roles. Let’s create something spectacular together.

Environment

Our offices are in North Vancouver just off Keith Road. We occupy 2 large floors that are flooded with sunlight in the summers (perfect for keeping all our plants alive). One of the office’s best features is that it is just 50m from Lynn Creek and has gorgeous walking/ chatting/ gathering areas. In addition, there are two coffee places approximately 7-minutes away (on foot) which is perfect for a quick catch-up with a colleague!

Our Core Values

A value without action is hard to imagine or measure; please take the time to read through our values and the behaviors that we love to see embraced.

We are driving innovation because we push boundaries, stay curious, and think outside the box.

  • We are hungry and on a hunt for great ideas that will help our customers

Challenge the Status Quo

Our team members are our toughest critics and biggest supporters. We welcome hard conversations and constructive confrontations that help us transform challenges into positive outcomes.

  • We are willing to give and receive constructive feedback
  • We say what we think, even if it is controversial

Inspiring Atmosphere

Work-related projects that inspire us are at the core of what we do. While we are continuously looking for new ways to simplify and improve our current SWR designs, we are always on the lookout for ways to improve our client’s experience be that with different designs and customizations OR with new accompaniments altogether. We are all in charge of helping improve what we do every day and new ideas and suggestions are welcome!
