Office Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I get to come to work every day and play with giant robots! It's my 5-year-old dream come true, and the adult me too! No day is the same here because we're developing an entirely new manufacturing process, which demands creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. I expect daily intellectual stimulation, challenges and lots of fun!


Process Development Manager

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

A true dynamic team is one where everyone has a voice, is involved and open to new ideas, approaches, and feedback – including the leadership team. Keeping open dialogue throughout the company is essential. I have an open-door policy, hold office hours, attend planning meetings for teams that I don’t directly work with, and am very hands on.



What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We are building and deploying fast-inference Edge AI models to guide large industrial robotic arms in forging sheet metal from user-defined designs with sub-millimeter precision. Our long-term objective is to create the brain of a robotic craftsman.
