Technical Program Manager at Agility Robotics
Albany, OR, US

At Agility Robotics, we are building the world’s first-to-market bipedal humanoid robot designed to operate in human spaces, with humans, for humans, and around humans. Our new robot platform, Digit, performs physical work in human spaces, turning basic labor into a software application. Our robots can operate in the real world because of features such as long battery life, mobility over all human-accessible terrain, force-controlled physical interaction, 360-degree perception sensing, and a clear path to affordable hardware and large scale deployments.

We are looking for people to join our team who are as excited as we are to bring this enabling capability to market. Be part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform the robotics industry.
