ANYbotics is a fast-growing tech startup dedicated to shaping the future of mobile robotics across multiple industries. Join our highly talented and motivated team of more than 50 people and work on cutting-edge robot technology.

Our quadrupedal robot ANYmal is designed for inspection in challenging industrial environments such as industrial sites, power plants, and subterranean systems. ANYmal is equipped with powerful actuators, custom electronics, and state-of-the-art perception sensors (LIDAR, stereo cameras, GPS) to navigate through complex environments. We develop a full-stack robotics software framework with core locomotion and navigation algorithms, mapping and localization pipelines, mission setup and user interface tools.

We are looking for a UX designer to join our fast-paced product development team. You will be responsible for exploring, strategizing and unifying the user experience of the ANYmal robot enabled by software. You will own projects from start to finish, while leading various UX initiatives including running design sprints to define and explore user problems, experience mapping, sketching, wireframing, low and high fidelity prototyping, and leading stakeholder reviews. You will partner and collaborate with various departments to help our team develop empathy for our users and advocate for their needs.
