Built Robotics’ mission is to build the robots that build the world. By upgrading off-the-shelf heavy equipment with AI guidance systems, Built’s technology enables machines to operate fully autonomously. Built’s robots are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry, and they’re being used to build critical infrastructure such as solar and wind farms, pipelines, and data centers.

As a Field Operations Technician, you’ll have a foundational role in charting this growth and bringing innovation to one of the world’s most critical industries. Join us!


You’ll have a broad responsibility deploying our autonomous equipment in the field. You’ll be on the front line deploying our technology and working closely with our construction customers and partners to ensure that they have an exceptional product experience. In addition, you will work closely with the company’s engineering team, identifying feature developments and recommending future products.

Much of our technology also requires running tests on actual hardware, and you will support the engineering team by leading day-to-day operations, debugging, and troubleshooting on the robots. Finally, you will be representing the Built Robotics brand to ensure we always deliver the safest and best product.
