Built Robotics' mission is to build the robots that build the world. As the inventor of the world's first autonomy solution for excavators, the Exosystem™, Built transforms excavators into fully autonomous trenching robots. Exosystems are deployed today across the $1 trillion earthmoving industry, building critical infrastructure in energy, telecom, and more.


You will be responsible for deploying our autonomous equipment in the field. You’ll be on the front line, working closely with our partners to ensure that they can operate our products and seamlessly integrate them into their operations. 

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.
