Robotics Technician

San Francisco, California
We are building the future of construction.

At Built Robotics, we are making construction safer, faster and more productive. Our team is assembling robotic upgrade kits and developing software to automate heavy equipment. It hasn’t been easy—in fact, no one has ever done what we’re doing—but with over $150 billion in heavy equipment services performed in the US each year, we believe we’re on to something. You’ll have a foundational role in charting this growth and bringing innovation to one of the world’s most critical industries. Join us!


As a Robotics Technician you’ll have broad responsibility for scaling our hardware and retrofit functions to enable autonomous machines.  You will work closely with our engineering team to spec, install and maintain hardware. Additionally, you will be responsible for establishing replicable processes to ensure reliable assembly of upgrade kits and robust quality assurance standards.  To do this, you will need a thorough understanding of how the technology works, common issues that arise, and how the product performs in the field. Given you will be the closest person to the hardware and assemblies, you will be our liaison to the engineering team, surfacing product improvement opportunities and helping us engineer a more refined, robust system.  Basically, you will be laying the groundwork for our long-term manufacturing organization as we continue to scale the business. To do this, you’ll stay abreast of new technology to ensure we have the optimal tools for the job. Much of our software development also requires running tests on actual hardware, and you’ll work with the engineering team to run the machines and get comfortable doing testing debugging, and troubleshooting.  This may also involve you deploying into the field to assist our field operations teams to perform installs or resolve complex issues that may arise.
