What we do
Bumblebee makes space for what matters. Using precision robotics and software, we transform unused space by moving furniture and storage into the ceiling. Take a look at our website to see it first-hand.

We are a team from diverse backgrounds with a shared vision for making housing affordable, desirable and sustainable. Bumblebee makes space in homes, cities and the planet for more flora and fauna.

Bumblebee is a Series A company backed by some of the best VCs in the business.  We are currently scaling all our teams while preparing to bring our product to the world at an ambitious scale. We operate with an open culture with no bureaucracy and pointless meetings. In our work, we build to think and remain deeply centered on first principles and user empathy. We’re searching for driven, talented, and engaged team-members. Please reach out if this speaks to you!

The Bumblebee experience weaves digital, spatial and product interactions. While technology is at the core of our system, we strive to create a natural experience that allows it to fall into the background. Our design team is a tight knit group of industrial, spatial, digital and prototype designers. We are looking for a driven ID intern interested in redefining how we live by helping to invent clever solutions for the future. As an industrial design intern, you will work closely with the team to rapidly bring projects through ideation, prototyping, testing, and production. During your internship you will work directly on a product that will ship.
