At Canvas we are developing technology that improves the quality and affordability of the places where we work and live while improving the working conditions of the people who build these spaces.  Our mission is to empower people to build in bold new ways and our team has spent the past two years engineering and developing a brand new type of machine we are now deploying on commercial job sites.

As a Fabrication Technician, you are inspired by the challenge of creating new automation tools for the construction industry. You will be responsible for fabricating new components and subsystems and will work closely with Mechanical Engineers to understand their needs. This is a great role for someone who is detail-oriented and likes solving complex problems. This role will build small manufacturing runs, prototypes, and test equipment.

In this role you will work with multiple disciplines to create the most advanced robotic system for the construction worker. We’re a series B funded small team with a great first platform which we are refining and expanding to advance its capabilities.
