About the FactoryOS team & this role

Hadrian's FactoryOS ("Flow") is the backbone of our operations, automating everything from customer paperwork, to supply chain operations, to resource scheduling, error handling, hardware data integrations, quality inspection processes & more. 

This role is responsible for how Flow interacts with the factory data network and physical world, which means building out the architecture and integrations to our machines, quality equipment, robotic support equipment, tooling & other hardware.
