Starship Technologies is revolutionizing deliveries with autonomous robots, which means that engineering is at the very core of what we do. Not only does our co-founder & CTO Ahti Heinla still participate in developing our software, but we rely on our engineers to come up with ideas for goals & initiatives, to prioritise, and of course to figure out pragmatic ways of implementing them. We believe that the best decisions are made with input from our collective expertise and intelligence, using a combination of data, reason and enlightened intuition.

While engineering drives our company, our mission drives our people. Our contribution to the society includes reducing congestion and pollution, zero emissions deliveries, increasing the quality of life for residents, empowering seniors and disabled people and enabling affordable delivery for local businesses. Our delivery robots have completed over 2 million autonomous deliveries to date, driven 3 million kilometres and crossed over 17 million roads. Every day our delivery robots are completing thousands of autonomous deliveries across the US, UK and Europe. We’re hitting records on an almost weekly basis. Now is a very exciting time to join as we are growing rapidly around the world!

To continue on this mission, we are looking for a Senior Mechanical Engineer to join our Mechanical Engineering team. You will be working with hardware that will help make the robots and the infrastructure around it more capable, reliable and cost-effective to manufacture.
