What we Believe
We believe that the advances in robotics and machine learning will transform the food industry, just as they are changing many industries now. In the not-too-distant future, the meals we eat will be prepared - chopped, cooked, and served - with the help of robots. This will save people - and businesses - time, lower costs, improve and standardise quality, and reduce food waste.
Who we Are
REMY Robotics is the latest project from Kinetik, a technology investment group with companies at the cutting edge of Electric Vehicles (ARRIVAL), Robofacturing (TRA Robotics) and Autonomous Vehicles (Roborace). Kinetik has offices in London, Los Angeles, and Moscow, while REMY Robotics is located in Barcelona with some engineering functions in Moscow. For REMY Robotics, we have brought together talented specialists in the fields of robotics and machine learning from all over the world.
What we're Building
We are using robotic technology to take the routine and inefficiency out of cooking, creating a ‘robot chef’ that can help in cook any cuisine or any dish in the world. This could be used for businesses (factories, restaurants, delivery-only), or at home, where people will be able to eat restaurant quality meals at a fraction of the cost.
The core technologies that will allow us to do this are:
● Robotic Perception - we can achieve a new level of understanding of the environment through advanced machine learning and computer vision techniques.
● Robotic Intelligence - Our algorithms can control to a precise level, creating an intelligent robot that can perform and adapt in every environment.
● Robotic Platform - From driver level to high level control, our software is being optimised to meet the high performance and reliability standards of required tasks.
About the role
As our Business Development manager, you are not only the creative brain behind our commercial strategy, you also enjoy getting your hands dirty and finding the right partners for REMY. We will rely on a strong network of collaborators across academics, restaurant operators and robotics to be successful and you will navigate one or more of these spaces for us. In this extremely diverse role, you may be signing partnerships with large food chains one day, only to take off to a robotics conference the next. All the while, you're finding your way through a space that is still very much in development and will have a chance to help shape it as you go along.
