Automata’s mission is to democratise robotics. We create the tools that empower people to automate physical work they should no longer have to do.

But who is this for? Isn’t automation solved already?
Glad you asked. Automation isn’t solved - far from it. Even in factories where automation is prolific, only 1 in 10 automatable tasks is automated. The rest of the work is done by people - sometimes in inhuman conditions, often for minimum wage, and its always menial. And such physical work isn’t just limited to factories - it's all around us - even in our homes. This is what we’re solving. The challenges that lie ahead of us are unprecedented, and the impact they will have is even larger. The tools we make will redefine what it is to work, and they are for everyone.

And we go all the way in making these tools - we do our own hardware, mechanical, electronics, firmware, front-end, back-end and control system. We even designed our own gearboxes. We’re not easily fazed, get excited by formidable challenges and take them on if it makes sense. If you can relate to that, you’re in the right place. Read on.


We are looking for a Marketing Ninja.

As a Marketing Ninja at Automata, you are an exceptional storyteller and the mark of your success is an absolutely enchanted audience who are enamoured by the object of your story. You understand that a good story is as much about picking the right audience as it is about the story itself and how its delivered. There’s probably a few hundred other ingredients that go into running a consistently successful marketing operation - which, honestly, you should be telling us about instead of the other way round.

Probably the most important ingredient in that mix is a game changing product. And we promise you we’ve got that covered - you’ll see that when you visit us. What we’re doing here is going to redefine what it is to ‘work’ - and we want a strong, powerful and humane voice that can compliment the boldness of our ambition yet be sensitive to the sometimes fragile relationship between people and technology.

In more specific terms, here’s what we’d like to see in you:
You have worked on building a very attractive brand - and told its story very well
With us, you’ll be working on ‘category creation’ - this isn’t for the faint hearted, but the rewards are worth the hardships. If you’ve done this before, we want you
You have the strategic and technical bandwidth to build our marketing operation into a substantially sized team in just a few years. This would mean you’re well versed with market research, working with Product Managers, growth hacking and setting up user feedback loops, and then eventually team building and delegation
You have run marketing operations for a high-volume, low-touch product, preferably a tech product
There is a practical story to be told and there’s an emotional one. You should understand the difference and know how to blend them, how much and when
If you haven’t run any complex marketing operation or built a team before, this is probably not for you - unless you’re a prodigy

Why us?
Work with a talented, passionate, and diverse team of humans (and robots) democratising robotics and defining the future of work
Competitive salary with regular salary reviews, a company backed pension scheme and attractive share options after you pass your probation period
The right technology setup for you to succeed in your role; laptop, monitors, software licences, robot assistants etc.
Flexible working hours
Company sponsored cycle to work scheme
Access to a free pantry at the office, providing breakfast, healthy snacks and a truly vast variety of hot and cold beverages, oh and we’ve got an ice machine
On Fridays we enjoy a team lunch all together, provided by the company,
Friday afternoon beers (and the occasional tray of donuts, if the lunch was too healthy)
Social clubs organised by the team (run/climb/suggest something new!)
Broaden your knowledge of the world and your specific areas of interest through the Automata Book Club
