    Who are we?

    Passionate about food? Love the idea of playing with robots? Enter Karakuri.

    We are a small, friendly and creative team building robots for restaurant and food industries and we’re having a lot of fun along the way. Our teams work across robotics, mechatronics, software and down into embedded systems.

    What will you do?

    • In this role, you’ll be conceptualising and developing mechanical designs for robotic systems, and following them through to manufacture. This will include mechanisms for dispensing various food types, designs for pick and place systems, and structures for both human and robot interaction.

    • You will be responsible for working with the team to concept, prototype, and design these systems for manufacture.

    • In this role, you will be responsible for aspects of:
    • ● Development of robotic systems and robot programming
      ● Integration of machine vision and development of novel control algorithms
      ● Gripper and manipulator design, including motion and force capture and feedback
      ● Applying reinforcement learning and other techniques to optimise the performance of our systems, whilst working with highly variable foodstuffs.
      ● Coming up with innovative solutions to new and novel problems

    • You will be working in a small and dynamic team with a high level of autonomy and ability to take ownership and drive projects to be delivered on time and within constraints.


    • What we need you to have
    • ● 2-5 years of industry experience
      ● Bachelor’s degree in robotics or a related discipline, or equivalent hands-on experience
      ● Proven track record of working on complex projects
      ● Able to apply state of the art vision and control and learning techniques to real-world projects.
      ● Experienced in python / C++ programming

    • It would be a bonus if you have:
    • ● Experience with Artificial Intelligence, Computer vision or Machine learning
      ● Experience with autonomous vehicles and navigation algorithms
      ● Designed custom grippers and manipulators
      ● Worked in environments with multiple robots working cooperatively.
      ● Knowledge, experience, and troubleshooting with machine automation (design and programming)
      ● Ability to create robot paths and develop robot programming


    • As well as being a fun place to work, we also offer a competitive salary and the following perks:
    • ● Company Stock option scheme
      ● Bonus scheme
      ● Good contributory pension
      ● Vitality Health Insurance - giving you discounted gym membership plus many more rewards
      ● Monthly social events!
      ● And of course, you’ll get to play with our robots...
