Infrastructure Engineer for innovative robotic machine company

Server Side, Back End Engineer, Network Engineer

About the company
Established in 2014, this company is aiming to become the most innovative robot machine corporation in Japan and eventually in the world. The company is trying to solve the labor shortage problems caused by the low birth rates in Japan through breakthroughs in the robotics and automation industry. They are particularly targeting to solve the labor crunch through innovations in the food service and hospitality sector.

While machines are most commonly used in factory automation and manufacturing, the company is attempting to create developments through innovative cooking. One of their recent creations is a robotic machine which can cook a Japanese snack called takoyaki, which is an octopus enveloped in a batter mix and cooked specifically in an iron mold. The preparation and cooking style of this Japanese snack is unique and requires a specific skill. Having automated robots learn and execute this art is truly revolutionary.

The CEO's mission for this company is to make the overall lives of people and their communities easier and more efficient through robotic innovation and technology.
Corporate Culture
There are more than 15 people currently working in their Tokyo office and 3 of them are from overseas.
