UI/UX Engineer
Job description

Job title

UI/UX Engineer


In Connected Robotics, we develop robotic systems that cook or do dishes, trying to reduce the workload in restaurant/home kitchens. As a UI/UX Engineer, your role is to design and transform the robots into something fun, exciting and easy-to-use for general users.

Our “end users” include both people working in restaurants and people who purchase food that are prepared by the robots. Robots should be as simple-to-operate and easy-to-use as possible for users in kitchens, while giving more fun and exciting purchase experiences for general consumers.

What you’ll do

  • Develop efficient and easy-to-use user interface, with users in restaurants and factories first in mind
  • Distinguish human actions from robotic processes and design workflows
  • Create efficient and effective flows to check system functions
  • Determine necessary functions and implement them
  • Develop UX to make spaces shared between humans and robots more creative and entertaining
  • Provide mutual communication between general consumers and robots

Robot technologies have gotten quite popular around the globe. As we also aim to expand our business overseas in the future, our office is international and diverse in age and gender. We look for UI/UX Engineers eager to work on new and challenging projects with us in this environment!
