Designer

Overview

“We innovate kitchens with robotics and contribute to resolving the worker shortage problem in the food industry”

The food industry in Japan is facing a serious shortage of workers. In fact, many restaurants close down because they can’t find enough people to work for them. Some try to shorten business hours to remedy this, but we all need a more fundamental solution to the problem.

Our robots are saviors to the industry. In Connected Robotics, we develop robotic systems to help people cook and wash dishes in restaurants and homes. We are currently looking for someone who is interested in designing robotic restaurants from scratch.

This role includes designing service concept, user experiences, robots’ and systems’ exterior, proposing graphics for the restaurant’s interior/exterior, changing/adjusting the look of the kitchen tools, adding entertaining elements to the robots’ face/voice/action, etc. We would also love you to design booths for exhibitions/demos as well as presentation/sales documents, so it actually covers all of the design aspects of our company. If you are someone with passion and style, come talk to us!
