REMY Robotics

What we Believe

We believe that the advances in robotics and machine learning will transform the food industry, just as they are changing many industries now. In the not-too-distant future, the meals we eat will be prepared - chopped, cooked, and served - with the help of robots. This will save people - and businesses - time, lower costs, improve and standardise quality, and reduce food waste.

Who we Are

REMY Robotics is the sister company of Arrival, a recently recognized UK unicorn, and belongs to the Kinetik technology investment group which supports companies at the cutting edge of such fields as electric vehicles, robotics, autonomous driving, biotech, and artificial intelligence. REMY is bringing together top talent in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Software Engineering, and Mechatronics. We are based in Barcelona, a unique and attractive hub for both the food and tech industries, with an optimum balance of quality of life and cost of living in the Mediterranean.

What we're Building

The food industry is not only hindered by high labour costs (25-45% of revenue) but also by a labour shortage due to a high turnover rate of 80-150%. This is unsurprising when working conditions are tough, with long shifts, uncomfortable temperatures (kitchens are hot, walk-in fridges and freezers are cold) and plenty of dangers such as hot ovens and sharp knives, as well as the repetitive and boring tasks involved in the preparation of so many dishes, like chopping and slicing.

Hygiene standards are strict, and becoming stricter, especially given the current global pandemic, and it’s not always easy to ensure consistent quality across different business locations or where food delivery is concerned – a fast-growing section of the food industry. Added to all this, we have the increasing pressure to be environmentally friendly, limiting food waste and recycling as much as possible. For all these reasons and more, we are creating fully autonomous kitchens, using software-defined and adaptive robots, computer vision, artificial intelligence and mechatronics, that can ensure constant quality, adaptability to any recipe, and operational effectiveness across an endless variety of food production scenarios.

The role

You’re going to work in close collaboration with our product and operations team, app developers, CTO and CEO to help us create the products and brands people will love.
