REMY Robotics

About REMY

REMY Robotics is the sister company of Arrival, the disruptive UK electric vehicle 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. We’ve brought together the top talent in Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Software Engineering, and Mechatronics from around the world to build robotics and digital solutions for the food tech industry of tomorrow. Our HQ, complete with robotics lab and R&D kitchen – is based in Barcelona, but now we’re ready to expand our tech-enabled B2C food operations to new cities in Europe and beyond. That’s where you come in…

The role

We’re looking for a mid-to-senior level professional with experience working in an international business to spearhead the launch of REMY’s commercially active, robotics-enabled kitchens in Paris. As this is our first dedicated expansion hire in France, you’ll be a driven self-starter with an entrepreneurial mindset, but should be equally capable of thriving as part of a team. We’ll expect you to execute REMY’s strategic expansion priorities in your market, but also to identify and propose new expansion opportunities to key internal stakeholders, including REMY’s CEO and Ops Lead. You should have a good amount of experience in a relevant field such as business development, expansion or consulting, and it’s important that you’re an excellent communicator with a natural ability to persuade and win people over. Finally, if you already have an established network of foodservice or on-demand food delivery contacts (in France and/or further afield), that’s a big plus!

We’re immensely proud of the technology we’ve created, and believe it has the power to change the way people make, choose and eat food, for the better. If you’re excited about the idea of making a positive impact within a truly unique, mission-driven business, while working alongside a friendly, talented team, then we encourage you to apply!
