Our Company Culture

Building robots that work takes a team of skilled and committed people. From software engineers to forklift operators to data labelers and more, each person at Fox Robotics plays a critical role in our success.

If you were in a very large company, you would probably be working on a small, tiny feature. Here, we get to see the actual robot go through manufacturing, integration… Everything is in house, so we get to dabble in all these fronts. And that’s something that really excites me.
