robotic following carts

Who we are:
Founded in 2016, Augean Robotics is a startup commercializing a small, simple, and sellable robot called Burro. Burro is a cart
that follows users and can record/retrace paths autonomously. With Burro, the hundreds of thousands of people who pick 1/2 of
US fruit acreage can pick continuously rather than wasting 20-30% of their time shuttling picked produce from pick point to
collection point. We believe this platform can later become the basis for many other automated tasks on farms and elsewhere;
the challenge and opportunity today, however, is winning the race to offer a mass-market simple and sellable robot.
To date, we have developed our prototype to a proof-of-concept level, and found customer interest from many of the largest
growers in the world. Now, we are looking to expand our technical team, raise a significant funding round, and guide our
product through pilots and into the marketplace. We are headquartered 30 minutes west of Philadelphia on a 191-acre farm
complete with a machine shop/prototyping facility and various test fields.

The role:
Augean Robotics is seeking a rock star CTO/Cofounder to join our team and lead the development of our robot. The ideal
candidate enjoys building and programming beautiful and well-behaved robots, and loves leading high-energy teams. This
person will also be involved with helping the CEO and Founder fundraise.
