Fox Robotics is at the bleeding edge of warehouse automation, with a focus on autonomous forklifts. As the leader in this space, Fox has clear product market fit and is scaling fast, with plans to rapidly grow from 100 employees to nearly ~160+ this year alone. With this growth, employees have a once-in-a-career opportunity to learn, all while working as part of a mission-driven team focused on making robots that work.

We are seeking a Lead Application Engineer to spearhead our application development team, focusing on delivering high-quality applications that our customers rely on for their day-to-day operations. This role involves leading a cross-functional team of developers and designers to create intuitive and reliable applications for both a tablet-based interface for robotic forklifts and a comprehensive cloud application for fleet management.

What you’ll do:

  • Upgrade the design and functionality of the apps our customers use to operate our robots to support new features like trailer loading, and remote task assignment
  • Build a web portal that allows customers to monitor their fleet’s performance, extract business value and configure details of the robots’ operating environment
  • Collaborate closely with our product designer and stakeholders to ensure the features the team implements deliver maximum value
  • Manage and provide technical leadership for your team

What you’ll need:

  • 5+ years of industry experience developing web or mobile apps in TypeScript and React
  • Demonstrable examples of leading a team to deliver high quality applications

Nice to have:

  • Experience with robotics or IoT environments
  • Familiarity with Python, MongoDB, OAuth, or Android app development
  • Be located in Austin, TX and able to come into the office several days a week

Benefits and perks:

  • A once in a career opportunity to build, alongside colleagues who deeply care (plus robots that aren’t bad, either!)
  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Generous healthcare options
  • 401k match
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Other perks that connect us, including lunch on Fridays, team building activities, and more!

More About Fox Robotics

We make robots that work.

We envision a world where robots serve as a human multiplier for dull and dangerous work. The warehousing industry sees more than 52,000 cases of injuries every year in the US. Our first product is an automated trailer unloader (forklift) that quickly demonstrates measurable value to our customers by both improving efficiency while also increasing safety.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
