How to work in robotics if you're not a roboticist

The thought of “working in robotics” seems glamorous in a way that almost no other tech sector currently does. But despite the overwhelming interest, talented applicants exclude themselves from the field all the time, based purely on their preconceived notions of what it takes to work on a robotics team.

The reality, as we know, is that you don’t need to have this hyper-specific background (or even work directly on the robot itself) to succeed in the field.

We’ve put together 7 unconventional ways you can cultivate a long-term career in robotics – even if you don’t have a master’s in computer vision or a PhD in AI.

Please feel free to share with any friends or colleagues who may be interested in a robotics career, but who are unsure of how their existing experience translates over to this field.

Our work is inherently cross-disciplinary, and we need experts in every possible sector to help us envision a world enhanced by robotics technology. We’re excited to see what we can build if we encourage professionals of all backgrounds to chip in to the effort :slight_smile:
