    • The Golden Rule: Extraordinarily powerful in its simplicity and depth: “Treat others as you would want to be treated”
    • The Power of Person: The contribution of every single person in a company is important, and the performance of the entire company can only be maximized when every person strives to achieve his/her full potential and to contribute to the best of his/her ability
    • The Power of Team: The Power of Person becomes amplified exponentially when a group of people working effectively as a team create “performance synergy”, whereby the capacity to perform as a team is much greater than the sum of the individual members’ capacities
    • The Power of Truth: We strive to see the world as it is, not as we want or imagine it to be, because only then can we make it better. This core value manifests itself through questioning, probing, testing, measuring, validating, verifying, proving, listening with an open mind, and making fact-based decisions. It also fosters transparency and honesty with others, as well as self-examination and self-honesty

An Insider's view of Alert Innovation

What projects are you most excited about?

While the team was developing Alphabot software, we realized the need to write our own state machine framework because nothing met all our needs. It was an amazing project to work on and it showed me that coding is actually "fun". While working on the tote transfer project, I saw its creation from beginning to end which was very exciting to see.

Miheer

Embedded Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

As an intern, I got hands-on experience with the AlphaBot’s circuit boards and hardware design. Full-time, I received ownership of two boards, and I conceptualized a test board. I have grown as a leader by working with my team’s interns. Being on “the other side” has given me insight on communication and setting expectations.

McKenzie

Electrical Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

At Alert Innovation, we start with our “Why?” - To improve people's lives through innovation, starting with retail by transforming how people shop and how retailers operate. We empower cross-functional teams to brainstorm and best determine how we do this, supported by some of the world’s most knowledgeable automation experts who love to mentor.

Bill

CTO & Co-Founder

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Everyone at Alert is willing to help their fellow Alertians on projects, whether they are directly involved or not. As an intern who is now full time, I have always felt comfortable speaking up in meeting sot express my ideas by dropping by co-worker's desks to get advice on a project, which all has helped me grow as a person and engineer.
