An Insider's view of RightHand Robotics

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office building is a historic post-office with residual architectural elements from the 1930's. The vibe is come-as-you-are, casual, laid back, and friendly. The office is constantly bustling with activity from both team members and robots running 24/7. Our collective interests include FOOD and drink, and general intellectual curiosity.
