WHAT WE OFFER

We are a robotics company doing some serious hardware and software engineering, and based in Surrey. By robots we mean robotic arms, rigs and pods, the ones that are used on Movie, TV Studio and E-Commerce sets to capture motion and stills. Our robots are all over the news and a good number of recent movies and sporting events would not do without us, these include Dr Strange, Rio Games, Game of Thrones and Wimbledon.

We produce great products and we work great as a team. We absolutely love our engineers, they are, truly and fully, in the centre of everything we do.

And on top of all that, we have recently merged with imaging giant Nikon Corporation to expand our horizons and flourish even further, thus we set our sails for growth and would like to take talented and skilled employees with us!
