Job Description

Targeted start date: Immediately.

1X designs androids built to benefit society. Since 2014, we’ve been building androids with the product design mindset of safety first, balanced performance, and smart behavior. Our mission is to build androids that work alongside people to meet the world’s labor demand and build an abundant society. Our wheeled model, EVE, is engineered to work with you, from guarding to logistics, and our bipedal model, NEO, is designed to become a general-purpose android, with a broad deployment in various applications, and, eventually, assisted living.

Founded in Moss, Norway, 1X has grown into an international team with offices around the globe. 1X envisions a bright new future: humans and androids, working and learning, Side by Side.

We are currently seeking a highly skilled and motivated Electric Motor Design Engineer to join our Actuators team. In this role, you will be responsible for designing and implementing electric motors for our next-generation bipedal humanoid robot. Collaborating closely with other hardware- and software-teams, you will play a vital role in everything from early concept stages to serial manufacturing. The ideal candidate will have a background in electrical engineering or mechatronics, extensive expertise and experience in electric motors, experience in systems integration including mechanical and thermal aspects, and familiarity with design for manufacturing and assembly principles. We are looking for individuals with hands-on experience, a "get-things-done" attitude, and the ability to excel in both long-term planning and day-to-day execution of practical tasks.
