Manufacturing & Supply Chain
Mountain View, CA (HQ)
We are the Everyday Robot Project at X, a moonshot that brings together people with varied skill sets and backgrounds to build a future where robots can be as helpful to people in the physical world as computers now are in the virtual world. We believe that the future of robotics and AI can unfold in a way that has lasting positive impact in our everyday lives and our wider communities. Our mission is to build learning robots that help people everyday and everywhere live better lives. Creating robots that can learn in different ways involves navigating some of the hardest challenges in robotics today. It’s an ambiguous and iterative process, so we’ve worked hard to create a team environment where collaboration and creativity can flourish, and where people always feel comfortable bringing their unique perspectives and expertise to the table.
We're looking for a materials manager for a new product introduction production line for a complex robotics project. This role is part of a manufacturing organization responsible for delivering consistent robots while also incorporating frequent changes and upgrades to the product as well as supporting ongoing R&D efforts. The materials manager role involves being flexible and dynamic and creating tools and processes, not just using them. Our planning, inventory, and purchasing systems of the team are GSheets based and the role requires comfort with these systems. The materials management lead will interface across design engineering, manufacturing engineering, test engineering, manufacturing, and support teams to ensure materials availability for each of these teams needs. This is an exciting, dynamic role which is critical to the success of a moonshot in robotics.
