What we do

We are an exciting new B2B SaaS start-up creating the future of manufacturing! We believe that blue-collar workers are an essential part of this transformation. We are dedicated to empowering these workers by assisting them in their daily tasks and unlocking the full potential of manual labor through productivity and flexibility.

We are utilizing cutting-edge technology, such as computer vision and artificial intelligence, to revolutionize manufacturing by providing workers with the tools they need to improve their productivity beyond current limitations. Our focus is initially on assembly processes, but we plan to expand to other areas, including material consignment and machine repair activities. By improving efficiency, we aim to make products more affordable and use resources more sustainably.

Our team is led by experienced entrepreneurs Max and Silviu. Max has previously founded a company in manufacturing that digitized 40 factories, and Silviu holds a PhD in computer science and is a computer vision expert. He has previously led a team that developed a robot taxi service at Volkswagen and built a startup in the security industry. Our team includes members from top-tier universities such as ETH and MIT, as well as individuals with entrepreneurial experience in the fashion industry and at leading research institutions like Fraunhofer. 

At our company, we value hard work, creativity, and a willingness to learn and grow. We are committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce and welcome candidates of all backgrounds. Our job is 100% remote, and we actively support a healthy work-life balance. Additionally, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical insurance and a learning and development budget. Furthermore, we provide flexible scheduling options and the opportunity for employees to set their own schedule to support our employee's families and personal responsibilities.

We are financially backed by Merantix, the world’s first AI Venture Studio. We are proud to be part of a team that includes some of the world’s most talented engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs from prestigious universities such as Yale, Oxford, and Harvard.
