Tech Lead

Saint Petersburg, Russia
Arrival is a technology company making vehicles the way they should be - fully electric, digitally connected, and smart. By creating innovation in vehicle design and manufacturing, Arrival is accelerating autonomous and electric vehicle technology, by fusing AI with new forms of automotive engineering. We are working with some of the world's leading businesses and governments with the goal to re-define how cities look, think and feel. Our vehicles will be 100% built by robots within our microfactories globally. We are recognised by LinkedIn as 2020’s number 1 start-up in the UK for as well as being one the world’s newest Unicorns with a £5 billion valuation.

In Arrival Robotics we create robotic industrial factory which will be able to accept and deliver any new product's design or configuration in real time without changing the whole manufacturing process.

Our factory's delivering processes are not rigidly defined, but are dynamically constructed by the operation control system depending on equipment that is free to perform operations in the moment. The external environment is constantly changing: equipment breaks down and comes back to life, we need to start new orders and cancel existing ones. Operation control system should respond to external changes and update the order fulfilment plan consistently. In addition, all elements of the system must accumulate knowledge and use it in the production process. We believe that this is how flexible manufacturing (you might know by 'industry 4.0') should look like.

Our team called Assembly Operations was created to integrate process of flexible manufacturing into Arrival products manufacturing. Right now we are searching for a Technical Lead into this team.
