Engineered Arts is looking for an experienced CNC operator to help us develop our world class humanoid robots. Working alongside the workshop team you’ll be programming and operating some advanced machines such as our 5 axis mill-turn or our live-tool sliding head lathe.

We design and manufacture as much in-house as possible so all your work will come direct from our design team. Many of these parts are new or iterative prototype parts which you will check is possible to machine and sometimes have to think outside the box on how to produce it and on which machine is best. Reporting any issues or suggestions on optimisations for manufacture back to the design team. No two days are the same as prototype parts are quickly tested, verified and iterated. All parts are programmed offline using Autodesk Inventor CAM and our in-house developed post processor.

Our internal motto is “Be Wow”, our robots are wow and so is our workshop team, we bake wow into everything we do, and this role is no exception!

Join our talented and creative team to help build the future of humanoid robot technology.
