CHANGING THE WORLD
AT A TIME
aescape - pronounced "escape" and inspired by aesthetics and Aesculaepius, the Greek god of healing and spas, is a robotics company building intelligent, highly personalized wellness experiences designed to help people have better relationships with their bodies.
Founded by serial entrepreneurs and backed by a host of savvy investors, we live at the intersection of body science and computer science, and are hard at work creating the first generation of something we believe will meaningfully improve people's daily lives.
We'll share more when we're ready.
Work With US
We're a small, incredibly strong team of technologists and scientists with deep experience in robotics, computer vision, machine learning, body sciences, and building successful companies. Join us for the opportunity to create something truly different that will challenge you every step of the way, and when completed, will help improve the lives of the people who experience it.
You'll work on product development of core hardware systems that will help shape the future of fitness, wellness, and self care, and that will form the basis of a suite of products with the potential for enormous impact. This is a once-in-a-career opportunity.
Day to day, you'll work to engineer components of a complex system that needs to interact with the human body in a safe and effective manner. This will involve in design and prototyping of novel soft end effectors as well as core mechanical engineering of the mechanical structure of our system. End effector design will involve multiple aspects of soft elastomers. All work will involve collaboration with industrial designers and manufacturing engineers to build a final product that is beautiful and easy to build at scale.
If this is the right role for you, you will work with our engineers, architects, and designers to create a high-end interface for interaction with our robotic systems. This is a core team role that will require expert software development and excellent interpretation of requirements into a functional and robust system.
We're looking for someone who knows how to write great software and is passionate about making systems work together to help us move from prototype to product. You'll work on advanced robotics applications for a remarkable product that will make people feel great, and once you see what we’re building, you’ll immediately understand why they will.
You are a full-stack or server-side engineer who has a strong grasp and experience in application architecture including but not limited to API Gateways, Data Access layers, integration software. You have deep experience in services or microservices oriented architecture and cloud deployments.
Your focus will be on developing infrastructure for our company’s core product, including tasks such as determining the overall architecture, developing new product features, leading the testing and deployment.
If this is the right role for you, You will be an engineer developing different sets of tools at the heart of the perception team. Point cloud filtering, multiple cameras calibration, sensor fusion, body fitting, machine learning and optimization will be your day to day work. You might help in the interaction with our robots using ROS infrastructure, as well as developing novel algorithms to improve our body modeling and palpation systems. You do need to be diligent, curious, have a clear sense of urgency, and a willingness to take complete ownership of your code from prototype all the way through deployment
