HELPING BODIES LIVE BETTER, LONGER.

WE'RE A ROBOTICS COMPANY BUILDING INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL GREAT.

 

CHANGING THE WORLD

ONE BODY

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.

NYC

Director of Quality - Medical Robotics

We're a small team working on a phenomenal application of robotics in the fitness/wellness space, looking for someone to lead our quality engineering team in order to help us move from prototype to a commercially viable product. You'll be given the opportunity to work on a team tackling 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.

NYC

Product Management Lead - Connected Health / Fitness Apps 

We're looking for someone to own and lead the development of our family of applications, both on-device apps (think: Peloton, Tonal, Tempo, Mirror, etc.), as well as mobile apps for managing the ongoing relationship with our services (booking, visualizing service-related data, third-party service integration management, etc). You'll be given the opportunity to lead a team tackling super interesting challenges in human-machine interactions for a remarkable product that will make people feel great, and once you see what we’re building, you’ll immediately understand why.

NYC

Senior Robotics Software Engineer - Planning 

If this is the right role for you, you’ll help us build core software components that are at the heart of our product and will work with a stellar team along the way. You will be responsible for robot motion planning in a dynamic and safety critical environment. This includes curated mission planning based on human input, motion path generation and simulation for high DoF systems, real-time adjustments, and system certification.

MX/GDL

Computer Vision Engineer

 

Day to day, you'll get to help us define the fundamentals of software at the heart of our product, and will work with a stellar team along the way. You will be responsible for developing the perception pipelines needed to power our autonomous product. You will help us to improve our perception capabilities, from the tuning of our 3D perception sensors and the implementation of scene segmentation and understanding algorithms; to the design and implementation of the methods required to interpret the body state of our users based on the combination of remote sensing and palpation.

MX/GDL

Lead QA Engineer 

If this is the right role for you, you’ll help us build core software components that are at the heart of our product and will work with a stellar team along the way. You will be responsible for planning, leading, and developing our software quality practices, tools, and implementations.
