HELPING BODIES LIVE BETTER, LONGER.
WE'RE A ROBOTICS COMPANY BUILDING INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL GREAT.
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."
— Eric Litman, CEO & Founder
GDL / NYC
If this is the right role for you, 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.
Principal Software Engineer - Medical Robotics
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. Your role will be the engineering technical lead, directing the efforts of taking our existing software stack and development processes through the changes required for medical software compliance. You will be heavily involved with systems design efforts and verification and validation activities. This is a cross functional role that will require close collaboration with existing software development and quality teams.
Quality Engineering Manager - 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.
Engineering Lead - IoT & Distributed Systems
Day to day, you will be leading one of our core engineering teams that is building the infrastructure that runs our full software stack - both in the cloud (AWS) and on device (our edge computing platform). Your team covers all aspects of our infrastructure - including: designs that support multiple environments, deployment processes, device provisioning, network and computing hardware selection.
Head of Robotics Software
If this is the right role for you, you will be leading and managing a core engineering team that is building the software necessary to plan and control our robot arms. Your team covers all aspects of robotics software from high level motion plans to low level actuator sensing and control. The emphasis is on building safe and reliable software, leveraging well-defined standards required by the FDA and others.
Director, Platform Engineering
Day to day, you will be leading one of our core engineering teams that is building the infrastructure that runs our full software stack, both in the cloud (AWS) and on device (our edge computing platform). Your team will cover all aspects of our infrastructure including: designs that support multiple environments, deployment processes, device provisioning, network and computing hardware selection, remote monitoring, and security.
