This is a first for Dispatches … we’re posting job openings in the U.S. But one of our team in the U.S. alerted us that Picnic is scouring the globe for engineering talent, something we have a lot of here in our HQ of Eindhoven. And we are all about the global mobility of talent.
Our guy Steve, an engineer who works with startups, is close to the Picnic management team and says these guys are for real. Picnic designs and builds automated equipment for the commercial food and restaurant sector, including an automated pizza oven. This is where machine learning, hardware, software, cloud computing, design, and robotics all intersect in the restaurant of the future. There are a lot of believers, and so far Picnic has raised $20.5 million in various fundraising rounds. That capital will be used to build the team and add new tech, according to CEO Clayton Wood’s LinkedIn post.
And word from Steve is, Picnic is projecting 100 new jobs over the coming year.
Open positions include:
• Senior Robotics Project Engineer
The position includes evaluating and prioritizing technical risk of problems requiring new approaches, and work closely with team members and vendor partners on mechanical, electrical, software/firmware, business and operations to develop ground-breaking solutions.
• Senior Controls Engineer
This position will be responsible for designing, building, and researching technologies that will help with food distribution. You will need to develop detailed controlled software for precise control of the mechanical parts. You will be responsible for driving performance based on machine capabilities and meeting product requirements.
Picnic also needs marketing people and operations talent.
Yes, there might be visa obstacles, but under the current administration, American companies once again are offering skills-based visas to recruit foreign talent.
Founded in 2016 and based in Seattle, Picnic has an experienced team of food and technology industry veterans who develop and provide specialized intelligent technology and exclusive solutions for the food service and hospitality industries. Restaurants, convenience and grocery stores, university and corporate campuses, casinos, hotels, cruise lines, sports venues, catering groups, healthcare cafeterias, small kiosks, ghost kitchen operators, mobile food operations, food trucks, delivery and military sites are among the many segments poised to benefit from the company’s automated food assembly platform integrating RaaS, software, cloud and deep learning technology.
