About Pickle Robot Company:
Do you want to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, VC backed, robotic solutions company serving the warehouse and logistics industries? Then join Pickle Robot! We build robotic systems that companies and the people who work for them love.
Pickle robots unload trucks. Everyday millions of trucks and ocean freight containers are loaded and unloaded around the world. Many of those vehicles are floor-loaded, which means people need to manually handle every package - work that is difficult, dirty, sometimes dangerous, and increasingly hard to staff. Pickle Robot is laser focused on automating trailer and container unloading using AI, machine learning, computer vision, advanced sensors, and industrial robotics to deliver engineered products customers rely on. Pickle Robot Unload Systems work with people on loading docks to make the work safer, faster, and more efficient.
