Field Engineer
Dusty Robotics

Who We Are

Dusty Robotics is an early-stage, venture-backed startup automating construction through advanced robotics. While today's buildings are built predominantly with manual labor, Dusty envisions a future in which skilled labor makes use of robotic automation to make the work safer, more efficient, and more precise. We want to create a future in which construction workers don't need to retire early because their bodies give out. In Dusty's future, the buildings where we live/work/play are built by teams of creative and problem-solving construction crews, who are directing robots to do the dull/dirty/dangerous work.
