Description

Summary

Do you want a rubbish job?

At Recycleye, we’re on a mission to build the recycling industry of the 21st century. One of the world’s biggest challenges is waste- how do you sort it, store it, and reuse it? Recyleye’s proprietary waste – sorting technology solves this issue for waste handlers and accelerates the world’s transition to a circular economy.

We’re looking for a Workshop Assistant to join us as a key hire on our journey to developing the recycling infrastructure of the future. You’ll have the opportunity to play an integral role in building a world-changing product while developing your own skills and qualifications.

About Recycleye

Currently, the sorting of waste materials is done by manual workers. This is expensive, slow, and inaccurate. It’s estimated that the average materials recovery facility spends 60% of their operating costs on these manual workers. To date, AI and robotics have not been advanced enough to reduce this cost and make recycling cheaper, more efficient, and more widespread.

At Recycleye we’ve taken this into our own hands and decided to create the future. Recycle’s groundbreaking computer vision technology allows the automatic sorting of waste while our robotic picker system sorts it accordingly. Combined, they replicate the capabilities of the human brain, eye, and arm. We predict our technology will save the average materials recovery facility over $4 million.

Our technology stands to change the way recycling is done and we have received significant traction. We have a technology development partnership with Microsoft, are members of the world-leading Plug and Play accelerator, and have received grants/funding from the UK government and a number of high-profile VC funds.
