Android Developer at Trexo Robotics
About the role
Trexo Robotics (YC W19) is enabling mobility by building powered wearable robots.
Our first product is a robot for children with movement disorders such as Cerebral Palsy and it allows kids to walk, in many cases for the first time in their lives. The device is currently being used by families and the best hospitals across North America.
Our work doesn't stop here, we are constantly working towards building mobility solutions for all. At Trexo Robotics you will find a flat organization where you can work with highly optimistic, low ego, and exceptionally talented individuals who look forward to solving hard problems. We love hiring interns (over 30 so far) and also have interns who eventually join us full-time.
