We are reinventing robotics! Come join our rapidly growing team of dreamers and makers who care deeply about each other and team culture.Embodied is a highly dynamic workplace with a passionate team that is not afraid to challenge the status quo.

Embodied’s mission is to create robots that help people reach their full potential! Our first product Moxie, is a loveable, lifelike, animated character that uses our breakthrough SocialX technology platform to help promote social, emotional, and cognitive learning. Moxie has been called “the robot pal you dreamed of as a kid” (Wired Magazine), “the sophisticated robot for the curious child” (Wallpaper Magazine), and “a technically impressive childhood robot” (TechCrunch). You can learn all about Moxie and see how it works: www.embodied.com

From the heart of Pasadena in sunny Los Angeles, California, our diverse team of engineers, therapists, and designers is inventing the next level of robots that know how to create an emotional connection with users using body language, realistic eye contact, and fluid conversation to revolutionize the way we can interact with robots and provide care to families in need.

Currently we are using a remote, work-from-home model but may transition to working in the office in the future. Each person’s unique situation will be considered.

We are backed by some of the most prominent investors including Intel Capital, Toyota, Amazon, Sony, and institutional VCs from LA and Silicon Valley.
