Be the first to get Moxie! RESERVE NOW

Jr. Performance Designer

May 8, 2020

Embodied, Inc.’s mission is to build socially and emotionally intelligent animate companions with believable personality and empathy to enhance our daily lives. We have developed a new platform, SocialXTM, that provides a way to use natural human interaction to engage with technology. The first iteration of this technology is Moxie, an animate companion for children developed 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). 

From the heart of Old Town, Pasadena in sunny Los Angeles, California, our diverse team of engineers, therapists, and designers is led by experts in robotics, AI and machine learning, entertainment, and consumer electronics. We are financially backed by some of the most prominent corporate and institutional investors including Intel Capital, Toyota AI Ventures, Amazon Alexa Fund, Sony Innovation Fund, JAZZ Venture Partners, Calibrate Ventures, Osage University Partners, Grishin Robotics, and Vulcan Capital.

Join a team working to transform child development through play-with-a-purpose engagement powered by cutting-edge social technology! We are looking for contract/full-time Jr. Performance Designers to support our team using the company's in-house tools to create, review, and modify vocal, animated, and physical character performances for the company's first robot designed to help kids (ages 6-9) with social emotional learning (SEL). Ideal candidates are self-motivated with strong communication skills and a good sense of judgment regarding conversation, speech, and character performance.

If you've had experience in animation, theater, or games, and have a passion for creating playful content for social impact, this might be the job for you! If you believe that every day can be better through lifelong learning, we'd like to hear from you. Candidates with CS or similarly technical degrees are preferred.

Jr. Performance Designers may also have the opportunity to work in design, scripting, creative brainstorming, content development, programming, or general audio/visual asset creation to support ongoing production efforts.
