Attention Future Innovators – We Are Looking For You!

Are you an innovator? Do you tinker with existing products to see how they work? Do you feel like you can design them better? Are you driven by a hard-to-explain but tangible passion for creating solutions to problems no one else has thought of yet? Then you may have what it takes to join our team at IWT.

We are a culture of inventors. Testers. Problem solvers. We have a drive to design and engineer better solutions. Whether it’s a complex robotic application for our clients, or our bicycle at home, we are not happy until we have found a way to make it perform better. We noodle over these problems day and night. If a design or a system isn’t working perfectly, neither are we.

With recent advances in sensor and vision technologies, collaborative robotics, machine learning and Artificial Intelligence – there has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the automation industry!

What will we come up with next?

Maybe you can help us. We’re looking for future innovators to our team.

IWT is growing and we need talented innovators to join our family. Select an open position below to complete a job application.
