Dorabot Opens an R&D Center in Brisbane, Australia

Date: 10-09-2018

Dorabot, a market-leader in AI-powered robotic logistics solutions, announced today the establishment of their first overseas R&D center in Brisbane, Australia. The Brisbane center, a big step forward for the company in establishing an international footprint, will be led by Amazon Robotics Challenge champion Adam Tow, an alumnus of QUT's world-renowned Australian Centre for Robotic Vision.

 

Adam joined Dorabot and moved to Shenzhen last year to work on some of the company's ongoing commercial projects. Noticing a relative shortage of robotics companies with R&D teams based in Australia, Adam and Dorabot's executives saw an excellent opportunity to recruit talent down under and help local businesses by establishing a local R&D center in Brisbane.

 

"I'm excited to help bolster the robotics industry here in Brisbane," says Adam. "We'll be working on a number of major projects alongside the Shenzhen team before branching out to help local companies solve some of their most pressing logistical challenges."

 

Highlighting their friendly work culture and talented international workforce, Dorabot hopes to attract employees from Adam's alma mater, QUT, as well as other top-tier engineering schools. 

 

"Our decision to open an R&D center in Brisbane was largely motivated by our goal to recruit more top-notch technical talent," says Spencer Deng, Dorabot's CEO. "Australian universities have world-class robotics programs, and we're excited to offer job opportunities to Australian students both at home and abroad."

 

 

Mirroring their Shenzhen headquarters, Dorabot's Aussie team will work out of a brand-new 700 m² warehouse (pictured above) in the Brisbane suburb of Tingalpa, offering employees plenty of space to develop and test all kinds of robotic solutions, including loading, sorting, transportation, and induction systems for express delivery facilities. Dorabot plans to export this office model to other locations in the future, including the United States and additional locations in Mainland China.

 

The company is actively recruiting robotics software engineers and an HR administrator to support the newly established Brisbane team. For applicants seeking opportunities in mainland China, the company also welcomes applications for job openings at their Shenzhen headquarters.

 

To celebrate the occasion, Dorabot will be holding a launch party at Fishburners Brisbane Coworking Space on November 9th. Dorabot will also be visiting various Aussie universities to meet with job-seeking students.
