Industrial Designer

Salary Competitive

Who we are

We are an ambitious deep-tech robotics startup based in Copenhagen. We are developing innovative mobile robots to assist nurses by automating transport tasks in hospital wards. We are on a mission to reduce nurse burnout and strengthen the healthcare system to continue to deliver world-class patient care.

Design in hospitals has always been neglected. We aim to be pioneers in introducing the first solution specifically designed for nurses, that nurses love and that makes patients feel at home. We are looking for an Industrial Designer to carry out engineering tasks with an emphasis on design.

As an Industrial Designer at Yuman, you will be responsible for designing the first ever design-driven mobile robot in hospitals. You will be leading the design process.

Your responsibilities

Your key responsibilities will be:

  • Creating a realistic and implementable 3D concept of a mobile robot to be used in hospital wards - by nurses.

  • Solving tasks individually and efficiently.

  • Creating different prototype versions, and high-fidelity visuals until the desired design is achieved.

  • Conducting user tests and iteratively incorporating the findings and improvements into the design.

  • Working cross-functionally with the Electrical, Mechanical and Software engineering teams.

Your Profile

  • Proficiency in Solid Works and 3D modelling.

  • Hands-on experience in industrial design and/or product development of real products.

  • Not afraid to take responsibility, be determined and work independently.

  • You like to get challenged and have the ability to work in a startup - where the environment is dynamic and agile.

What we offer

  • 24/7 access to 3D printing and laser cutting rapid prototyping facilities.

  • Being part of an international team where you work with fast iterations.

  • Our team is currently based at DTU Skylab in Lyngby. Thus, you will have access to the DTU startup ecosystem and facilities!

  • We would like you to become part of our little community and work together. However, we are open to flexible and remote working hours.

If this sounds interesting and you are up for the challenge, submit your application and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

Working at

Yuman is an ambitious Copenhagen-based startup addressing one of the major challenges facing healthcare - the shortage of nurses. Yuman has been recognised as the TOP robotics startup in Europe in 2022, and received the Best Startup of the Year Award by Odense Robotics in 2023. Our goal is to free up nurses from simple, but time-consuming tasks so they can focus on care tasks that require a personal touch. To achieve this, we are developing innovative mobile robots that assist nurses as their own "transport buddies" by automating the delivery of food, medicine and laundry in hospital wards. Our robots are currently operating in two Danish hospitals, assisting nurses around the clock.
