A bit about Yuman

We are a Copenhagen-based robotics startup developing mobile robots to assist nurses by moving equipment safely from A to B in the hospital wards. We have a strong network of hospitals in Denmark, and we are currently preparing our robots to be ready for running pilot tests.

Based on our research and observations, we found that nurses spend 1/3 of their day walking around the hospital corridors, transporting equipment. Our goal is to reduce the time they spend on these repetitive transport tasks and allow nurses to spend more time with their patients. And who is good at doing repetitive tasks? Mobile Robots!

Yuman was founded in February 2022, by Sara (CEO) and Andrei (CTO), two Computer Scientists from DTU. As a young company, we embrace change as a necessary part of our journey. We are always learning, are honest, always open to new ideas, and are guided by our core values:

  • Curiosity, we believe in doing things that have never been done before.

  • Quality & Simplicity, we strive for quality in everything we do.

  • Passion, we are passionate about our work and our mission and work together to achieve common goals.

This is us. We work hard, but we also have a lot of fun. We are a family, we support each other.

Main Responsibilities for the Role:

You will be responsible for developing and testing the mechanisms and systems necessary to enable our robots to move around autonomously and interact with the hospital wards. You will design in Solid Works, and work closely with our software and electrical engineers to create new robot prototypes and ensure they meet the safety and performance requirements.

We imagine that you:

  • Are passionate about robotics, and enthusiastic about bringing your designs from concept to completion.

  • Are pursuing a bachelor's or master's degree and have some experience in developing mechanical designs using Solid Works.

  • Will be offered a part-time position, where you get a monthly salary based on your experience.

  • Take pride in delivering high quality, meeting deadlines and following tasks through to completion.

  • Are a curious fast learner who works with a can-do attitude and requires limited supervision.

  • Are fluent in English, written and spoken.

  • Can start as soon as possible, no later than January 15, 2022.

We look forward to receiving your cover letter and CV and grades via this HUB job position (ONLY). Please append your grades to the CV.

We will review applications and conduct interviews on an ongoing basis, so don't wait to apply. If you do not meet some of the responsibilities but are excited about the job and think that you can contribute to our company, please do not hesitate to apply.

Working at

Yuman is an ambitious Copenhagen-based startup addressing one of the major challenges facing healthcare - the shortage of nurses. In June 2022, we have been selected as the TOP robotic startup in Europe. 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 mobile robots make more time and care for patients (TLC), directly improving nurses' conditions, and reducing stress and burnout.
