It’s a damn pitty you guys aren’t located in the netherlands! :wink:

Xan, we might be close to your home soon, stay tuned :wink:

The position is still available so don’t miss this opportunity. Calling all robot builders!

I am new to robots but have a good background in engineering, computers and electrical/electronics including radio control. I am looking to move over to Canada with my wife (she has dual nationality with uk/Canada) and this might be a perfect opportunity. Would my limited robot experience be an issue? I have always been into this environment and I believe this could ideal.
Many thanks

Xan: You would certainly be the perfect man for a job like this. :wink:

Btw, I didn’t know you can talk/write French?

French would be a problem… Maybe I could trade it for Dutch and a bit of German? :wink:

@Mario: Sound’s interesting. I’ll stay tuned :slight_smile:

English is the more critical of the two languages. Additional languages are certainly beneficial.

This current position has now been filled, but RobotShop is expanding rapidly, so if you want to become part of this amazing team, send us your resume.
