Robotics Software Engineer

Why Shadow Robot?

Who better to answer this question than our Shadow employees? Here are some responses from an anonymous staff survey:

  • Create amazing robots and work on cutting-edge tech
  • Impressive clients and new challenges
  • Working for a company where my contribution matters
  • Working for an ethical company
  • To support and grow a great team of enthusiastic and skilled people
  • Company culture and colleagues who feel more like family
  • The opportunities to learn and grow


We have a strict “robots for good” policy. Sometimes, this involves us saying “no thank you” so that we can take a more positive stand. We screen each sale to ensure our tech responsibly used. Each proposal has the eyes of our Directors, and if we don’t like the idea, we won’t do it. Also, we don’t, and never will sell our robots for military use.


Diversity, Inclusion, and Equal Opportunities:

We hope one day we wouldn’t need to add this to our website because it would just be the norm all around. Until then, we’d like to state that we have a policy where we ensure that no one feels left out or indifferent because of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, or other factors such as social background.

We urge applicants NOT to attach or include their photo on CVs/ resumes. We also request that CVs/ resumes DO NOT include links to any personal social media accounts and website profiles where an image of you may be visible.


Sorry, we are currently at full capacity. However, we recognise that today’s interns are tomorrow’s superstars so if you’d like to register your interest below, please do.

Register Your Interest For a Job or an Internship:

If you can’t see a suitable job role or internship listed above and would like to register your interest, please email our HR Recruiter, Helen. Do make it clear if you’re after a job or internship and we encourage that in either case, you attach your CV/ resume (please remove any photos and links to places where a picture of you might be visible) and provide brief details around the type of role you’d like.

Note to Recruitment Agencies:

Shadow Robot does not accept unsolicited CVs from recruitment agencies. Any unsolicited CVs sent to us – that is to say, in any situation where we have not directly engaged your company, in writing, to supply candidates for a specific vacancy – will be considered by us to be a “free gift”. This will leave us liable for no fees whatsoever, should we choose to contact the candidate directly and/or engage the candidate’s services, and will in no way establish any prior claim by your company to representation of that candidate should the candidate’s details also be submitted by any other party.

Submission of any unsolicited CVs to us by your company will be deemed evidence of full and unlimited acceptance by your company of these terms, and agreement by your company that these terms are the totality of any commercial or contractual relationship whatsoever between our companies in respect of the candidate(s) whose unsolicited CVs were thus sent. You can email us at if you’d like to partner with us.
