An Insider's view of AMP Robotics

What are some social events your company does?

Bringing our team together during Covid has been so easy because everyone genuinely cares about staying connected. We've hosted a socially-distanced trivia night in our parking lot with a drive-in sized projector screen, and have even run a few of our own cooking shows where people followed along from home and learned a recipe through video.

Russ

Office and Human Resources Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Supporting remote systems in unforgiving environments across the world is hard work. It requires foresight from the initial stages of a project and a tight, honest feedback loop. I'm proud to be in a group focused on creative and proactive service solutions for our customers to increase the profitability of recycling. It's exciting work!

Chase

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've always wanted to contribute to something sustainable that I believed in and could be proud of. Working at AMP is a dream not only because I can see the immediate impact of my contribution but because it is a group of hard working, passionate, and lively people I love working with.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Innovation can come from any level. I try to provide the 30,000 ft view of the problem to solve and why it is important to the company's direction and success. I find this enables team members to look beyond the next steps and start to craft creative holistic solutions pairing perspectives to achieve innovative and creative solutions.

Mark

VP of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

Recognize you have a lot to offer, yet also a lot to potentially learn—and be open to how and from who you learn, as well as how and who you can teach. Leading with respect for everyone’s different perspectives opens up so many ways we can unify them for the benefit of ourselves, our teams, and the customers we serve.
