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!
