Universal Robots – Why Work For Us?

About Universal Robots

We believe that collaborative robotic technology can be used to benefit all aspects of task-based businesses – no matter what their size.

Our robot arms are advanced tools that can be used by all levels of production staff to help increase productivity, reduce injury and boost morale. With a Universal Robots robot arm, you can automate and streamline repetitive or potentially unsafe processes, so staff can be assigned to jobs that provide them with new challenges.

We believe that the latest collaborative robot technology should be available to all businesses. The nominal investment cost is quickly recovered as our robotic arms have an average payback period of just six months.

We’re dedicated to making the world a better place, one robot at a time.

We’re Universal Robots.

    I have been working at Universal Robots full-time (Less than a year)


    Everyone at Universal Robots has made me feel like family. The atmosphere everyday is friendly and you can tell everyone is willing to help. I have been employed at UR for about three months now and it feels like I have been here for years. The culture here is unlike any other company I have worked for.
    Being that this is a quickly growing company, it is fast paced and improving everyday. UR listens to its employees continuously tries to improve the company. I cannot comment on the Career Opportunities as I am fairly new but I can say that since we are growing so quickly I feel as though the opportunities are endless.


    It may sound like I am a spokesperson for UR but I honestly have nothing negative to say about this company.

    All expenses related to recruitment process (incl. flight tickets, hotel, taxi, etc.) were paid by Universal Robots.
