Moss, Norway

CNC Programmer and Operation Specialist

Targeted start date: Immediately. Relocation provided.

We are on the lookout for a self-driven CNC Programmer and Operation Specialist to join our team at 1X Technologies AS. Imagine being the person who starts up our brand new prototyping workshop. Your job is not going to be just to program the various CNC machines, but also to contribute to establishing the infrastructure of our internal machine park. This park will be used as an asset to continuously experiment with new products and to optimise the various designs for manufacturing. Picture yourself as a pivotal person in this venture, leading the way in turning engineering designs concepts into reality often within a single day.

Your in-depth expertise in 5-axis programming for mill/turn machines, proficiency with HCL CAMWorks, and hands-on experience with DMG Mori machines like the NTX and DMU series, will be your main asset to succeed in this job. In addition, machine simulation and collision detection are going to be the tools you will leverage daily, ensuring the transition from concept to reality is both swift and smooth.

If you harbor a passion for technology, data, and spearheading the future advancements in the robotics industry, this is your golden opportunity to leave a big mark in history!

1X's mission is to create an abundant supply of physical labor through safe, intelligent androids that work alongside humans. Since 2014, we’ve designed our products with large-scale manufacturing in mind, so we can produce androids at a high enough volume to meet the world’s labor demand.
Our wheeled Android EVE, is engineered to work with you, from guarding to logistics, and our bipedal model, NEO, is designed to become a household android with broad deployment in various applications. Our products will understand both natural language and physical space, so they can complete useful tasks in any environment.

We’ve established our dual HQ in San Francisco and Norway. Our positions require in-person presence to ensure effective execution and seamless collaboration in our hardware-focused environment. We value passion for our work and encourage candidates who share our dedication to join our team.
