Careers

We are engineers, sailors, citizen scientists, rugby enthusiasts, mothers, partners, and environmentalists. 

Our diverse culture keeps us healthy and fun-loving. We value flexible time off and life/work balance. Every day is for work and for play. Sound like you? Help us bring affordable aquatic data to solve the worlds big problems. 

We’re in Bristol, Rhode Island at the Herreshoff Blue Tech Innovation Center (HBTIC) and offer a blend of in-person and remote working opportunities.

Jaia Robotics is growing in order to meet an increasing demand for micro-sized autonomous vehicles for use in aquatic environments. Jaia Robotics has significant experience in autonomous marine vehicle design, production, payload integration, user support, marine operations and data analysis. We are always building our talent pipeline as we prepare for the next stage of business growth and are always available for an introductory conversation.

We’re creating culture that values working smarter, enabling you to do the best work you will ever do and have fun while doing it. Are you a rock star interested in the opportunity to design, test, and operate the JaiaBot system?
