Deployment Project Manager (EU)

EUR 60.000 - 80.000


Our mission is to build the Covariant Brain, a universal AI to give robots the ability to see, reason, and act on the world around them. Bringing AI from research in the lab to the infinite variability and constant change of our customer’s real-world operations requires new ideas, approaches, and techniques.

Success in the real world requires a team that represents that world: diversity of backgrounds, points of view, and experiences. Our common denominator: ambitious expectations, love of learning, empathy for those around us, and a team-first mindset.


The Deployment Project Manager is ultimately responsible for our team delivering a customer deployment as seamlessly and with as much learning captured as possible. This role is key to our ability to deliver reliably to customer sites over and over again.

At a high level, a DPM manages the execution of FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) in the factory, shipping, installation, and execution of Ramp to Production onsite. The DPM provides timelines, plans, and milestones to CS for the customer-facing meetings. The DPM will be a part of the customer-facing meetings to provide a deeper level of detail where CS cannot. The DPM also provides feedback on post-sales requirements and workflow design.

Your Deployment team is at the heart of Covariant’s growth. As we set up and test new robotic deployments, the team is our first set of hands on the robots and the keyboard, making sure everything is configured correctly, from hardware to networks to software. As we execute on pilots, they are intimately familiar with how the hardware and software pieces of our product interact. At Covariant we celebrate having a diverse workforce of professionals from different walks of life and backgrounds. The team consists of Robotics Engineers, Hardware Engineers, and Software Engineers. It is your job to lead this team and to be invested in the success of the next deployment as it is in the long-term scalable improvements that continuously enable us to deliver for future customers.
