Our Values

1. Commitment to Open Source

PickNik was built on open source software and understands how important it is to give back to the community. Each employee has dedicated time set aside to work on exciting robotics open source projects.

PickNik is a team of software experts and robotics PhDs who share knowledge and learn from each other. Through frequent company wide learning events, team members can share their unique technical experience and viewpoints so everyone can broaden their understanding.

From working with other talented people on small teams to getting support across the worldwide robotics community, PickNik thrives off collaboration.

PickNik emphasizes work life balance with a generous vacation policy and strongly biasing meetings to Tuesdays and Thursdays. This ensures every team member has dedicated focus time and flexibility in their work schedule.

The PickNik team is truly international, with employees working from various locations across North American and European timezones. As long as they have a good remote setup, team members can work from anywhere.

We Love Working at PickNik

Great company culture! Everything is transparent and it's really easy to talk to everybody in the company. As a junior engineer, this is a great plus for me since I don't have to think twice to ask for help!
