At Ekso Bionics, we develop a range of robotic devices for both medical and industrial use. Founded in 2005, Ekso is widely recognized as a pioneer and market leader in the design, development, and commercialization of human exoskeletons. Our innovative products help to improve the lives of people every day – from individuals recovering from a stroke or brain injury to able-bodied industrial workers trying to do their everyday job free of fatigue, pain, and injury.
In our Health division, we sell advanced clinical robotics for use in rehabilitation from neurological injuries and other chronic conditions. Our lower extremity exoskeletons, currently led by EksoNR, have helped thousands of patients take over 130 million Ekso-aided steps and have inspired an entirely new way to treat these patients.
Ekso is looking for great engineers who are passionate about exoskeletons and robotics to help us build great products that help people live better lives.
Ekso provides excellent benefits and competitive salaries commensurate with qualifications and experience.
