The top line

As a proven product leader you will be critical in ensuring Slamcore meets our ambitious aims to be the leading provider of spatial intelligence software for robots and machines.

You’ll be responsible for building a deep understanding of our customer’s needs in the autonomous robotics and real-time location service (RTLS) markets.

You’ll engage with highly technical customers around the world, taking customer inputs that will develop into prioritised and actionable insights for technical teams.

With communication at the heart of what you do, you’ll work closely with partners, customers and engineers to ensure needs and requirements are met across the board. As a forward thinker, you’ll be constantly evaluating company objectives and ensuring that the product roadmaps are optimised to help us achieve them.
