QA Engineer (f/m/d)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin, Hamburg

Our Mission

At Circus, headquartered in Hamburg with offices in Berlin and Munich, we are pioneering global developments in on-demand autonomous food production. Everything from meal creation, to kitchen management and operation – enabled by seamlessly integrated, cutting-edge robotics and transformative AI technology.

Our foundation rests in the extensive developments of groundbreaking robotics driven by artificial intelligence, previously the missing link in achieving true autonomous food automation. This is the moment for a new status quo: Just as autonomous driving will disrupt how we build cities, organize our days, and live our lives, so will we at Circus shift the current expectations around food.

Join us as we forge ahead, crafting a future where the art of cooking and the latest technologies converge to create a world that thinks differently about food than it has for thousands of years—a world where food means something new.
