We are leading the collaborative robot (“cobot”) space, having captured 60% market share in less than ten years. We’re not like the traditional robot companies, which is a good thing.

Universal Robots is a great place to work with an exciting company culture, passionate employees and a supportive management team, all poised for continued growth. Our product is taking the industry by storm, receiving several industry awards.


Our growth strategy includes a strong focus on services going forward, and the Trainer plays a significant role. The UR Academy’s In-Person, E-Learning, and Simulator-based Trainings enable users to quickly and easily program our cobots – and start seeing immediate benefits of automation.
