About us

Our first product is a robot for children with movement disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, and it allows kids to walk, in many cases, for the first time in their lives. The device is currently being used by hundreds of families and the best hospitals across North America.

About the job

We are a fast-growing startup and are looking for a highly motivated Customer Support Engineer. You will be a crucial member of the team, and a major point of contact between the team and its customers. Your role will involve fielding problems that arise with our customers' devices. The issues that come to us are often complex and challenging to solve. You will be on zoom calls with our B2B and B2C clients, get to the root of the problem, and walk customers through the solution. The customer feedback from your interactions goes directly towards improving the device, and the role sits at the unique intersection of product, engineering and customers. This is a unique opportunity to work at a fast-growing startup, while directly improving lives.

Trexo's work doesn’t stop with children. We are working towards building mobility solutions for all. At Trexo Robotics, you will find a flat organization where you can work with highly optimistic, low ego, and exceptionally talented individuals who look forward to solving hard problems.
