RE2 Robotics achieves 50 percent hiring growth despite pandemic

RE2 Robotics, or “Resquared Robotics”, a developer of intelligent mobile manipulation systems, announced today that the Company has already reached its 2020 hiring goal of increasing its staff by 50 percent.

In particular, 83 percent of the new hires were engineers from a variety of disciplines, including mechanical, electrical, and software engineering.

In addition, the Company has added to its operations team with the hiring of a head of talent, director of IT, and accountant, and has augmented its production team with the addition of a CNC machinist and lab assistant.

As announced in January, RE2’s hiring push is a direct result of the company’s significant expansion into commercial markets, including the aviation, energy, and medical industries.

Throughout the remainder of the year, the Company will continue to hire additional engineering and production staff.

Amy Tisdale, head of talent, who also joined RE2 earlier this year, says: “RE2 has been extremely fortunate to continue our growth despite these challenging times.

“We had to quickly adapt to not only working remotely, but also recruiting, hiring, and onboarding our new employees remotely. The benefit of rapidly adapting was that we honed our recruiting and onboarding process and became a well-oiled hiring machine.

“We plan to use these best practices moving forward to ensure all new employees, whether remote or on-site, have a seamless experience.”

Jorgen Pedersen, president and CEO of RE2 Robotics, says: “As we entered 2020, our goal was to grow the Company in order to successfully execute on our robotics programs, exceed our customers’ expectations, and further develop our mobile manipulation product line.

“When the pandemic hit, our priority became to keep our employees safe while maintaining our customer commitments.

“We came together as a team, developed new remote work processes across the company, including recruiting and onboarding, and hired incredible talent throughout the company.

“I must commend the entire RE2 team for their agility and perseverance during this extremely difficult time. Not only did the team adapt, but we exceeded our 2020 hiring goal well before the end of the year.”
