Working at Dexory

Meet the Dexory Team: Head of Autonomy

How has the company changed since you started?

I started in 2021 when we were a team of under 15 people. At the time the company was still named BotsAndUs and we had a cool robot, “Mim”, deployed at a single retail place in Germany. A few months later, we pivoted to stock monitoring in warehouses.

Now we are a scale-up with more than 100 great team members, a much taller (12.5m!) robot and an advanced platform. We are soon to be deployed in 4 countries including the US. So I can say: a lot has changed!

What hasn't changed are the core values of the company and the ambition to create something huge, even if complex. In my opinion, it’s been the key to embracing the fast-paced changes. The pace and ambitious changes make it feel as if we are a different company every 2 months, but we kept our core values intact, which has massively helped take the whole team on that journey.

Why did you choose to work for Dexory?

Again, the team was small when I joined in 2021, but in my early conversations with the founders, I was convinced of the potential and focus to disrupt the logistics industry. I wanted to be a part of this team and scale it to success. To this day, I believe I’ve made the right choice: we are on the path to disrupting warehouse operations. And still, it merely feels like the beginning. We are the only platform to provide an autonomous robotics solution to gather real-time data in warehouses and there is still so much to achieve and new projects to take on! It remains as exciting as the early days, when we launched our new autonomous robot platform in January 2023.

What advice would you give to someone considering a career at Dexory?

We are scaling quite rapidly, which comes with a certain pace and workload to make it all happen. Regardless, it is a great place to work and lead new designs and development from the start. You need to be ready to fail, which is fine, if you do it fast. If you embrace this attitude, you'll have a truly unique opportunity to grow yourself and the company. A fantastic company I may add.

What's the most interesting or unusual job you've ever had before joining this organisation?

I was a scuba diving instructor. The waters can be quite unpredictable like a day at a scale-up actually, but the overall job itself wasn't that fast-paced.

If your workspace could be anywhere in the world, where would you choose and why?

On a boat on the ocean. Possibly often close to Oceania.
