Infinite Food achieves venture-scale food retail through automation. We design, manufacture, deploy, own and operate a network of autonomous food service locations with mature (8 years) deep tech R&D now transitioning out of stealth for go-to-market. Our aggressive timeline sees our new San Diego joint R&D and US go-to-market manufacturing facility online 1Q 2024. In impact terms our systems reduce spoilage, single use plastics, vehicles on the road and enhance the availability of fresh food, and we thereby seek to be a net contributor to positive social and environmental outcomes.
We are an engineer-managed venture committed to internal manufacturing to keep design honest and fabrication in the loop. We innovate across mechanical, electrical, electronic, industrial manufacturing/process engineering, software and logistics including UAVs. We are looking for experienced cross-disciplinary engineers and fabricators who enjoy solving difficult problems and want to work in a rapid iteration environment. Ideas are prototyped within hours, not weeks, and we have a very mature high speed international supply chain providing superior turnaround for R&D.
If we are not the best R&D environment you've worked at as an engineer, we pledge to improve. In-house processes supporting you will include paperless two-click™ purchase orders, autonomous inventory storage and retrieval, autonomous picking, autonomous sheet metal processing, autonomous welding, 3-5 axis autonomous milling, prospective polymer processing, a culture of version control, and a full featured on-site electronics lab.
Rough project complexity: ~10K parts BOM + 20 human days labor per assembly. Current challenge: Automate build time 40× (good progress).
