Smart Robotics offers picking automation as a service for production- and logistics processes all over the globe. We are an innovative world-leading company that enables customers to improve quality of work and scale their business.
Our innovative robots can help to overcome the ever growing labor shortages and scale up production by taking over repetitive and physically straining pick and place tasks. Thanks to our advanced AI software they improve accuracy and operational efficiency whilst safely cooperating with employees. Founded in 2015, Smart Robotics has grown from a small team of only four employees and one cobot, to a team of over 70 professionals and customers in over 15 countries.
Smart Robotics was founded on the first of May 2015, by Mark Menting and Heico Sandee. They opposed the status quo within the robotics industry and noticed there was a need for renewal. Most robot applications are created for a specific project and need custom programming, resulting in high costs per installation, low flexibility and limited functionality. However, in today’s society there is an ever increasing and varying consumer demand, which is why logistics- and production companies are in need of more flexible and innovative automation. Smart Robotics offers a solution.
Smart Robotics was founded with the idea to develop a software platform for robot picking applications, such that very advanced tasks can be executed by configuring a set of software building blocks. Reusing software allows us to create various robot applications for the automation of pick and place tasks and allows us to easily scale globally with our customers.
In 2015, Smart Robotics started at a small office at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven. Nowadays, we are situated in our head office in Best, in the middle of the high tech region Brainport. After our start, Smart Robotics was quickly noticed within the industry. Nowadays, you can find our intelligent robots in multiple countries and we have developed a strong distribution network within Europe and beyond.
At Smart Robotics we apply state-of-the-art technology within the field of robotics and create intelligent solutions that are applicable to many situations. We are challenged to always think out of the box and have a lot of freedom to develop technology and software most suitable for our customers.
Working at Smart Robotics means learning together! Me and my marketing team are challenged by marketing new products and we need to dive deep into our target audience to understand their needs and our value to deliver. Also, Smart Robotics’ international culture allows me to learn so much more than at any other job. In addition, there is a lot of freedom to take initiative. I am very happy to be here.
In my experience, Smart Robotics is a company tackling progressive challenges and creating innovative solutions. The fun thing about Smart Robotics is that we all work together to help our customers with a suitable solution. We are service-oriented to both our customers and our colleagues.

Here at Smart Robotics we have a great bond within teams. There is this family vibe that cannot be taken for granted. This allows for really enjoyable teamwork. Next to that are the technical challenges from the highest level in the robotics scene, which really boosts motivation.
I appreciate the freedom and responsibility as a developer at Smart Robotics. Our team determines its own planning and together we work on advanced solutions within the field of robotics, from motion control to vision. Colleagues are always ready to help and the work environment is great!
Smart Robotics is a great and dynamic place to work. There is room for initiative, growth and there are numerous learning possibilities. The continuously changing environment of a scale-up could be challenging. However, that is what motivates me and gives my job that extra ‘spice’.
