Mission

At Formic, we want to increase the collective output of humanity - without creating drudgery for the worlds' workforce.

We want "building things" to become trivial and easy. Every factory should have access to unlimited "labor" through robotics and automation. We are building technology, financing, operations and services so that robotics are fast and easy to deploy.

Formic is an early stage startup with $5m+ in funding from Silicon Valley's top VCs, and we are looking for the first 10-20 employees to join the team.
