Semio is a Los Angeles-based software startup defining the way in which people will live, work, and play with robots in their everyday lives. Our software enables robot developers to rapidly create and deploy robot apps, and allows robot end-users to easily access and use those robot apps via natural communication, including both speech and body language. We’ve been developing and deploying our software for years, we’ve received tons of feedback from paying customers, and we’re now onboarding our first full-time employees to join us in our mission of enabling personal robots in every home and workplace. Join us!

  • We’re building frontier technologies — from browser-based voice and animation design tools to natural language processing and computer vision infrastructure, we are at the forefront of some of the coolest and most innovative tech in the world
  • We’re 100% software-focused — we provide the AI software mind for robot hardware bodies
  • We’re working with large, enterprise customers — our customers are the biggest tech leaders of today developing the personal robots of tomorrow
  • We’re supported by sales revenue from customers — utilizing Lean startup methods and a strong go-to-market strategy, we bootstrapped the company from the ground up


We’re hiring full stack, front-end, and back-end software engineers in full-time capacities to help expand our browser-based design tools for writing, animating, simulating, and deploying socially interactive apps for personal robots. Our design tools are already in the hands of satisfied customers — with your help, we’ll make their experience even better!

  • You’ll be one of the first employees — help shape the culture of the company and the industry as a whole
  • You’ll work on software that already has users — your contributions will immediately influence the direction of robot app development with industry leaders
  • You’ll work closely with users to identify and implement new features — human-centered design is at our core to deliver the best user experience
  • You’ll boldly go where no one has gone before — the personal robotics industry is a new and untrod frontier, so we promote a work environment in which to rapidly explore brave new ideas and test experimental hypotheses to pave an evidence-based path to success


Semio is based in sunny Los Angeles, California, USA, and operates out of a large beach house in Venice Beach! We explored other cities to find the best fit for the business, and ultimately arrived at LA based on opportunities and costs. Do you want a Bay Area or NYC work/life experience, but don’t want to pay their prices? Then LA is right for you!

  • LA is a hub of technology — as part of Silicon Beach, LA is one of the largest tech centers in the world, rivaling both Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley
  • LA is a hub of diversity — our community is a melting pot of people, culture, and ideas, and this rich immersion helps us build a more equitable and sustainable future for robotics and AI
  • LA is a hub of fun and sun — from the beautiful beaches of Venice and Santa Monica to the entertainment of Hollywood and Disneyland to the art, fashion, and nightlife of Downtown, there are plenty of ways to unwind… and the weather is perfect year-round!
