Tackle the fast growing e-waste problem by making electronics manufacturing circular. 

Molg builds robotics microfactories and software to autonomously assemble and disassemble complex electronic products like laptop PCs, servers, and battery packs. Working with some of the leading computer + server manufacturers as well as industrial companies like Stanley Black and Decker, we are building the circular manufacturing technology to recover existing in-market devices for reuse and recycling as well as helping develop the next generation of circular-focused devices at the design level. 


Have a great opportunity to get practical hands-on experience working in a robotics and climate-focused company. This role is for an individual that is available to work in the evening, typically from 6pm - 10pm and can be on-site at our facility in Chantilly, VA.  Working with a talented cross-functional team of software, mechanical, electrical, and robotics engineers, you will be running, supervising, and documenting tests on our core technologies in robotics, computer vision, and microfactories. As a Robot Tester, you will be responsible for:

  • Running, supervising, and documenting tests run on Molg’s Microfactories across various automated demanufacturing processes.

  • Collecting data on process success, failures, and key areas of improvement.

  • Resetting systems and equipment. 

  • Collaborating with robotics engineers on developing better tests and systems.

  • Releasing features and improvements into production environments.


  • Passionate and curious about robotics and manufacturing 

  • Detailed oriented and methodical in data collection and analysis

  • Ability to communicate effectively and efficiently both verbally and in writing

  • Consistent and reliable 


We spend our days building robotic systems, developing complex assembly intelligence software, and designing the next generation of circular products for our customers. Given the importance of working hands-on with physical systems, we are a 100% in-person team collaboratively working in our industrial space in Chantilly, VA, down the road from the largest data center market in the world.  Our facility includes a variety of robots, CNC milling machines, 3D printers, and all the tools needed to build and test our products. It is important to us that anyone on our team that is interested in learning how to use our various pieces of equipment and machinery is taught and can gain the skills and appreciation for making physical things.   

While we are primarily funded by our work with Fortune 100 companies, we are also supported by amazing backers like Elemental Excelerator, Closed Loop Partners, and Techstars. 


  • We’re a small collaborative team with big ambitions, and there’s a good amount of context-switching. We expect people to be autonomous and drive their own work to completion.

  • We are a profitable business that is primarily funded from customer revenue, which means we are scrappy and looking to build a great sustainable company for years to come.

  • As a growing company and startup, priorities may shift as customer or business requirements change. We strive to empower individuals with context and decision-making power to meet this need. 

  • This work will be conducted exclusively on weekday evenings, typically ranging from 6pm - 10pm. There is flexibility as long as you are available to work at least 3 days a week.
