International Business Development Executive
Starting May 2019
Machines with Vision Ltd (MWV) is an exciting engineering/AI product company focused on developing localisation-as-a-service for use on railways, self-driving cars and mobile robotics.
Based in Edinburgh, UK, the company has over the last 3 years developed its key technology from proof-of-concepts and prototypes, and is now looking to develop commercial products from this. The company is consequently expanding, based on funding from client projects, innovation awards and an investment round.
As part of this growth the company is seeking to fill a full-time international business development role. This person will work alongside the CEO in developing and executing the company’s commercial strategy.
Ideally this would suit an experienced, enthusiastic and pragmatic individual. There is still a predominate start-up culture in the company, so it would suit someone very much a self-starter and autonomous in their own right. There will be many open challenges and problems to overcome, but the potential opportunities and satisfaction are equally proportionate to these.
