About us 

Wandercraft provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age or disability.

After raising €40M at the end of 2021, the leader in walking robotics is starting a new phase of international growth.

Our goal: to restore the ability to stand and walk to people with reduced mobility. We are realizing the promise of robotics to offer ordinary lives to extraordinary people. To do this, we have created Atalante, the walking exoskeleton that enables paraplegic or hemiplegic people to walk again. Used for locomotor rehabilitation in hospitals, Atalante is the first exoskeleton in the world capable of generating its own balance, without its wearer having to stabilize himself with crutches. With it, every day, patients get up from a wheelchair and walk inFrance, in Europe and in the United States.

Building on the lessons learned from Atalante, we are developing a personal exoskeleton that will allow people to regain their autonomy at home, in the street, in their daily lives... With this personal version, Wandercraft aims to change millions of people's lives for the better.

This unique project is carried out by a team united around a mutual goal: improve the daily life of people with reduced mobility. We are working in a kind, fun and agile environment. Each member of the Wanderteam brings effervescence and passion to take this state-of-the-art medical robotics device to the next level.

From the very heart of Paris and New York, we are collaborating with the best university laboratories and leading medical teams, in Europe and in the USA. We have built a working environment that is motivating and rewarding on a personal and technical level.

We are looking for talents who are enthusiastic, passionate, creative but above all like-minded: abiding by the highest standards, honest and committed to everything you do. Expect to be challenged: we are creating things that nobody has ever done before. Expect to have to work hard and fast: we are testing and learning as we go. Expect to aim for perfection: after all, we are breaking ground with high technology exoskeletons.

Are you ready to push the limits?
