An Insider's view of Carbon Robotics

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Some companies allow dogs in the office, but I don't know another company that allows chickens, ducks, sheep, goats, and pigs in the office! I have a farm sanctuary and I'm encouraged to bring them along to say hi. It's fun and always good bonding. Chatting around the water cooler is nowhere as cool as chatting around the office piglet.
