Robotics Innovators Seek Tech Talent to Live and Work in Pittsburgh

SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) October 27, 2020

To expand the Steel City's world-class robotics and engineering expertise, One America Works, an organization that bridges the divide between high-growth Silicon Valley companies and emerging tech hubs across the U.S., is holding its second Pittsburgh-based virtual recruitment event on November 13th, convening more than a dozen of the top robotics startups and companies to help fill more than 100 available jobs. With high quality technical and business positions available, this recruiting event will attract both local talent as well as talent looking to relocate from high cost cities like San Francisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Boston and New York City to work in an emerging tech hub with lower cost of living, higher quality of life and lots of professional opportunity.

What: Virtual Recruiting Event for Pittsburgh-Based Robotics Positions

When: November 13th from 11 am - 4 pm ET

Participants will be assigned a specific time slot to meet companies one-on-one.

Where: Register at by November 8th

"As we continue to see tech workers move away from costly, congested cities in favor of mid-sized cities, Pittsburgh has become a key region for anyone relocating, thanks to its thriving tech industry culture, quality of life and cost of living," said Patrick McKenna, founder of One America Works. "The city has honed its specialty within the highly skilled robotics industry with both Big Tech and startups committing to the Steel City, in collaboration with the local talent and research resources available through the top-tier universities."

Founded by Patrick McKenna - an entrepreneur and investor with experience co-founding, operating and investing in several highly successful technology companies - One America Works is bridging the divide in America by spearheading connections between high-growth companies looking to expand and emerging regions across the U.S. that provide high-quality talent and investment opportunities. And this concept is gaining momentum as it creates hundreds of jobs in emerging hubs around the country. Through a successful 2019 pilot program in Pittsburgh, One America Works is responsible for creating over 250 jobs and filling nearly 80 positions over the course of six months. The 501c3 non-profit is leveraging a grant from RK Mellon Foundation to expand into new emerging tech cities this year. To showcase well-paying innovation jobs in the Steel City and across the Heartland, One America Works has hosted a series of popular virtual recruitment events across America this year in Columbus, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh.

"Over the last decade, Pittsburgh has seen a revitalization, due in part to the success of the local tech scene in the region. The city has been able to reinvent itself as an emerging tech hub while still remaining an affordable and vibrant area," said Joel Reed, Executive Director, Pittsburgh Robotics Network. "There are many exciting, innovative robotics companies that have come as a result of the local talent and research resources that make this city such an amazing place to live, play and work."

Employers attending the fair to hire for Pittsburgh-based robotics talent include IAM Robotics, Honeywell, Locomation, NREC, Qinetiq, Agility Robotics, RE2 Robotics, Near Earth Autonomy, CapSen Robotics, ESTAT Actuation, Komodo Analytics, SKA, Neya Systems, Bloomfield Robotics and more.
