We are seeking seasoned software engineering professionals to join our team to build the first software defined end-to-end, automated fulfillment system. Be a leader as the materials handling industry transforms from mechanical to robotic and software-defined. This is a rare opportunity to get in early and help as we hone our final designs and create our first prototype.

About Us

HDS offers consumers a single online store to shop for fresh foods and general merchandise from the world's leading retail brands. In HDS fulfillment centers, multi-retailer orders are assembled as one lot, packaged in reusable totes and delivered via HDS vans to customers' homes at their convenience.

Our centers integrate intelligent vision, mobile robots and articulated robots in a way that dramatically advances supply chain capabilities while significantly reducing labor and fulfillment costs.

HDS is led by a top-tier team with an impressive track record and backed by prominent investors (see HDSGlobal.com) and industry leaders (see our recent partnerships with Ingram Micro and Toyota).
