Reason #7 – Why You Should Work At Redfish Technology – “Top Producer Trips!”

Meredith Dean in Iceland, Ireland & Hungary. Leah O’Flynn on the Big Island, HI. Jon Piggins on Kauai, HI.

 

Since 2004, Redfish Technology has rewarded it’s top producing recruiter every year with all expenses paid trip which has included journeys to; Europe, Hawaii, Iceland, and Asia.  Redfish’s CEO Rob Reeves believes, “Our annual trip award is our way to say thank you for all of the time & hard work our people put in for our clients 12 months a year. The trip is awarded to our Top Producer AND a guest, who can be their spouse, close friend or kids…it’s our way to say thank you to those who have supported us and our people throughout the year as well.”

 

In their own words, Redfish Technology Top Producers on what it means to win the award:

 

Meredith Dean, Lead Recruiter: “Something that is important to me is being recognized for my hard work and achievements and Redfish’s Top Producer Award does just that. I love to travel internationally and our Top Producer Award has taken me to Hungary, Czech Republic, Iceland, Guatemala, and Ireland.”

 

Leah O’Flynn, Chief Revenue Officer: “In 2014 I won Top Producer and it was one of the highlights of my career for a few reasons. The main reason was that 2014 was my ‘A ha’ moment for recruiting. It took two years for me to really find my flow around technology, sales and strategy. It accumulated to me winning Top Producer – the secret was matching those skills with my work ethic. I look back now and it was more than a vacation because I took my childhood best friend and soon after we each got married and had kids. More than likely, it will be 10+ years before we can justify us running away together without family. I’m super thankful to Redfish for giving me these memories with Leah – yes, her name is Leah as well.”

 

Jon Piggins, Executive Recruiter: “Winning Top producer meant a lot to me because of all the hard work, help from my colleagues, late nights & weekends it took to make it happen. It was extra special because Redfish sent both of my daughters with me, which was such a nice way to let them see how hard work pays off & thank them for the sacrifices they made when I was putting in extra effort at work.”

10 Robotics Companies to Watch in 2020

10 Robotics Companies to Watch in 2020

By: Jon Piggins, Redfish Technology

 

Fear & apprehension have dominated the narrative around robotics for years (“Robophobia” is a clinically recognized anxiety disorder). Common concerns include the dangers & ethics regarding autonomous military machines, “job stealing” manufacturing robots, and machines that become sentient and turn on humans.

One things is for sure…Robotics applications (and associated technology; Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning/Deep Learning) are destined for ubiquity. Fortunately, there are plenty of companies working hard to leverage robotics to improve & enhance our lives…here are some of our favorite companies in the space who are doing some really cool stuff for our common good.

 

Canvas

“Pneubotics”? The inflatable robot of the movie “Big Hero 6” was based on real soft robotics research, like the kinds being experimented with at Canvas. We haven’t yet seen many inflatable robots, but they offer a number of advantages; they’re relatively inexpensive, adaptive, and they’re very easy to fix. Compared to traditional robots, they’re extraordinarily lightweight, and they pack down to a small fraction of their size once deflated. Despite their compactness, they can be strong and unexpectedly fast. Perhaps most important, they’re passively safe, since they don’t have much in the way of rigid components or the inertia that comes with them. See their robots in action HERE.

 

 

Roam

Roam is building the first commercial wearable robotic devices, called exoskeletons, to help people with mobility issues and improve how people play sports. The company’s first commercial device is a robotic exoskeleton designed to boost the skiing experience. The Elevate Ski XO is targeted toward diehard skiers who wish to ski longer and stronger while pushing the edges of what’s possible. The Elevate is also great for those who love skiing but are limited due to knee pain or muscle fatigue.

 

 

Piaggio Fast Foward

Founded in 2015 by the Piaggio Group, Piaggio Fast Forward creates lightweight, intelligent, and sustainable mobility solutions. Based in Boston, MA, the company is dedicated to helping people move better, further, faster, and more enjoyably. PFF products leverage state-of-the-art technology and design to promote more vibrant cities filled with pedestrians, cyclists, and skaters. PFF’s first product is “gita” a mobile-carrier that follows people on the go. Carrying up to 45 pounds, “gita” encourages an active lifestyle for anyone who wants to move with efficiency and ease, from millennials and parents to seniors and disabled individuals.

 

 

Dorabot

Dorabot, founded in 2014, develops automated warehouse solutions using cutting-edge AI and robotics, including computer vision, motion planning, mobility and deep learning, etc. Covering induction, sorting, transportation and loading, we provide end-to-end solutions for logistics, express, e-commerce, seaports, airports, manufacturing and other scenarios.

 

 

Sphero

Sphero invented a now world-famous app-enabled robotic ball, which is used in classrooms all over the world to teach through play. In addition to the original ball, other products include the Sphero 2.0 and the Sphero Mini as well as app-enabled racing robots named Ollie and Darkside. The company’s Sphero Edu app is a hub for programming its robots and more.

 

 

Diligent Robots

Diligent Robotics is an A.I. company creating robot assistants that empower service teams to focus on the work they care most about. They build the Artificial Intelligence that enables service robots to collaborate with people and adapt to dynamic human environments. With a founding team of social robotics experts, their robots feature mobile manipulation, social intelligence and human-guided learning capabilities. “Moxi” is their hospital robot assistant that helps clinical staff with non-patient-facing tasks, so staff have more time for patient care.

 

 

Picknik Robots

Picknik offers open source, customizable robotics solutions. Their wide array of services include motion planning, advanced inverse kinematics, real-time control, collision avoidance, custom ros integration, 2D navigation, virtual reality, robot modeling, workspace analysis machine learning and more.

 

 

Anybots

Short of being face-to-face, Anybots offers one of the most interactive forms of communication available today by providing the user a personal remote avatar that can be controlled through a simple browser-based interface, with intuitive controls allowing for a truly immersive experience. With Anybots you can instantly be immersed in a distant environment experiencing the forefront of a new class of communication called mobile telepresence, allowing you to never miss an important event, meeting, or experience again. Individuals who cannot make it to a distant location can use this robot to afford them an experience that is, geographically, out of reach, or those who are homebound could use Anybot’s robot to attend social gatherings, be they in or out-of-doors.

 

 

Makani Power

Makani is developing energy kites that use a wing tethered to a ground station to efficiently harness energy from the wind, generating electricity at utility-scale. As the kite flies autonomously in loops, rotors on the wing spin as the wind moves through them, generating electricity that is sent down the tether to the grid.

 

 

Sunfolding

Sunfolding designs and manufactures simpler solar trackers that fuel the future of smart solar and move our world forward. Sunfolding’s flagship product, the Sunfolding T29™ Single-Axis Tracker, features seriously simplified components. The Sunfolding T29 makes solar power plants easy to install and smarter to operate, with motor-free tracker rows and 95% fewer maintenance locations.
