Animatico AG is an AI spin-off from ETH Zurich with a great team of former ETH Zurich and The Walt Disney Company scientists. Animatico’s vision is to humanize human-machine interactions with animated voice-controlled avatars in the areas of food ordering, flight & hotel check-in, visitor management, and many more. Our charming avatars guide the users through these tasks while providing an intuitive, fast, accessible, entertaining, and hygienic experience. Machine learning, computer vision and computer graphics are at the basis of our avatar engine. Our young and motivated team is looking for an experienced software engineer, who will work closely with the core founder team on the avatar engine, in particular on the creation of tools (authoring platforms, SDK) for exposing the configuration functionalities of the engine to third parties and external services.
