We are a social impact organization with a non-profit status and a fully remote setup.
We are a social impact organization with a non-profit status. Established in December 2015, we have legal entities in the US (501C3) and Switzerland (public charity) and are currently exploring the set-up of our first legal entity in the geographies of our work. As talent is evenly distributed on our planet, our lean and global team works with a fully remote setup.

Our Organizational (Hi)Story
WeRobotics was funded in 2015 as a new collaboration between two existing initiatives by four Co-Founders. Read all about our history in this document.
Through a co-creation process, we revised our values in 2023 and decided to give a different meaning to WeRobotics, by linking a value to each letter of our organization's name and remind ourselves in all our interactions what we stand for.
