Introduction

iRobot: THE COMPANY BEHIND THE BRAND & THE PRODUCTS

Headquartered in Bedford, Massachusetts iRobot designs and builds innovative robots that make a difference in peoples lives. The company was established in 1990 by three Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumni and began with a vision of robots beyond academia and industry involving practical applications that would change the world. The original business plan involving space exploration by robots was well underway when the company began to win government and industry contracts and focus shifted. iRobot further diversified in 1997 when the first home robotic vacuum cleaner known as iRobot Roomba was developed.

iRobot has since successfully created a consumer home robot category that is changing the way consumers clean. Since then, more than 20M robots have been shipped. Beyond Roomba, other consumer products include Braava (robotic floor mopping). Today iRobot is a NASDAQ listed company (IRBT),1100 employees and revenues FY18 of $1.092B (+24%). iRobot is the Robotic Vacuum Cleaning leader and directs today ~50%+ of the category value in Europe. With an estimated global HH penetration in the single digits and fast growth, the front potential is immense.

iRobot has a unique culture and it is something which very much defines the business and how it operates. It is important that anyone considering joining the organization can embrace its values which are best encapsulated through the companys mission: deliver great products to the consumers, make money, have fun & change the world.
