Again

Robotics Engineer

Funded & backed by the biggest brands, we're a london start-up building autonomous systems that will rid the world of waste.

Introduction to Again 🌎 🔂

Our mission is to shift billions of units of packaging from disposable to reusable. Again is building a distributed network of 100's of autonomous cleaning facilities, called CleanCells, each processing and cleaning packaging for reuse by the world's largest FMCG brands.
