At Acrylic, we’re on a mission to build the fine art creation tools of the future and make art accessible to all while making it easier for creators to earn a living. We leverage robotics and machine learning to enable visual artists to produce textured artwork made with real paint on canvas — at scale.

The TL;DR:

  • We’re a robotics startup based in Montreal, QC, recruiting for a full-time Technical Project & Production Manager starting in the summer.
  • This role is in-person.
  • The start date is flexible, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis (priority to early applicants).

Right now, we’re collaborating with internationally acclaimed artists, launching a partnership with Canada’s top online art marketplace, and working on putting Acrylic paintings in every home in Canada. Come join us as we continue to grow on this rocketship trajectory!
