ReadySight robot navigates rocks, rugs and all sorts of indoor and outdoor terrain.
Time takes time. I’ve heard that saying often, but have a new appreciation for it in recent weeks. I co-founded Company Six due to its important mission - keeping people with dangerous jobs and those they serve, safe. I, as much as anyone, want to get our rugged, low-cost robot out to our customers as soon as possible, to have their backs and to provide the situational awareness they need today.
Respect is one of the CO6 core values, and it takes many forms. Making a small and capable robot like ReadySight is very difficult - it requires optimizing for mobility, size, temperature and moisture, battery life, and a secure backend video platform. Our team is up to the challenge, but out of respect for first responders and others with dangerous jobs, we simply will not put a robot into their hands unless it meets our high criteria for reliability and performance.
We also respect the urgency facing those who are eagerly waiting for the services the ReadySight robot provides. We are thrilled to announce that our Special Insights Team (SIT) partners will begin beta testing the ReadySight robots in the coming weeks. For first responders, every day counts, every day brings a chance for circumstances where situational awareness could make a meaningful difference. We respect the urgent need that each and every one of our customers face, and want to meet that demand.
As my team and I face difficult decisions, we focus on the fundamentals, on our core values, and on how best to respect and honor our mission while maintaining the level of trust our customers bestow upon us. We take the time to earn our stakeholders’ respect and to deliver a product and program worthy of it. Thank you for your patience as each day the ReadySight robot takes one step closer to serving you, ensuring safety and awareness when you and your community need it most.
Company Six recognizes that we are only as strong and capable as are each individual on our team. We are lucky that so many of us have nearly a decade of experience working together, building and selling more than five million robots.
This month as we welcome a new member to the Company Six team, I have a chance to reflect on one of the Company Six core values, that of teamwork. People join our team to do their best work while also living their best life. In order to build a reliable robot for people with dangerous jobs, to provide a solution and safety to those who keep our communities safe, we need each team member to bring their full self to their role. That means fostering an environment where each team member can shine, collaborate, and innovate until we reach our collective goals.
I am excited to announce that Carie Lemack is joining Company Six as our Chief Operating Officer. She has experience growing innovative, impactful teams, as well as a passion for the safety and security sectors in the U.S. and abroad. Carie’s ability to distill messaging, grow ops teams, and do whatever is needed to succeed will help our team as we grow.
I and the entire Company Six team are thrilled to have Carie join us on our mission to provide the tools first responders and others with dangerous jobs need as they keep our communities safe. We have other openings - if you are someone who cares deeply about creating robots that help save lives, who is a team player and enjoys wearing many hats to achieve our goals, and finally who has a commitment to being part of a thoughtful, ethical and inclusive workplace, we invite you to apply.
