Mark Schnittman
CTO & Co-Founder

Mark joined iRobot after completing his graduate studies in robotics.  It was there that he was steeped in the philosophy of practical robotics.  He later joined a seed-stage robotics company called Romotive where he began to learn the ropes of venture-backed startups.  In 2014, he pitched an idea for a new company to Max and together they started Owl Labs, maker of the Meeting Owl 360° automatic conference camera, honored as one of Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of 2020.  At Owl, Mark led the software team for the company's first 5 years and then went on to lead product strategy.
