About Caitlin

Caitlin is part of the marketing department here at Automata, heading up the content team as Senior Content and Creative Manager.

She absolutely loves an Oxford comma — and an em dash — (see what we did there), and is passionate about exploring the role AI and robotics will play in shaping the future.

Since graduating University of Birmingham with a Master of Arts in Creative Writing, Caitlin has written for multiple tech companies and publications.

Caitlin says the best part about working in the marketing team is…

The Marketing team works across almost all departments so it’s kind of like having our finger in every pie! We are incredibly collaborative, both internally and externally. Plus, we’re just the most fun and friendly team – not that we’re biased or anything..
