The ARM Institute Institute has created an easily searchable and highly usable website that contains information about educational resources located throughout the United States specific to robotics/AI/advanced technology roles in manufacturing. This website launched in April 2021 as www.roboticscareer.org. Through a grant from the Department of Labor (DoL), ARM Institute is currently adding job matching capabilities to this website. We are seeking a provider for the job listing (posting) information that will populate the site.
Per the guidelines from Federal funding, the ARM Institute is putting this data management project out for competitive bid. ARM Institute is requesting proposals for real-time job posting data. The information provided must be suitable for display in the www.roboticscareer.org website, which is specified in the project requirements section below.
Note that respondents must be a U.S. based organization with all data collection occurring in the United States.
To best protect and pursue our interests at home and abroad, the United States relies on a robust and innovative domestic manufacturing sector.
The ARM Institute is a Manufacturing Innovation Institute (MII) funded by the Office of the Secretary of Defense under Agreement Number W911NF-17-3-0004 and is part of the Manufacturing USA® network. The ARM Institute leverages a unique, robust, and diverse ecosystem of 330+ consortium members and partners across industry, academia, and government to make robotics, autonomy, and artificial intelligence more accessible to U.S. manufacturers large and small, train and empower the manufacturing workforce, strengthen our economy and global competitiveness, and elevate national security and resilience. Based in Pittsburgh, PA since 2017, the ARM Institute is leading the way to a future where people and robots work together to respond to our nation’s greatest challenges and to produce the world’s most desired products.
The ARM Institute’s RoboticsCareer.org resource connects education seekers and employers with training options for manufacturing careers working with robotics, AI, advanced technology roles. Each program listed on RoboticsCareer.org – and there are more than 14,500 programs listed – directly align with career pathways defined by the ARM Institute in collaboration with industry, government, and academia. The program’s listing clearly shows education seekers and employers which specific skills the program addresses.
ARM Institute is extending the functionality for www.roboticscareer.org website to include the posting and management of job openings specific to robotics in manufacturing that link to the appropriate ARM Institute-defined competencies and skills. Additionally, it will include the ability for the job seeker to create an online profile and apply to one or more job posting(s). The user will have the ability to identify competencies and skills that, in effect, provide a job matching capability.
ARM Institute is requesting proposals to incorporate job posting data (and accompanying taxonomies) into their publicly available career platform focused on manufacturing robotics-related occupations. ARM Institute seeks a data partner that can extend the platform through a robust job posting feed, coupled with skills tagging and adjacencies that reflect labor market data within selected occupations, geographies, and industries.
