Scott N. Miller LinkedIn

CEO/Co-Founder

Scott has been fascinated with hardware since he was old enough to hold a screwdriver. He worked on a robotic tuna fish, life-size robotic dinosaurs for Disney Imagineering, and robotic baby dolls with Hasbro, before joining iRobot where he was responsible for leading the Roomba team to scale the functional prototype to high-volume production of the first three million units.

Scott received his Bachelor’s from Dartmouth and Master’s from MIT.
