Coco - Robotics Engineer Internship
Coco (formerly Cyanbot) is building the world's first mass market robotics company, beginning with sidewalk delivery robots. We deploy mobile ground robots in cities to create a cleaner, safer, and more accessible last-mile logistics solution.
You're an experienced roboticist, whether that be from personal projects or prior internships. You have a strong understanding of ROS; you know your way around a terminal; and you're comfortable picking up a new sensor and wiring it up to a board. You're passionate about working with physical hardware, but most importantly, you've had plenty of experience working with electronics and writing software.
As a robotics engineer intern at Coco, you will gain a ton of experience working on physical robots and making a large impact on our daily operations. This role is composed of two main functions: software and embedded electronics. You will write software that runs on the robots to accomplish a wide array of tasks such as: collision avoidance, hardware diagnostics, event logging, and data processing. You will also work directly on the hardware to improve sensor reliability and troubleshoot electrical issues. There is a strong emphasis on prior hands-on experience for this role.
