The Internship Position
Near Earth Autonomy is looking for passionate interns to help develop autonomy systems for aerial vehicles. As an intern, you will work side by side with our engineering teams on the latest technology. Prepare systems for flight, run tests, analyze data, and present results. Design and develop software or electromechanical systems that will be used on an autonomous vehicle. Come out to our test airport in Pittsburgh to see your work take flight!
Candidates should be undergraduate or graduate students in Robotics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, or related fields. Our philosophy is to get you real-world experience with sufficient time to take on a task and see it through to real results. Therefore we prefer extended internships of five months or longer, in which you work 20-40 hours per week. If you are in Pittsburgh, you may work with us while continuing your studies.
At Near Earth Autonomy, we are building the future of flight by creating autonomy systems that enable aerial vehicles to fly themselves safely and efficiently. When you join our company, you will get a spot on a team with the best minds in robotics and aerospace working to solve some of the hardest problems in the industry. You will write algorithms to keep aircraft safe by detecting wires hundreds of feet away, implement programs that map the world by processing hundreds of thousands of lidar data points per second, design sensor enclosures that can withstand the vibrations of helicopter blades spinning at 400 rpm, and participate in flight tests to watch your technology in action. You will collaborate with mentors and teammates who are happy to share their expertise and help you grow professionally.
Here, you will find the reputation of a well-established company combined with the meritocratic structure, dynamic culture, and personal ownership of a start-up. You will be able to discuss the company strategy with our CEO over tacos, talk shop with our CTO on a walk through the 640-acre park next to our office, share your cooking skills with your colleagues in the annual chili cook-off, and wear the company uniform playing on our soccer and rowing teams.
We are looking for women and men who want to revolutionize aerial delivery, transport, and inspection. If you are up for the challenge, please submit your application, come on board, and let your passion take flight.
