Argo AI was founded to tackle one of the most challenging applications in computer science, robotics and artificial intelligence with self-driving vehicles. Argo AI is developing and deploying the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision to help build safe and efficient self-driving vehicles that enable these transformations and more. The challenges are significant, but we are a team that believes in tackling hard, meaningful problems to improve the world.
We are building a high-performance team that is excited by complex engineering challenges and is passionate about making transportation safer, more affordable and accessible for all.
We view internships as an incredibly valuable part of our culture and of our recruiting pipeline. It’s our opportunity to see you in action in a way that is far more informative than an interview. For you, it is an opportunity to demonstrate your skills and character in a real world setting. Moreover, it is an opportunity for personal and professional development while learning something new and contributing to Argo AI’s effort to change the world!
Every intern will be paired with a senior member of our staff who will provide guidance and mentorship for the duration of the internship. Interns are considered contributing members of our project teams and participate in project meetings.
What you’ll do:
Lidar-based sensing drives many of the technical approaches to challenges for L4 self-driving vehicles, and forms a key part of our autonomy stack. Self-driving cars can use Lidar data for localization, obstacle detection, and detecting actors in the environment. We develop solutions to a variety of challenging problems using Lidar sensing onboard the AVs. Join us for a unique 12-14 week paid internship that offers personal and professional development, a fun work environment, and community-building. This internship program will give you an opportunity to work on high performing Lidar systems and their integration into a complex robotic system. All of these require research, awareness, interactivity, and the ability to ask the right questions.
What we’re looking for:
- Must be enrolled in a full time degree program at the time of the internship
- Students pursuing a degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field
- Familiar with modern C++
- Familiar with segmentation, obstacle detection, and related 3D data processing problems
- Familiar with machine learning approaches including both classical and deep learning approaches
- Passion for solving challenging, impactful problems
- A record of owning projects successfully and working in a fast paced environment
At Argo AI, we have a strong emphasis on creating a highly effective team environment. Thus, we seek candidates that can work effectively with others across a broad range of disciplines.
Argo AI is an equal opportunity employer that believes in diversity as a strength and is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
We know it takes competitive benefits to fuel a team that works hard and enjoys the challenge. At Argo AI, you can expect stellar perks to support your best self:
- Competitive compensation packages
- Free onsite or adjacent parking
- Daily catered lunches and snacks
- Commuter reimbursement
