Who we are:

Argo AI is in the business of building self-driving technology you can trust. With experienced leaders in the field and collaborative partnerships with some of the world’s largest automakers, we’re building self-driving technology that is engineered to scale globally and transform mobility for millions. 

Talented individuals join our team because they share our purpose to make it safe, easy, and enjoyable for everyone to get around cities. We aspire to impact key industries that move people and goods, from ride hailing to deliveries.

At Argo AI, 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. So join us* for a unique 12-14 week paid internship that offers personal and professional development, a fun work environment, and community-building!

*At this time, we expect to host our interns onsite at one of Argo AI's locations. However, if COVID-19 prevents us from doing so, internships will be conducted remotely. In the event our internship program is remote, interns will not be required to relocate and must reside in certain states for the duration of their internship. Additionally, remote interns will not receive housing or relocation assistance. Any changes will be communicated to successful candidates in advance of the start of the internship program.  Note: At this time, Argo AI is only able to support remote internships in the following states: CA, CT, DC, FL, GA, MA, MI, NC, NJ, NY, PA, TX, VA, WA.

Meet the team:

The Platform Test Engineering team is responsible for performing subsystem and system level testing that exercises the various components of the self-driving vehicle, focusing on the integration of Argo self-driving technology with OEM platform technology and offboard infrastructure. This includes developing and executing test plans focused on vehicle interfaces, vehicle dynamics, environmental qualification, onboard/offboard communications, sensor performance, and fault propagation and mitigation. We interact on a daily basis with our software and hardware development teams to test and provide feedback on their latest designs and ultimately qualify those designs for inclusion on our fleet of self-driving vehicles.

What you’ll do: 

  • Rapidly gain in-vehicle testing experience through hands-on training
  • Work with systems and test engineers to develop test plans that adequately evaluate system components against requirements spanning multiple generations of vehicle builds
  • Plan, coordinate, and execute tests on various hardware and software components and systems with an emphasis on safe, effective, and efficient testing
  • Collect, analyze and report test outcomes
  • Build tools spanning from Python based analytical tools to Matlab/Simulink based simulation

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or a related field.  Must be enrolled in a full time degree program at the time of the internship and for the semester following the internship (Fall 2021).
  • Experience and/or coursework in a relevant technical area (electrical engineering, software development, etc)
  • Excellent communication skills with the ability to span a large and varied workforce
  • Proven self-starter mindset and the ability to work independently or with minimal supervision
  • Understanding of basic functionality for robotics and/or autonomous systems

Nice to haves:

  • Software language skills such as C++ and Python; Windows and Linux OS; Matlab
  • Experience working in a testing environment

What we offer you:

  • Competitive compensation packages
  • Complimentary daily lunches, beverages, and snacks
  • Pre-tax commuter benefits
  • Employee assistance program
  • Company and team bonding outlets: employee resource groups, quarterly team activity stipend, and wellness initiatives

Our Background:

Argo AI was founded in late 2016 by industry experts with extensive experience building robotic systems for commercial applications. Our once-small team has since grown into an over 1,000-person strong company with strategic partnerships with two of the world’s leading automakers: Ford and Volkswagen. Our self-driving system is the first with commercial deployment plans for Europe and the U.S., and thanks to an ability to tap into both automakers’ global reach, our technology platform has the largest geographic deployment potential of any self-driving technology to date.

At Argo AI, we believe that embracing differences delivers superior results. We are an equal opportunity employer that is committed to an inclusive environment for all employees.
