At iRobot, our mission is to empower people to do more by building the world's most thoughtful robotics and intelligent home innovations. By interning with the Design Assurance Program Test team, you will have hand in developing new technologies, improving the efficiency in how we test our new and existing products and creating better test reports through automated scripts leveraging data science. While collaborating with Program, Electrical, Mechanical, Software, and Systems teams, you will grow interdisciplinary engineering skillsets that will help you excel into a dynamic engineering career. Our team consists of a wide degree of competencies and technical backgrounds, where everyone is an integral part of our systems solutions.

As a part of our team, you will work under the guidance of a mentor who is experienced in your pursued degree to plan, design, develop and support new and existing robotic platforms.

This is a full-time internship (40hrs; M-F) from May 2023 through the end of August 2023 in our Bedford, MA office. Students must be within a commutable distance to the Bedford, MA office.

Because systems testing requires interdisciplinary engineering, what you do is dependent on where you want to grow!
