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!
Design, build, develop and verify new product test fixtures utilizing
inter-competency system level thinking (Mechanical/Electrical Design,
Controls, Data Collection & Analysis)
Support the development of advanced technologies, from their infancy to
Test and debug of prototype robotic systems composed of wireless
communication systems, sensors, computation modules, mobility, and
power/energy storage subsystems
Participate in prototype integration, verification, and validation,
including system functional, performance and environmental testing.
