About the Job
Having 10’s of robots run around our offices is great, but having hundreds of robots running around inside our computers is even better. Rich simulation environments offer a wide range of benefits to many aspects of our business: fast research, development and validation, sharp marketing tools and strong customer experience / support.
We're looking for a Simulation Intern to create and run simulations that will help us optimize our robot fleets and system solutions. You will be responsible for leading edge simulation solutions ranging from initial concept development to analysis and optimization. You will be building material flow strategies (based on self-driving vehicles) for products already in our arsenal and ones that do not yet exist. Your goal is to develop accurate and robust simulations to evaluate design, lower risk, and enhance the elegance of our solutions to fuel our growth.
You will assist in the designing, reviewing and eventual testing while not forgetting troubleshooting of whatever we're building. You may be required to take robots for walks, and are able to cope with the questioning stares of onlookers.
Additional tasks may include:
You're excited about the role that robots will play in the future, and intrigued by the challenge of joining a young company in this high-growth market. You have skills and experience that you know can make a difference with the Clearpath team, whether we're looking for them or not. You are driven, view work as more than just a job, and are never satisfied with a project left half-done. You are motivated by making an impact on your workplace and you thrive on challenging and rewarding problems.
Most of all, you want to be on the right side during the coming robot revolution.
The ideal candidate will have:
