Hi,

We have two Summer / Fall 2018 internship positions at iRobot's Technology
Organization. If you are interested, please contact me at my email address
attaching your resume at the bottom of this page. Please find the job
details below.

*Robotics Software Intern*
The candidate will be working in the Technology Organization (R&D) at
iRobot on problems related to mapping and navigation for next generation
mobile robot platforms. The candidate will develop code in C++/Python (most
of the time) to address critical issues and add new features related to
iRobot's proprietary SLAM system, learn more about iRobot's SLAM system and
do research in unexplored areas related to mapping and navigation. Apart
from this, the candidate will also be involved in managing robots for
testing.

*Areas of interest include:*
