Multi-Rotor Hardware Developer Internship

IHMC is seeking a hardware intern to assist with projects related to multi-drone teams. The role would involve design and development of multiple custom multi-rotor platforms.

The ideal candidate should be competent with multi-robot hardware and be capable of designing and assembling custom platforms and the associated electronics associated with multi-rotor propulsion, control and sensing. Additional skills that would be useful include: soldering, 3d modeling, 3d printing, working with carbon fiber, and a familiarity with ardupilot and betaflight. Also useful is an understanding of power and endurance calculations based on multi-rotor characteristics such as prop diameter, battery type, etc.

The candidate must work well within a team of developers. They should have good speaking and writing skills and be able to express complex ideas clearly and succinctly. The candidate should also be self-motivated, should be able to solve challenges without significant assistance, and should pro-actively seek to help the rest of the IHMC team reach their goals.
