Robotics Internship at Maidbot in Austin, TX

Maidbot [https://maidbot.com/] is leading the way as a pioneer in revolutionizing commercial cleaning by leveraging the power of robotics and innovative automated solutions. This all starts with Rosie: an industrial housekeeping robot for commercial cleaning, which handles the dull, dirty, and dangerous tasks. With rising market demand and Maidbot’s first-mover status, we have partnered with several of the largest hospitality & commercial cleaning companies. Beginning in Austin, we’ve expanded into markets such as Houston, Dallas and Denver. After launching successful deployments with multiple hospitality companies where dozens of our robots work alongside hotel staff, we are developing new features and enhancing our current software, which ranges from a customer-facing web application to state-of-the-art electronics. In our Austin office you’ll find 3D printers, laser cutters, dogs, and an ever-growing army of robots.

As a Robotics Intern, will develop software for robotics, and work with a small team to develop software for our autonomous mobile robots. You will write software at multiple levels of abstraction: from low-level drivers and behaviors that interface directly with the sensors and actuators, all the way to task-level decision making and high-level control. Most importantly, you are passionate about playing a key role in the development of a revolutionary robot. *email for consideration: marilyn@maidbot.com *
