Internships – Engineering /
We are an early stage startup headquartered in Palo Alto with offices in Toronto and Zurich. We were founded by a team of experts in imaging and veterans in the Silicon Valley startup ecosystem. We are revolutionizing manufacturing automation and are looking for people passionate about sensing and robotics to join in and help us build state of the art vision technologies for integration with robotic systems.

PLEASE NOTE: when applying for an internship role, please be sure the use the "Resume" upload field to not only upload your resume but to also upload your transcripts, or any other documents necessary.

Software/computer vision interns will be fully integrated in our software development cycles and contribute to the design, development, testing and documentation of new features for our ClearSight Deep Imaging System.
