Parallel Systems is an early-stage startup company developing the future of intermodal freight transportation. Our mission is to reduce transportation costs and make an impact on emissions and safety. We are developing the vehicles and software to create new autonomous and electric transportation systems for existing rail infrastructure. 

At Parallel Systems, we value the team as much as the mission. We want to collaborate with diverse people that are motivated, persistent, and take personal accountability for their work. Our most successful team members are self-starters, take the time to explain things to others, and accept constructive feedback. 

Join us in Palo Alto in summer of 2022 for an in-person software internship! You will be assigned a project and a mentor, and interact daily with fellow engineers to write code and design systems to be deployed in the real world.

As an intern, you'll be working on code to solve various challenges. These include: managing our autonomous fleet, identifying and reacting to hazards on the rail, validating our software stack, simulating the rail environment, planning and routing trains on the network, and much more!

We are looking for interns with experience in any of the following: Machine Learning/AI, Systems Software, Embedded/Firmware development, Test and Validation, Networking and Communications, Back-end services, React and web app development

Preferred language experience in Rust, C/C++, or Python.
