Robotics Applied Scientist Intern (Westborough, North Reading MA)
Are you a MS or PhD student interested in the fields of Computer Vision, Robotics, Machine Learning and Deep Learning and capable of diving deep into hard technical problems and coming up with insightful solutions that enable successful products? Are you unafraid of taking on a mind-bending challenge that really will improve peoples' lives in a meaningful way? Would you love to get access to large datasets with billions of images and video to build large-scale machine learning systems? Are you a finisher who can deliver robust, production-quality code that solves complex, real-world problems in ways that delight customers?
If this describes you, come join the Computer Vision teams at Amazon Robotics. Our teams are using computer vision, machine learning, and real-time and distributed systems to create solutions for problems that impact millions of people. A Computer Vision Scientist at Amazon Robotics will translate business and functional requirements into quick prototypes or proofs of concept. Comfort with a high degree of ambiguity and ability to solve problems that haven’t been solved to scale before are essential.
Amazon Robotics is seeking talented and motivated interns to develop solutions for controling and optimizing mobile-robotic fulfillment systems used by Amazon.com operations. Our problems span autonomous movement, object identification, grasping, path planning, and action understanding. This position will report to the Amazon Robotics functional manager most closely aligned with the candidate’s skillset and project work. Each intern will have an assigned technical mentor throughout the internship, as well as 1-1 guidance from their manager, and will work closely with other engineers.
Amazon Robotics internship opportunities will be based virtually or in the Greater Boston Area, in our two state-of-the-art facilities in Westborough and North Reading, MA. Both campuses provide a unique opportunity for interns to have direct access to robotics testing labs and manufacturing facilities.
Amazon internships are full-time (40 hours/week) for 12 or more consecutive weeks with start dates between May and June 2021.
