AI generated summary

  • You must have experience in Python and embedded C programming, developing software for hardware, reading data sheets, writing drivers, and using electrical test instruments.
  • You will work on building component and tester requirements, implementing software for validation, developing automation-centric tools, gaining expertise on components behavior, and owning test assets from planning to analysis.

Off-cycle Internship

Software Engineering•San Francisco


  • In developing a test asset, you will gain a deep understanding of the system you are working on. This could be the full avionics stack and the embedded code that lives in them, including flight computers, power distribution boards, battery management systems, and motor controllers. The test of these systems will likely involve the design and build of mechatronics systems and along with the development of complex scripts that automate many sensors and actuators with operator safety in mind. In all cases, you will have full ownership of the results of your work from early system prototypes to the data analysis and recommendations that come from it. If this sounds like something you'd be excited to tackle, read on.


  • Experience programming in Python with some knowledge of embedded C
  • Experience developing software that interfaces directly with hardware and instrumentation
  • Experience navigating data sheets and writing basic drivers for new components
  • An understanding of basic electrical and/or mechanical principles
  • Experience working with common electrical test instrumentation (multimeters, oscilloscopes, etc.)
