About the job

We are looking for awesome Robotics Interns.

Carbon Origins is a venture-backed, groundbreaking robotics company with a mission to Make Robots Commonplace™, unlocking a world where robots manage dull, repetitive, and dangerous tasks, so people can focus on higher-value ambitions. Our flagship robot, Skippy, is revolutionizing last-mile food delivery.

Skippy is the first food delivery robot being supervised and trained by a metaverse workforce. Through our gamified VR platform, Origins™, robot supervisors we lovingly call “Skipsters” help Skippy navigate the real world. When Skippy encounters a novel problem he can’t solve on his own, a Skipster takes over, improving urban navigation and human-robot interactions, while simultaneously teaching him how to do it on his own by training neural networks. 

Carbon Origins went through the 2021 Techstars Farm to Fork Accelerator. Skippys are now roaming the sidewalks of Minnesota delivering meals to offices, and soon, he will be coming to your neighborhood. 

We are a mission-driven company. Everything we do is focused on Making Robots Commonplace. We are looking for passionate, hungry, and entrepreneurial VR  Software Engineers to join our kick-ass team of engineers, scientists, and entrepreneurs. We have launched rockets, landed robots on Mars, deployed satellite constellations, and developed VR technologies. Come change the world with us!
