Internships

In addition to full time positions, Roam is always interested in discussing internships in the major disciplines in our company. These include Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Software Engineering, or Controls Engineering. However, due to the investment in time we make in our interns, we only consider placements that last for 6-12 months. To succeed in this position, you must be highly motivated to learn new skills and be able to demonstrate success and a history in taking pride in your work. As a member of a small team, you must demonstrate strong communication skills and an ability to guide the work at times when required. You have the opportunity to impact the future of exoskeleton design by working with our team make devices that do things no other hardware can, and ultimately deliver devices that change how people go about their daily lives.
