About Orok
We have the vision that airports will be fully automatized in upcoming years, so that planes can land and takeoff with no human on ground. We are developing a solution gathering an artificial intelligence on a server to drive a fleet of autonomous vehicles. Our solution allows better working conditions, reduces accidents and improves reliability, along with reducing carbon footprint.

Founded in 2018, OROK is a french startup accelerated by the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique. OROK co-founders are both laureates from Réseau Entreprendre and our project won the first prize of ADP Cargo challenge in startup category (2020). More recently, we were accompanied by Leonard, the prospective and innovation platform of VINCI.

Job Description

2- The mission

After we made our first full scale demonstrator that run last summer in Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle airport, we are going toward our final product design with a new generation of prototypes.

  • if you can learn new things in no time,
  • if you love mobile robots,
  • if you like tasks to be cleanly done,
  • if you want to work in an agile start-up, Then you are our (wo)man! Please send your application!

4 – The internship programs

You will take a sit in the software team, which is responsible for building the product as defined by the system team.
We have many topics to propose from low level development to highest abstraction layers: build our linux, interface our new motor controllers, analyse 3D cam data, prevent collisions, localise the robot, calibrate the robot, communicate with a base-station.
Exact topic for your internship will depend on your profile, our needs, your ramp up capabilities and your wishes.

A start-up is a very dynamic environment, we are open to all ideas, you will be a key part of our project as you can define your topic with us. When done, we can provide a clear content description to your school manager.
