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 develop a solution gathering an artificial intelligence on a server to drive a fleet of robots.

Founded in 2018, OROK is a french startup accelerated by the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique. OROK co-founders are laureates from Réseau Entreprendre.

Job Description

1- The mission
The plan is to build a handsome new outdoor mobile robot from scratch. Our product is something between an A.G.V. and an autonomous car. An experimentation is planned this summer on a first prototype (can’t wait to be there!).

2- Our Target
We would never achieve this goal without an outstanding team, this is were you enter the game :

  • if you have so much energy that you can’t stay without doing something,
  • if you like to take part of ambitious technical and human challenges,
  • if you can learn new things in no time,
  • if you love 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 !

3– The intership program
We have many many many subjects 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.

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

4– The good things about this internships

  • You will be supervised by an experienced embedded system architect with a specialisation in mobile robotics and system architecture.
  • The full development is delegated, not only the boring stuff !
  • Test your creations in real, this is not a simulation only internship !
