Reliable Robotics Corporation

Test Automation Engineer (Summer 2023 Internship)

Mountain View, CA
USD 102k - 102k
C++ Python
We believe aircraft should fly themselves. Automated aviation systems will enable a future where air transportation is safer, more convenient and fundamentally transformative to the way goods — and eventually people — move around the planet. We are a team of mission-driven engineers with experience across aerospace, robotics and self-driving cars working to make this future a reality.

As an engineer at Reliable Robotics, you will work with a team of mission-driven engineers with experience across aviation, space, robotics and self-driving cars to make this future a reality. Reliable Robotics has year-round internship opportunities for students pursuing a degree in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, robotics or a similar field of study. Successful candidates will work alongside senior engineers to design, develop and test flight systems.
As a Test Automation Engineer Intern, you will be a part of the Testing team. The Testing team owns the hardware-in-the-loop (HITL) test environments, which means we own the physical hardware construction and maintenance as well as the software infrastructure that enables automated and manual tests. Additionally, our team uses these HITL environments to test Reliable Robotics autonomous systems. In summary, this team develops and maintains essential test tools for the company, and directs HITL verification and validation activities to ensure our product is safe, successful and meets certification requirements.


During your internship, you will add features and functionality to the existing HITL software infrastructure. You will collaborate closely with engineering teams across the entire company, as these test environments are critical for verifying our products. You will also have the opportunity to own a project from proposal and design all the way through implementation and testing. We believe interns will learn the best by doing, so our goal is to provide you the mentorship and support to deliver innovative and exciting work.

Basic Success Criteria

    • 4-year college degree in computer science or equivalent practical experience
    • Previous experience with C/C++ and Python
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
    • Attention to detail

Preferred Criteria

    • Demonstrated ability to work in a self-directed manner in a fast-paced environment
