About the job

We have an opening for an electronics engineering intern at Mechanical Chef. We’re looking for a candidate who is passionate about circuit design and can do a 6 month internship. After or during the internship period, the candidate could receive an offer for a job at the firm.

The opening is at Mechanical Chef in Bangalore. We develop robots for the kitchen.

A selected candidate will need to work out of our office because the hardware is there.

Because of Covid, we are keeping staff to a minimum. You may be the only one in the lab on most days, and on other days, you’d have to work with just one or at most two other colleagues present. So you’ll have to do everything quite independently.

Apply if you love:

  • Electronic circuit design (analog and digital) – you will have to develop your own circuits and know how to design and architect everything from power electronics to control boards to sensor banks. Bonus points if you know how to work with directional microphones and MEMS arrays.
  • Developing and laying out PCBs
  • Taking things apart and figuring out how they work
  • Coming up with alternatives. We are doing our best to make things in India that you usually cannot get in India (so can you say build a motor from scratch)?
  • Are a good learner – you will have to learn many things that fall outside your area of expertise, like programming control logic (to develop control circuitry for robots) and some AI and ML (possibly reinforcement learning) and mechanical engineering (you will be expected to learn to use Solidworks).
  • And are passionate about quality and settle for nothing less than perfection.

When you apply, please talk about any and all projects where you did any of the above and highlight your contributions if it was done in a group. We’re interested in any circuit you’ve designed – be it at home, something you’ve done for fun.

Your work will involve electronics and mechanical engineering, so you have to be good at soldering and know how to put together electronic and mechanical systems.

There will be no assembly assistance, so a lot of your time will go into assembling prototypes and soldering boards together.

What we’re looking to see in a candidate:

  • Creativity
  • Drive – keenness to get things done no matter what obstacles come in your way
  • Discipline and painstaking thoroughness in work. Wanting to see excellence in everything.
  • Wanting to be the best and to do your best.
  • Skilled hands – lots of hardware projects
  • Design skills – electronic circuits that you’ve designed on your own
  • Ability to learn – reasonable programming skills
  • History of having done things extremely well – reasonably good academic background from school till date – ideally you have scored well in at least some subjects that you cared about – say exceptionally well in physics and mathematics.

If you want to be part of a team working on advanced robotics in India, and are keen to solve many fun and challenging problems, and work very hard, plus if you can demonstrate that you have what it takes to make a difference, we’ll be thrilled to hear from you.
