Rosotics is on a mission to make metal 3D printing dramatically more efficient, unlocking the potential to build larger and more complex structures than ever before. Our groundbreaking technology makes it simple to produce critical hardware at unprecedented scale, for use in aerospace environments. With Rosotics, there are no limits to what you can create.

Applied Internship - Spring 2023 (Systems & Controls)

As an early member of the Mantis Engineering team, you will have a unique opportunity to be the bridge between design and test; equally anchored in both disciplines with the ability to spearhead change throughout a product’s life cycle. You will provide input into the design and development of new and existing hardware and take a hands on, applied role in hardware assembly. You will have the opportunity to work on and improve the wide variety of components that enable Rosotics hardware to be the simplest and most robust technologies for large-scale additive manufacturing. You will need strong problem-solving ability and relentless curiosity, practicing breakthrough approaches to control system development and test procedures. Familiarity with Python, articulated systems, and REST API will be useful for this position.


  • Hands-on test and integration of primary and secondary structures, components, and architectures for the Mantis Production System
  • Execute on directions for robotic control system programming and integrated system data acquisition, converting those directions into functional and test-ready systems
  • Utilize knowledge of control system performance to analyze and test physical and electronic systems
  • Perform case-use and performance testing to validate analysis and demonstrate compliance to criteria
  • Provide insight and unique perspective into electronic design and code to lead engineers, to drive product improvement
  • Exemplify technical excellence and be accountable for your work, challenging assumptions and building strong professional relationships

Basic Qualifications:

  • Pursuing degree in relevant engineering discipline with anticipation of degree within 12 months
  • 1-5 years of relevant experience with in systems design, ideally with an emphasis on robotic control systems
  • Proven ability to practically apply first principles to solve real, complex problems

Preferred Skills and Experience:

  • Pursuing advanced degree in a relevant engineering discipline
  • Demonstrated ability to manufacture and test hardware or systems within an integrated engineering team outside a classroom setting (FSAE, NASA, entrepreneurial ventures, etc.)
  • Demonstrated understanding of control systems and failure modes of mechanical systems
  • Knowledge of and experience in writing code in C++ and Python as needed to facilitate actuating system control, preferably to a PC-based user control interface or dedicated control algorithms.
  • Working knowledge of REST API, and ability to utilize for machine - software data acquisition.
  • Experience in industrial environments where large equipment is in use; familiarity with, and respect for, workplace safety requirements that are meant to govern the safe operation of large articulated systems using high current electrical power.
  • In-depth knowledge and ability to select/use the most common types of sensor and control elements, including angular encoders, pressure transducers, photoelectric switches, thermocouples, displacement gauges, etc. and their utilization as electronic I/O.
  • Knowledge of electro-mechanical devices, gear trains, actuators, motors, valves, regulators, or other fluid and position control devices
  • Ability to asses risk and make design and development decisions without all available data
  • Unfazed by change in strategic direction

Additional Requirements:

  • Must be able to commute regularly to the Falcon Field Airport in Mesa, AZ
  • Ability to lift up to 25 lbs. unassisted
  • Standing for long periods of time, climbing up and down ladders, bending, grasping, sitting, pulling, pushing, stooping, and stretching are generally required to perform the functions of this position
