Viam is a robotics platform that makes it easy to turn great ideas into production-ready robots. Viam works with any hardware and has a modern architecture, easy developer APIs, cloud connectivity and tools, and enterprise-grade security to give even the leanest teams the power to launch and scale their robotics business.

Viam makes building, deploying and managing robots more flexible, affordable and easy to use so that builders can do more with robots while getting them to market faster. By making robotics more accessible, Viam is attracting talent and investment to the industry so that more people start working with robots to build products and services that improve our world.

Viam's products are built by engineers, for engineers. We want to build a platform we would want to use ourselves. We are looking for students studying computer science or related fields to collaborate with our full time engineers on building out the software for our platform. Our current tech stack consists of Golang (backend), ES.Next/TypeScript/Vue.js (frontend), Linux, MongoDB (database), and a variety of hardware. This is a software engineering internship, not hardware.

You’ll be:

  • Working across the stack on the new and unique problems in robotics and cloud computing
  • Fully integrated with the full time engineering team
  • Using state of the art technologies that best tackle our problems at hand
  • Learning engineering best practices in real world production environments
  • Playing with robotics hardware to test out the software we build

We’re looking for someone who:

  • In the process of receiving a Bachelor’s or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Robotics, or related field, with at least one additional term after the end of the internship
  • Available to intern in person at our New York City office for 10-12 weeks during the summer of 2024
  • Strong foundation in computer science fundamentals including algorithms, data structures, architecture and/or robotics
  • Experience with various programming languages


  • Free lunch everyday that you are in the office
  • 3 vacation days to be used throughout the summer
