Positions: Embedded Software Engineering Intern; Mechanical Engineering Intern; Power Electronics Engineering Intern
Location: Burlington, VT
Innovation Area: Storage, Transmission and Management
Position Type: TomKat Center-supported
Internship Term: 8 weeks
At Resonant Link, we’re building best-in-class wireless chargers to accelerate electrification in multi-billion-dollar markets like robotics, material handling, and electric vehicles. Our wireless chargers are unmatched in speed, price, weight, and size, unlocking electrification by recharging vehicles during the short stops that already exist during operation to extend range and shrink on-board batteries. Since our founding, we’ve landed leading customers in every sector (including 6 Fortune 500 companies) to power their mission-critical applications.
Our growing team is a mix of Ph.D. engineers, industry veterans from Tesla, Apple, Motiv, and Dynapower, and ex-founders and early-stage leaders, all coming together to rethink the charging paradigm. Resonant Link is based in Vermont, Massachusetts, and California and our investors & partners include the National Science Foundation, the Department of Defense, Cyclotron Road / Activate, Stanford, Dartmouth, Urban Us, Scout Ventures and others.
We are looking for an intern that shares our vision of a wireless world and is excited about solving novel technical challenges alongside our world-class team. With a massive growth trajectory currently underway to deliver wireless power to our customers’ mission-critical applications, we can promise a summer full of excitement and foundational contributions to the next generation of power.
Who Should Apply
We are a team of deeply curious learners that want to make a big impact on how the world is powered, and are seeking an intern that shares those values
Embedded Software Engineering Intern
You will design and develop an embedded software system to interface with our best-in-class wireless powertrain, including conceptualizing, writing, testing, and validating code to implement the key functions for efficient, safe, and robust inductive wireless power transfer.
A background in embedded software (preferably C), digital circuits, and analog circuits is preferred. As a small company, a generalist engineering skillset is also helpful, and additional areas of expertise are encouraged. We are looking forward to learning from you!
Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, other engineering/physics/science majors with interest are encouraged as well
Mechanical Engineering Intern
You will work with our mechanical engineer team to conceptualize, design, validate, and test mechanical and thermal designs for wireless chargers and our novel electromagnetic structures. This mechanical design must not impact the electromagnetic performance of the structure, allowing for an opportunity to learn about a new field (or improve your skills in EM). With multiple experts in electromagnetics and mechanical engineering on our team, you will work closely with world-leading engineers to ensure your design meets both the mechanical and electrical specifications, and have the opportunity to stretch your skills broadly in our small company.
A background in heat transfer and experience in CAD drawing and mechanical fabrication are preferred. An electromagnetics background would be helpful but is not required and can be learned on the job. As a small company, a generalist engineering skillset is also helpful, and additional areas of expertise are encouraged. We are looking forward to learning from you!
Mechanical Engineering, AA Engineering, Electrical Engineering, other engineering/physics/science majors with interest are encouraged as well
Power Electronics Engineering Intern
You will lead the design, development, testing, and validation of Resonant Link’s core power electronics to drive our groundbreaking coil technology. With more PhDs in Power Electronics than we can count, Resonant Link designs novel power electronics, including inverters and rectifiers, and we are looking for an intern to join the team – and hopefully teach us a few things! Our power electronics utilize the newest wide-bandgap power semiconductors (GaN and SiC) and operate from hundreds of kHz to tens of MHz, presenting challenges and opportunities in concept, design, implementation, and validation.
A background in (some combination of) power electronics, analog sensing, closed-loop control, digital circuits, and/or analog circuits is necessary. Experience with electronics fabrication and measurement techniques (impedance analyzer, oscilloscope, etc.) is preferred. As a small company, a generalist engineering skillset is also helpful, and additional areas of expertise are encouraged. We are looking forward to learning from you!
