Compensation: $7500 paid directly by TomKat for first 8 weeks. You can discuss any increase in the duration of the internship and compensation directly with Resonant Link.
Internship Term: 8 weeks
Resonant Link builds the smallest, most efficient wireless chargers in the world, enabling our electric and autonomous future by eliminating charging cables for mobile electronics and batteries. Our coil technology represents the largest wireless power breakthrough of the last decade, simultaneously improving range and efficiency while drastically reducing size and cost. We are supported by grants from the National Science Foundation, Stanford’s TomKat Center, and Dartmouth’s Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship, and have customers using our products in wireless power applications both small and large where only our coils meet the technical requirements. Our deeply technical team holds PhDs from Dartmouth, Michigan, Stanford, and UC Berkeley.
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 more customer projects than team members, we can promise a summer full of excitement and foundational contributions to the next generation of wireless 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 lead the mechanical design of a prototype high-power wireless coil, designing a low-cost, lightweight structure to support the electromagnetic components and maximize heat extraction. 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 two experts in electromagnetics on our team, you will work closely with PhD 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 three PhDs in Power Electronics on our team, 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 both challenges and opportunities in implementation.
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!/
