XStream Trucking is a close-knit team working to improve the efficiency of the $700 billion trucking industry. We believe in rapid prototyping, constant interactions with our customers, and a principle of ‘go to the pain’ to resolve any issues during development. We are looking for passionate, hands-on engineers who want to design and build something great. Our first product, TruckWings, deploys out from the cab at highway speeds directing the air over the tractortrailer junction – eliminating the drag caused by this gap. We save our customers thousands of dollars per year per truck, and we are driven by the promise that our device has the potential to reduce emissions by more than the entire current U.S. solar market.
Mechanical Engineering Intern
Who should apply:
We are looking to expand our engineering team with someone who shares our love of endtoend product development and wants to make a difference. Specific experience in aerodynamics, trucking, and prototyping are a plus, but we are primarily interested in mechanicallyinclined individuals who are willing to develop engineering solutions in CAD; design a resilient product for a harsh environment; collaborate directly with manufacturers; install prototypes on semis; and get feedback from early customers.
Pursuing mechanical/aerospace engineering or related degree (product design etc. also considered). Preference will be given to students who have strong prototyping/design and communication skills, including solid modeling and finite element analysis.
Embedded Systems Engineering Intern
As part of our Embedded Systems team you will be continuing to develop the electronics hardware that makes the TruckWings™ work so well. We’re interested in adding new features at a rapid rate now that we have a solid footing on the core operation of the panel system. We will be developing new software and hardware upgrades, which we know, are going to impress our customers.
Previous interns have developed PCBs from the ground up, developed improved algorithms for J1939 CAN data processing, and created reliable diagnostics subroutines allowing us to communicate reliably with our devices in the field.
