open position

computer vision intern

Automotus helps cities better understand, manage, and monetize their curbs. We use computer vision deployed at the edge to guide planning decisions, autonomously charge companies for parking by the minute, and automate enforcement, while also helping fleets save money by operating more efficiently and avoiding parking citations.

Our team is small but growing fast. We're currently looking for a computer vision intern, who will be a critical asset in building out several key components of our product. 

Given the size of the team and the fluid nature of technical roles in an early-stage organization, we're most interested in someone with a strong foundation in Computer Vision and a keen
interest in applying that knowledge towards making our city streets safer, more sustainable, and more equitable. 

We strongly encourage women and people from underrepresented groups to apply.
