Join us for a unique 15-week internship that offers personal and professional development in engineering and related technologies. We believe solutions to challenges will evolve from the application of technology appropriately adopted within context, and we’re looking for three (3) candidates with backgrounds in roboticists, UX/UI designers, hardware and software engineers, computer scientists, mathematicians and related applied scientists to help us explore these solutions, develop breakthrough technologies, explore our current solutions stack, and build new products that could help solve key challenges we’ve identified for our current project iteration cycle (year 2018).  A stipend will be provided to facilitate commute, lunch and telephony.

Autonomous Systems Research Limited [ASR] is a Kenyan start-up multidisciplinary research team specializing in engineering research and its use in tackling conservation, humanitarian and other challenges. Our vision and mission are to solve social problems using technology appropriately adopted within context to match the challenge.

This position will be available until the 15th of December 2017.


  • Apply knowledge gained in courses to real-world problems.
  • Analyze information and evaluate results to choose the best solution to effectively solve problems.
  • Develop scripts to automate routine tasks.
  • Create and support a productive and innovative team.
  • Work with a small team to design, develop and test robust technical systems capabilities.
  • Assist with the overall design, development, fault analysis, test and integration of a customer-facing product.


Minimum qualifications:

  • Currently enrolled in a full-time Diploma, Higher Diploma or Bachelor’s in Computer Science or related technical field such as Mechanical, Aerospace, Civil or related Engineering program.
  • Completed projects (inside or outside of school) or classes focused on Data Structures and Algorithms, engineering, or computer science; Experience with algorithms, using data structures to solve problems, and interpreting algorithms and contributing ideas to their development.
  • Experience writing code fixes and tools to solve problems in one or more of the following languages: C, C++, Java, JavaScript, or Python (e.g., remove duplicate elements from a list).
  • Experience with linear coding and use language features when necessary (e.g., data structures, branching, function-calls, and conditionals).
  • Experience in electronics and aerospace engineering an added advantage.
