We’re currently looking for full-time software engineers, instrumentation engineers, robotics engineers, visiting students, postdocs, UROPs, and accepted MIT grad students to support deep learning, computer vision, human-computer interaction, human factors, and robotics research in the domain of semi-autonomous vehicles, human-robot interaction, large-scale data-science, and human-centered artificial intelligence. Fill out the form below if you’re interested.

Who we are:

We are a group of researchers (led by Lex Fridman) who love tinkering with code, data, and hardware at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence. Who we're looking for:

We’re looking for passionate programmers and engineers to support deep learning and computer vision research in the domain of semi-autonomous vehicles. You may either be a great programmer, a great embedded system engineer, a car guru, or just somebody who loves semi-autonomous cars and robots. See image below for more details of the various kind of engineering directions we're looking for.

Why work with us:
  • Learn: Intense, challenging, innovative environment means you’ll learn a lot. We don’t shy away from working hard towards things we’re passionate about.  If you work with us, you’ll remember this time as one when you accomplished something special.
  • Community: MIT is the #1 ranked engineering university in the world. Exciting ideas are in the air. We not only want to change the world but are working hard every day to do so.
  • Research: You will have an opportunity to support and contribute to cutting-edge research.

MIT does not sponsor visas (except for postdocs). In many cases, students who have been in F-1 visa status (recent graduates) may be able to get an OPT extension for 12 months and then a 24 month STEM OPT extension. It's up to you to figure out if you're eligible. Answering "yes" for the following question will likely disqualify you from consideration.
13. Do you require Visa sponsorship in order to start work with us? *This question is required.
Select the country you currently reside in.
16. Salary at MIT is reasonably fixed for all of us. Your annual salary will be around $50-60K. There is some flexibility around this, depending on experience, but not much. Do you confirm your understanding of this? *This question is required.
