Help shape the future of robotics with us!

About Tiny Mile:

We’re making last-mile delivery faster, cheaper and greener.

We deploy remotely-piloted electric sidewalk robots that provide a safe, contactless delivery option to restaurants, pharmacies, and other retail partners and their customers.

We’ve raised $10M in funding from notable investors who believe Tiny Mile has hit an inflection point. Some of our investors include Animo Ventures, Bedrock, Golden Ventures and Naspers.

Why Tiny Mile exists:

We’re solving a real problem.

The transportation sector is among the highest polluters, accounting for 29% of greenhouse gas emissions. Urban last-mile delivery emissions alone are set to increase by 30% by 2030 due to the rise in e-commerce.

Our robots use as much electricity as a lightbulb, are fully electric, and free up congested road space by 'right-sizing' vehicles for local small parcel delivery. Imagine getting medication from your local pharmacy delivered in -20 Celsius weather for less than it costs to fill the prescription.

Transportation has always been the backbone of the economy. Our delivery robots are here to ease trade and foster economic growth. Join us and be part of this uncharted territory!

What you’ll be doing:

Reporting to the Mechatronics Engineer, the Mechatronics Engineering Intern will help design mechanical and electrical systems for our robots. This is an exciting opportunity to gain a breadth of experience in designing a robot and actively supporting its launch and evolution in a real-life operating environment.

To succeed in this role, you’re passionate about designing the best system possible - not just the most mechanically or electrically optimal. You're never quite satisfied with a job left half-done!

What we’re looking for:

  • Actively pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related
  • Currently enrolled in your 3rd or 4th year
  • Interest in robotic system architecture, including computing systems, localization and obstacle avoidance
  • Interest in designing and deploying mechatronic systems with high reliability and life requirements
  • Interest in learning electronic power systems
  • Interest in working with 3rd-party manufacturers and communicating via drawings and other methods
  • Interest in supporting users directly and incorporating their feedback into the design process

Technologies we use:

  • Frontend: Typescript, React, React-Native
  • Backend: Go
  • Infrastructure: Google Cloud, Kubernetes, Pulumi
  • Geoffrey: Embedded Systems, Real-Time Operating Systems, Pink Spray Paint

What you can expect from us:

  • Growth: You’ll be an early employee working directly with a cross-functional team that spans mechanical engineers to robot pilots.
  • Leadership: Our CEO, Ignacio Tartavull, truly empowers all members of our team to have an impact on Tiny Mile and our future.
  • Benefits from Day 1: For employees in Canada, we provide a healthcare benefits package that includes extended medical, dental, vision, life and travel insurance. Candidates outside of Canada are offered comparable benefits.
