Internship: Automatic Verification of Flowstate Processes



Munich, Germany
Posted on Thursday, February 1, 2024

Intrinsic is Alphabet’s bet aiming to reimagine the potential of industrial robotics. Our team believes that advances in AI, perception and simulation will redefine what’s possible for industrial robotics in the near future – with software and data at the core.

Our mission is to make industrial robotics intelligent, accessible, and usable for millions more businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers. We are a dynamic team of engineers, roboticists, designers, and technologists who are passionate about unlocking the creative and economic potential of industrial robotics.


We aim to enable non-experts in robotics to build complex applications. We are seeking a highly motivated and talented intern to build tools that support our users by automatically verifying their robotic behavior trees. Your solution will automatically analyze its execution paths beyond what users can comprehend intuitively. Such a validation is a challenging algorithmic problem and will be an invaluable tool for making application authoring generally available. Join our team and contribute towards furthering Intrinsic’s mission to democratize robotics and make cutting-edge technology accessible for all!

How your work moves the mission forward

  • Contribute towards simplifying process authoring in our platform Flowstate
  • Gain a deep understanding of behavior tree semantics
  • Enhance the user experience by shortening the time to a successful process execution on the robot
  • Understand difficulties for our users and come up with automatic solutions on your own
  • Collaborate with a team of experienced professionals in modern software development practices
  • Explore and implement solutions, including coding in C++, Python as well as specialized languages and tools

Skills you will need to be successful

  • Master or PhD student in Computer Science or related field (PhD students preferred)
  • Proficient in modern C++ on Linux
  • Experience in at least one of model checking, graph search, knowledge representation, non-deterministic reasoning or planning
  • Ability to understand underspecified challenging problems, and propose and implement complex solutions
  • Experience in creating robotics applications or systems
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

At Intrinsic, we don't just accept difference - we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status. We also consider qualified applicants regardless of criminal histories, consistent with legal requirements.
