Intern / Working Student (m/f) Mapping and Localization (SLAM)

Stu­dent job · Full-time / Part-time · Munich

29. November 2018


Magazino’s Nav­i­ga­tion & Local­iza­tion team devel­ops the soft­ware that allows our robots to autonomously find their way through dynamic envi­ron­ments like ware­houses or pro­duc­tion plants. Our simul­ta­ne­ous local­iza­tion and map­ping (SLAM) sys­tem pro­vides our robots with maps of their envi­ron­ment and real-time loca­tion esti­mates based on input from mul­ti­ple on-board sen­sors like LiDARS, IMUs and odome­ters. We fur­ther use cloud tech­nolo­gies to enable shared, life-long map­ping of dynamic envi­ron­ments among mul­ti­ple robots. Besides devel­op­ing pro­pri­etary com­po­nents, we are one of the top con­trib­u­tors of the open-source Car­tog­ra­pher project.


Your tasks
  • Devel­op­ment of new fea­tures for our multi-robot SLAM stack
  • Mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion of the local­iza­tion accu­racy and reli­a­bil­ity
  • Test­ing and sim­u­la­tion
  • Inte­gra­tion with other com­po­nents and deploy­ment to real robots at our cus­tomer sites


  • A back­ground in robot­ics, com­puter sci­ence, math or related fields
  • Inter­est or knowl­edge in SLAM algo­rithms and multi-robot soft­ware archi­tec­tures
  • Strong cod­ing skills in mod­ern C++ (C++11 and higher), Python skills are help­ful
  • Famil­iar­ity with GNU/Linux and Git
  • First expe­ri­ence with ROS, e.g. in a uni­ver­sity project
  • Expe­ri­ence in main­tain­ing or con­tribut­ing to open-source projects (e.g. on GitHub) — Nice to have!
  • Knowl­edge of frame­works like Car­tog­ra­pher, Ceres, scipy, Eigen, gRPC or pro­to­buf — Nice to have!


What we have to offer
  • Prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence on an inno­v­a­tive robot sys­tem
  • Deep insight in the state of robot­ics
  • Own respon­si­bil­ity and own projects
  • Young and inno­v­a­tive team work­ing envi­ron­ment
  • Free drinks and food
  • Reg­u­lar teamevents

Mag­a­zino is a tech startup and robot­ics com­pany based in Munich, Ger­many. Our team of hard­ware and soft­ware engi­neers is a leader in robot pro­gram­ming and devel­op­ment. Our robots work along­side humans – autonomously, safely and at a level of com­plex­ity that no one before us has ever achieved. With over 100 employ­ees, we are the largest Advanced Robot­ics team in Europe.
