Mill is all about answering a simple question: how can we prevent waste? Less waste can save time, money, energy, maybe even our planet. And there’s no better place to start than food. Food waste is one of the most solvable climate problems facing us today. Plus, our trash really stinks. It’s gross, heavy, and our least favorite chore. At Mill we are striving to build a better environment for all, as we take on climate and kitchen change.

Role Description:

As a firmware engineering intern this summer 2023 at our early stage start-up, you’ll be working with a tight-knit, fast paced team on a novel consumer product. You will have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of consumer product design and manufacture and work on firmware features, tooling, and testing as the team works towards our first launch! You will work hands-on with hardware and lab equipment as well as embedded C code.

Responsibilities:
- Bring-up, prototype, and validate device components like sensors and actuators
- Implement features and tests to produce well-tested, robust code
- Interface with QA and hardware teams to support engineering validation
- Identify and troubleshoot issues from firmware all the way to the hardware
- Analyze device metrics to improve code structures and algorithms

Minimum Qualifications:
- Pursuing Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, or a related field
- Strong C/C++ programming skills
- Embedded device experience (e.g. arduino, microcontroller, etc.)
- Experience with version control using Git

Preferred Qualifications:
- One or more embedded software domain knowledge, such as:
- Microcontroller architecture like ARM Cortex-M, ESP32 etc.
- RTOS/bare metal programming concepts
- Device driver development
- Communication protocols such as SPI, I2C and UART
- Signal processing and sensor validation
- Wireless connectivity technologies like WiFi/BLE
- Unit test framework such as Unity/CMock/Ceedling

The estimated base hourly range for this position is $30 to $40, which does not include the value of benefits or a potential equity grant. A wide range of factors are considered in making compensation decisions, including but not limited to skill sets, market conditions, experience and training, licensure and certifications, and business and organizational needs. At Mill, it is not typical for an individual to be hired at or near the top of the range for their role.

For your awareness, we have been requiring that all employees and visitors who come into our offices verify that they are fully vaccinated with respect to COVID-19. Of course we are open to discussing accommodations where legally required, such as for medical or religious reasons. If you need to discuss accommodations or better understand this requirement, please let me know. Otherwise, please prepare to provide verification of your vaccination.
