Machine Learning Engineer (Intern)


Skywalk is an early-stage deep tech startup founded by a team of Stanford PhDs and MBAs. We are building the next generation of human computer interaction - a wearable smartband that turns your hand into a powerful Augmented Reality (AR) controller. With custom hardware and cutting-edge machine learning algorithms, our smartband allows users to become AR native in minutes.

Recent winners of the Tufts 100K New Ventures Competition, StartX SIR, and VentureWell E-Team, we are growing rapidly as we bring our first product to market. We are looking for talented interns to join our team and build the first platform for intuitive on-body computing. In this role you’ll interface with our sensor team, collect never-before-seen datasets, and build pipelines that allow us to rapidly train, test, and deploy new models.

Our internships will be ten (10) weeks long with the potential to extend to part-time work throughout the year.

We want candidates who are creative and love to hack. If you’ve built something cool, show us!


What you’ll be up to…

Improving the architecture and design of machine learning infrastructure (data collection, training, and ML models) to support rapid iteration.

Improving ML models for gesture classification that can scale alongside improvements in hardware and data collection.

Writing modular and performant code that allows for unit testing, versioning, and visualization.

Developing a project work plan and taking ownership of concrete deliverables.


You might be a good fit if you are…

Fluent in python and proficient in ML libraries (PyTorch, Pandas).

Experienced with version control software and cloud computing (AWS, Google Cloud).

Willing to dive into ambiguous environments and create awesome products.

Experienced with applying machine learning to biometric data.

Fluent in ML pipelines and theory - preprocessing, training, and model stability.


We want curious people who are excited to build with us, so please apply even if you don’t check all the boxes! The Skywalk team believes that a diverse team creates amazing opportunities. You will actively be involved in building an inclusive organization where every employee feels welcome and appreciated for their unique contributions.
