FarSounder is a small and growing marine sonar company located in Warwick, Rhode Island. We've invented and developed a new kind of sonar that shows the user a 3D image of the underwater environment in front of their vessel (similar to radar, but in 3D and underwater).

We're looking for an innovative Computer Science student to work with us on our C++ and Python applications. During this paid internship, you will be mentored by our Engineering team. They will lead you in producing valuable contributions to the development of our technology and products.

If you are an undergraduate (preferably junior or senior) or graduate level student, there are some exciting projects available to you. Based on your interest and experience your project could be in any number of areas, some of which include: data visualization, user interface design, signal processing, networking, machine learning, and 3D graphics.

Past intern projects have included:

  • Design and implementation of user facing features
  • Development and testing improvements to existing algorithms
  • Researching and prototyping new processing algorithms
  • Expanding back end automation tooling used in our continual integration processes
  • Collection and analysis of field test data
  • Customizing open source tools to better match FarSounder needs

Being that we're a small company, you can expect to gain experience with a broad spectrum of the software development process. You will be involved in all phases of your project including the initial design, coding, testing, documenting, and final release. You'll probably also learn a bit about sales, user interface design, and customer support.
