As a mechatronics intern at Aquila, you will have the opportunity to work on cutting-edge technology that has the potential to change how we distribute energy around the world. Unlocking sustainable aviation, maritime and transportation.
Fundamentally, we need someone to help us build and test the laser charging system. Someone to connect systems together, test them insightfully, and collaborate with us to learn.
This could involve learning across a broad skill set: basic programming, sensor electronics, mechanical jigs, gimbals, actuators, basic optics, radio systems, microcontrollers, cameras, and more. It's a fun and diverse role that is suitable for a range of skill sets. It is flexible and depends on the candidate's strengths.
Everyone is an owner. In addition to excellent base compensation, every 'eagle' owns equity in the company, so we all benefit from our hard work and future success. Everyone is given a unique and epic eagle avatar upon signing the contract to join Aquila.
Generous paid parental leave. We offer eight weeks of paid caregiver leave and an additional eight weeks of paid leave for the birth giver.
Generous relocation budget & support. Support for interstate or overseas team members and their families (including pets!)
Flexible working hours and location. While we often enjoy shooting lasers around—with the utmost safety—in our fully decked-out laser facilities, if there are days when we can work from anywhere, then we feel free to work from anywhere!
Unlimited Personal Leave. At Aquila, we recognise that sometimes you need time off to recuperate, look after your mental health, or deal with an emergency. We put unlimited personal leave in place to empower you to bring your best self to work every day, and you are always paid for days taken off as personal leave.
We care about our people. At Aquila, we don't focus on what our people can do for us; we focus on what we can do for our people. As part of our commitment to our people, we provide an annual $5k budget for side projects, gizmos and gadgets you want to develop, skills you want to learn, and ways you want to grow outside work.
Company-wide social events. Monthly birthday celebrations, Quarterly offsite hiking through beautiful Australian and Aotearoa landscapes, annual end-of-year celebrations and much more!
Great, decked-out office! An inclusive community and culture in a welcoming office—full of lasers and cutting-edge hardware
A variety of social clubs. We encourage all our Eagles to build the culture with us and share what they love by creating social clubs across the business. From book clubs to hiking groups, we're always looking for ways to learn and engage with our team.
