Job Description

The ocean is critical to human and planetary health —but ocean health is in rapid and accelerating decline. We believe that we have the responsibility —and ability —to act.

Running Tide is a global ocean health company. Our fast-growing, multidisciplinary teams of world-class scientists, engineers, and maritime operators, design and implement interventions that rebalance Earth’s carbon cycle, decarbonize global supply chains, restore marine ecosystems, and revitalize coastal communities. Our corporate operations, business development, communications, and policy teams support Running Tide’s front-line workers in scaling our interventions to tackle humanity’s most urgent challenges: restoring ocean health and combating climate change.

We are expanding our verification engineering team and looking for an electrical engineering intern to develop, build, and test our proprietary monitoring platforms. The right person is curious, motivated to solve complex challenges, and driven to create novel ways to reverse climate change.

This position will be onsite in our Portland, ME location for the July-December season. Candidates must be local or willing to relocate for the entire duration of the internship.

You Will:

  • Research, design, and develop electronic systems ranging from custom circuit boards to off the shelf systems
  • Develop and execute test plans for electronic systems
  • Build and assemble prototype and production systems
  • Work with internal and external teams to deliver fully integrated solutions

You Are (or You Have):

  • Strong fundamentals in electronics
  • Comfortable using standard test and lab equipment such as multimeter, oscilloscope, and soldering iron
  • Ability to prototype electronic systems which may include some electrical, software, and mechanical design
  • Experience with microcontroller and development boards such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi, etc
  • Desire to fight climate change

Bonus Points:

  • Experience using an EDA tool (we use Altium)
  • Comfortable with linux and embedded systems
  • Experience with Python or similar scripting languages

Our teams operate with utmost persistence. We are tackling the world’s most difficult and important problems, and we are unwavering in our motivation to find a solution. At our core, we are innovators driven to do "more good" rather than "less bad" in the world.

Running Tide is committed to building a diverse team, bringing as many possible perspectives to bear on the unprecedented challenges facing our planet. We are committed to building an inclusive environment where people of all backgrounds  can come to do their best work.

All offers of employment at Running Tide are contingent upon clear results of a thorough background check.
