Company Presentation

STEMWORLD Educational Services is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding access to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in schools, and providing access into these fields for disadvantaged and marginalized groups. Our stance is that every student has the right to accessible, practical, and hands-on experience with STEM in preparation for their prosperous careers; be it artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics, or otherwise – all as a part of their core, K-12 education.

Across our various STEM platforms, we look to hire students studying Software and Computer Engineering for the design and implementation of STEM Educationally- Serious-Games (grades K-12). These students will support ongoing activities while experienced engineers will provide mentoring to support their peers’ career skills’ development.

Job Description

We are creating a whole new line of products and services centered around Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Simulations and Autonomous Vehicles. We are contributing to the advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning in Canada. This is a great opportunity to become one of the key members who will define a new standard for how AI systems are trained, tested, and validated. STEM World Educational Services is looking for team members who are adaptable and who enjoy challenging themselves by contributing and designing solutions for the future.

At STEMWorld Educational Services we facilitate the process to enable a simple experience for designing and setting up robotics simulation workflows using Unity 3D Platform. This is a key element to empower roboticists and researchers who have limited to no experience with the Unity Environment.

Your Role at STEMWorld

Your role at STEM World Educational Services is focusing on building out end-to-end robotics simulations that will be released to the community as open-source samples.
