Embedded Software Student Placement – 2019 / 2020

We are looking for a student to work in the software and electronics departments. The role requires logical thinking with a science, engineering and mathematical background to analyse and solve embedded engineering challenges. The successful candidate will be able to apply theoretical modelling and simulation approaches as well as hands on prototyping, schematic capture, PCB layout and testing. There will be opportunities to represent the business by interacting with members of internal teams, external suppliers and clients.

eg technology is a product development consultancy that has grown steadily since being founded in 2002. 

We are successful because we form deep relationships with our clients, understanding their needs and the ways in which we can best help them to transform ideas into successful products. eg don’t just come up with good ideas – we deliver real products based on innovation. We develop products across a wide range of technology sectors with the common goal of making a real impact on people’s lives. 

At eg technology, it’s all about working together as a team; we share our ideas, expertise and knowledge to ensure that everyone can contribute to a project, whilst also feeling supported in a relaxed and enjoyable working environment.

We are offering a one-year, paid internship placement to students as the ‘year in industry’ part of their degree course. We ensure our interns are given the high level of support, mentoring, direction and feedback that they need to advance their skills and broaden their knowledge.

Our interns work on interesting and challenging projects across different teams and disciplines to ensure a full and in-depth experience, helping them to secure future employment.

CVs will be accepted up until 1st February 2019 for a summer start.
