Graduate Software Engineer

"I enjoy the freedom to suggest ideas and to see them through, to be given the opportunity to find a niche that works for you."

Why did you choose to pursue a career with Forsberg?

I studied a physics Masters Degree at Lancaster University, completing in July 2022. I joined Forsberg a week after my university term ended, initially I started on a three-month internship as a Software Engineer which then became a permanent position after my internship ended. Forsberg stood out to me because they had some really interesting past and present projects in areas that I already had some knowledge in. The business works in high quality specialised areas which is exciting to be a part of. There also seemed to be good opportunity to progress and develop.

In your current role, what projects have you been involved in?

I have worked on a project using data from receivers to locate GPS jammers, improving and understanding the algorithms used to do this. I have also worked independently doing R&D work on locator algorithms as well as working on analysis tools for large data sets and currently I am in the initial stages of researching and understanding a new project.

What training and development are you offered to assist in your future development goals?

I was given the resources and support to learn a new programming language and to improve on the language and skills I already had from my degree. I have had exposure to professional practices and standards of code which are important for transitioning from a student to a software developer.

Is there a good social aspect to working at Forsberg?

So far during my time at Forsberg, there have been multiple social events outside of the office giving me the opportunity to interact with colleagues in a different, more relaxed setting, as well as in-office teambuilding and events to help get to know my peers better. Day to day everyone is very friendly around the office.

What is your favourite thing about working at Forsberg?

I enjoy the freedom to suggest ideas and to see them through, to be given the opportunity to find a niche that works for you, though the view from the office is a close contender!
