The Software Engineering Intern will experience Real Time, Embedded Software Development on a selection of Military & Aerospace projects. This is a 12 month internship, and applicants should be studying towards a relevant sandwich degree that recognises a 12 month industrial placement.
Abaco Systems is a global leader in commercial open architecture computing and rugged embedded electronics. With more than 30 years of experience in aerospace & defense, industrial, energy, medical, communications and other critical sectors, Abaco’s innovative solutions align with open standards to accelerate customer success.
Abaco Systems is a business unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with 2021 sales of more than $5.5 billion.
Our Software Engineers are responsible for the design, development and test of a range of embedded software. As a software intern at Abaco, you will be assigned to one of our development teams, where you will work on real world products and customer issues.
We understand that you won’t have all the skills we require when you arrive, which is why our managers, team leaders and engineers help coach and support you throughout the placement so that you can develop and achieve during your time with us.
We implement the majority of our code using C, targeted at hardware platforms that are based around PowerPC, some ARM and the latest Intel generation processors.
In the software team, our work involves writing a variety of bare metal code, and code to support various operating systems on our bespoke hardware, along with the surrounding software ecosystems that, for example, allows us to automate testing to ensure repeatability and the long term support of our products.
During the placement as part of their daily work, our interns will interact with groups outside of software, such as Product Managers, other engineering disciplines and our production facility in order to support business activities and provide an exceptional software product for our customers.
The twelve month internship will allow you to discover what we do and how we do it, and for us to learn from and about you. Our previous interns are our first port of call when looking for new graduates and our graduate scheme recognises the knowledge and experience that our returning interns bring back to the business.
At Abaco, we know that our people are our strength. We’re a team with a common goal – and we’re passionate about what we do, innovative, and open-minded. We’re not just given responsibility – we’re actively encouraged take responsibility and make things happen. Oh, and – we have fun. If that sounds like your kind of organization – why not join us?
This is a 12-month Internship and you will need the ability to start at the end of July/beginning of August depending on the intake date.
