Would you like an opportunity to develop software for a company that designs the heart of mobile phones?

The very different worlds of web technology and specialist software engineering combine in this exciting opportunity for students to complete a year in industry placement in a world leading, international company.

Working at MediaTek UK - Cambridge Office, England

Hear from current MediaTek employees about work life at the MediaTek Cambridge (UK) office.

MediaTek develops the incredibly complex chipsets and embedded software that powers today’s smart phones and one of our roles (in Cambridge) is to write the specialist software to automatically validate these systems against real networks, simulations, and dedicated test equipment. We can even validate the most advanced 4G and 5G features, without waiting for the real operators to roll them out.

Because we work on multiple projects in parallel, you will have the unique opportunity to work across a diverse range of specialties – from cellular protocol stacks to PC tools, databases, web design and Android applications. Your learning is important to us, which is why we’ll make the most of your strengths and interests when selecting which projects you’ll work on.

As well as working in a friendly local team, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with our internal customers – R&D and validation colleagues ‐ in Finland, India, Taiwan, and China.

Experience with multiple programming languages can be a great asset when looking for future employment, and we can offer you just that. In this role you’ll have the opportunity to be exposed to object‐oriented languages, such as C++ and C#, as well as ‘web‐languages’ (for example HTML and JavaScript).

You will have the opportunity to adapt your existing knowledge to new languages, or maybe become an expert in one particular language.

Duration

The placement will begin in 2022 and we can be flexible about the start date. The length of the internship placement will need to be between 9 to 12 months long.

Location

This internship will be at our Cambourne, Cambridgeshire office, based 9 miles outside Cambridge city centre (with frequent direct bus services). Cambridge is also conveniently located within one hour from Central London, four main London airports and The Eurostar.

Requirement

Experience with multiple programming languages can be a great asset when looking for future employment, and we can offer you just that. In this role you’ll have the opportunity to be exposed to object-oriented languages, such as C++ and C#, as well as ‘web-languages’ (for example HTML and JavaScript).

You will have the opportunity to adapt your existing knowledge to new languages, or maybe become an expert in one particular language.

You’ll be…

  • On track to obtain a good degree or PhD in engineering, science, or maths
  • A great problem solver/creative thinker
  • Someone who enjoys picking up new skills quickly, through informal learning within the team
  • Self-motivated and able to work both in a team and autonomously
  • Keenly interested in software programming

In addition, one or more of the below would be great (but not essential)

  • An understanding and interest in PC applications – how they work and interact
  • An interest in mobile phones and to learn more about what’s inside them
  • Familiarity with any wireless communications system
  • Interest in the use of smart tools to automate complex activities

What we’ll offer you in return

  • Work in a modern open-plan R&D Center close to Cambridge
  • Excellent and varied experience working on real projects in a leading global, high-tech company
  • Opportunity to work with experienced and diverse engineers in friendly project teams
  • Opportunity to interact (via email, IM, and video conference) with R&D colleagues around the world
  • Benefits: Holiday
  • Competitive salary – Depends on year of study
