Software Engineering - 12 Month Internship
At GE, we take the impossible and make it unimpossible. Think you can do the same?
GE is the world’s Digital Industrial Company, transforming industry with software-defined machines and solutions that are connected, responsive and predictive. GE is organized around a global exchange of knowledge, through which each business shares and accesses the same technology, markets, structure and intellect. Each invention further fuels innovation and application across our industrial sectors. With people, services, technology and scale, GE delivers better outcomes for customers by speaking the language of industry.
It is not about your career. It is not about your job title. It is about who you are. It is about the impact you are going to make on the world. You want to go into uncharted waters - do things that haven’t been done to make yours and someone else's life better.
Today, more than ever, the world needs great minds. What the world needs…is you.
Over your 12 month internship you'll work in a Software Engineering environment gaining invaluable skills and experience. The opportunities available will cover all aspects of Software Engineering from software design and integration to testing. Depending on skillset and role requirements, you will develop your programming languages skills in (but not limited to) Java, C, C++, C#, Python, Raspberry Pi and/or Arduino. You could be analysing requirements, designing an application or defining a test specification. You could be supporting with configuration management, database development and system monitoring and engaging with internal & external customers and third party vendors.
You will be guided by structured goals & objectives and will have responsibility to deliver on inspiring projects. We will support you throughout the year to ensure you make the best of your GE experience. Your manager will offer coaching and mentoring, and the Company will provide the opportunity to connect with other interns across the UK.
