About The Role

Launch your career with one of the most exciting summer internship opportunities in New Zealand! Following the success of our first rocket ("It's a Test") we are looking for stand-out talent to join our hardworking team over the summer. 

Our Guidance, Navigation and Control team are responsible for the software that gets our customers' payloads exactly where they need to be. As an intern with this A-team you're day-to-day tasks may include adding simulator / flight software development capability, assisting with the testing of software and hardware (HITL), and developing configuration management software and/or HMI software using full-stack Javascript. 

You will have the opportunity to get involved in exciting projects such as adding new features and models to our flight simulator, running testing and simulation of our vehicle in software/hardware in the loop, and adding new features or maintaining existing supporting web-based Javascript software.

This internship programme will certainly have its perks, as you learn from the best in the aerospace industry, watch live test fires, have unlimited access to our snack and fruit baskets, attend our staff Christmas party, and (fingers crossed) view a launch alongside the dedicated people that made it happen. 

Internship requirements:
  • Final year electrical / electronics / mechatronics / software engineering student (or equivalent qualification)
  • Experience with C / C++ coding and object-oriented software development OR Javascript-based web development
  • Good fundamental understanding of basic physics 
Include the following with your application: 
  • Your CV
  • A copy of your unofficial transcript
  • A cover letter including an example of a practical engineering or software development project you have completed (preferably outside of university, but could be a university assignment) with a description of the problem you solved. 
Internship dates: Monday 20 November 2017 - Friday 23 February 2018 (may vary depending on your course requirements). 

Applications close Sunday 27 August 2017 (get in quick - we snap up the best candidates as soon as they apply!)
