What does the role involve?
As intern in our department you’ll be part of a development team researching innovative approaches for cordless impact drivers and wrenches.
You’ll work closely with our experts to develop to develop new functions and strategies to generate additional benefits and increase performance. Your key responsibilities will be to design and test your own algorithms with state-of-the-art development tools. You’ll test and apply them in the real application and support our team in evaluating the most promising solutions.
What do we offer?
We’ll give you the tools you need to excel in your internship, including one-to-one coaching. You’ll enjoy a rare combination of autonomy and camaraderie, as you’ll manage your own project while being part of a friendly team.

We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you have no knowledge of construction, that’s fine with us. We’re more interested in your ability, commitment and drive to succeed.
What you need is:
- BSc/MSc level studies in control engineering, cybernetics, mechanical or electrical engineering with focus on control systems or a related discipline
- Good knowledge in Matlab/Simulink and dSPACE tools, background in machine learning and/or embedded control is a plus
- Strong communication skills, with excellent English and interpersonal skills
- A proactive approach and self-reliant personality
We take our time to get to know you. As part of your recruitment process, you’ll get to talk to your internship coach as well as your HR Manager who both can answer some of your burning questions.
