Job Description:
Pack your college gear because you can wear it here. At Garmin, we don’t worry about what you’re wearing; we’re too busy pursuing the next best thing, and we want you to be a part of that innovation. You give us 10-12 weeks, from May to August, and we’ll PAY you to play with toys, build cool electronics and meet new people — not only at work but at outings, such as laser tag, ice cream socials and more. Now, this is what you’ve been studying for.

Forget “special projects” for newbies, our software engineering interns work side-by-side with a mentor, making hands-on contributions to the world’s top-selling GPS navigation and wireless communication products. Our interns learn to develop software in C, C++, Assembly or other selected languages. They also test software, perform software releases, quality assurance activities and performance maintenance activities… all on actual Garmin products. Come on, what are you waiting for? Put your brain to work at Garmin.

We’re seeking Software Engineering Interns at our mobile and web development office in Chanhassen, MN for our aviation or marine product development teams.

Qualified candidates must have completed coursework in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or another engineering field plus a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA. Relevant experience and/or training in a high level language such as Java, Objective-C, C++, or C, data structures and object oriented design methodology plus demonstrated strong and effective verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills is also required.

Other responsibilities for Software Engineer Interns in our mobile and web software group include:
• Learning to develop software in Java, C++, or other selected languages for Garmin products in accordance with Garmin’s software development methodology
• Learning to test software using debuggers, emulators, and simulators
• Learning to perform software releases and software quality assurance activities
• Learning to participate in the design of new software products
• Learning to perform maintenance activities for existing products

Other responsibilities include learning to review product information including manuals and brochures for technical accuracy; learning to participate in product definition activities including feature analysis and design trade-offs; and performing other duties as necessary.

Candidates with a cumulative 3.5 GPA and previous experience working in a team environment are preferred. Interest and/or active participation in a Garmin market segment – aviation, marine, automotive, outdoor, or fitness is a major plus!

At Garmin, we like to laugh, have fun and work hard. It comes easily when you work on cool products with hard-working individuals who share the same passion. We offer numerous opportunities to get involved – kickball anyone? – and believe strongly in a work-life balance so your creativity can flow. Garmin offers interns company paid housing and other incredible benefits… an intern package that tops the competition. To learn how you can be a part of our nationally recognized internship program… Apply today.
