The tools and programming languages you will be using
Who can applyYou’re an ideal candidate if:
- You recently graduated
- You’re keen to be part of a talented team
- You get along easily with people from different backgrounds
- You’re not scared of challenges
- You’re eager to start tackling projects and solve real problems
Talent is only one part of the equation. We seek empathy, courage, and passion, to feel at home with our company culture. A good level of English is the only requirement.
Being part of Empatica’s Engineering Graduate Program is one of the most challenging and formative experiences I have ever had.
I’ll definitely recommend this program to everyone who wants to go into the professional world and still doesn’t know what engineers do in the real world, or what they want to become; to everyone that is very curious and ready to learn, and to those who like changes and love to be dynamic.
I like the Graduate Program because I have the opportunity to learn many technical skills from different software areas; from completely new knowledge to improving the knowledge that I already had. It also helped me have a deeper look at how all teams involved in the development of a product work together.
