What to expect

The program

The Empatica Engineering Graduate Program is an intensive on-the-job formative experience for up-and-coming engineers that cannot wait to put their newly acquired skills to the test.

The program covers 4 different team rotations over the span of 12 months, giving participants the chance to fully explore the different paths a full-stack company such as Empatica can offer. By the end of the program, we aim to find the perfect placements for participants to keep pushing Empatica’s mission forward.

Who can apply

You’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.

From intern to full term

Looking back at the program, one of its most helpful aspects was to gradually increase the level of complexity I had to face and the variables I had to take into account, to allow a structured growth of skills and mindset. This certainly allowed me to grow at a much faster pace in the position I am currently in, giving me a solid foundation of knowledge and confidence.

Tommaso V. Product Manager

Already since my first days at Empatica I was given challenging tasks to explore advanced technologies, and got involved in the investigations for the first EmbracePlus prototypes. I enjoyed having been given from the beginning the responsibility and tools to work independently while having a supportive and experienced team to back me up.
