Precision Systems, Inc. (PSI) has been in the business since 1984, supporting leading companies with proven expertise in developing microprocessor, embedded, PC-based products, and mobile device products. As well as providing software and firmware development services, we specialize in software related consulting and planning. Our clientele includes Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Government, and privately owned small businesses. The industries we serve range from the medical and pharmaceutical field to military equipment and across many commercial concerns. This varied experience provides clients a diverse array of software development options for their applications.
PSI is seeking motivated, bright undergraduates to join the organization as Software Engineering Interns. Interns are trained and tested and once they are able to show they’re preparedness, they work on real (non-critical) projects under the direct supervision of senior software engineers. Interns also work on internal products and projects for the company. The experience they gain is varied and highly dependent on the skills and responsibility they exhibit. This position is challenging and rewarding, and for the right person can lead to a full time opportunity upon graduation.
Responsibilities and Duties
All interns must study and be tested on PSI’s standard operating procedures for software engineering, verification, change control, and configuration management. In addition, all interns must complete two practical projects that are reviewed and critiqued by other software engineers. Only after they have completed these will they be given project work. Project work varies, but it can be documentation generation, unit test creation, programming, test execution, or other project organizational tasks. The exact activities will change from week to week but the nature of the work will always be meaningful.
