About our Software Engineering Co-Ops & Internships
*Note: This posting is for both a summer-only internship/co-op and a summer/fall ’23 co-op – please indicate your availability on your resume*
If you want to learn how to develop the most reliable, robust, error-free systems, then Avidyne is the place to work. Our quest to make the safest aviation related products, coupled with the rigorous demands of FAA mandated processes, means you will learn what it means to make software that is as close to error-free as possible.
Our systems consist of multiple processors, running numerous object-oriented applications on top of real-time operating systems.
You will work under the guidance of Senior & Principal Software Engineers in the development of our Integrated Flight Displays (IFD’s), flight controls, and surveillance products.
Avidyne internships & co-ops are paid, full-time temporary positions with preference given to candidates local to the Boston area. Our 2023 co-ops require a 4 – 6-month commitment, and our 2023 summer internship runs May 15th through July 28th, 2023.
