Andreas Boes Jakobsen just started an internship program in our development team. Andreas is an educated physicist from Aarhus University, and he is currently teaching physics at Aarhus Statsgymnasium.
“I wanted to have my internship program at GPower because I have a great interest for both software and hardware. During my studies, I have also used LabVIEW myself in terms of managing and collecting data from measuring instruments and I can gain a lot more insight into that by being a part of GPower’s development team.” – Andreas Boes Jakobsen
An Exhaustive Know of LabVIEW
With a background in physics, Andreas already has an exhaustive knowledge of the programming language LabVIEW from the course “Management and Data Collection” he had in his 6th semester. Andreas will build on this knowledge during his internship where he also will pass a CLAD certification (Certified LabVIEW Associate Developer).
“At GPower, we look forward to see what Andreas can contribute with when it comes to physics. Besides computer software, much of our work involves measuring and creating physical signals. Here, we believe that Andreas’ background as a physicist can be extremely valuable. That said, we also look forward to have someone with a different technical background joining us experienced engineers”. – Steen Secher Schmidt, founder and CTO, GPower.
New Strategy Calls for New Types of Developers
In line with our new strategy, we have started looking broader for candidates for our development team. Previously, we have been looking specifically for engineers with experience in LabVIEW programming, but now our focus has changed. Now, we are also looking for engineers with experience in other programming languages, physicists, mathematicians and the like. For instance, from March 1, 2018, we have employed another physicist for our development team.
