Software Engineering Internship (m/f/d)

We are looking for a Software Engineering Intern (part- or full-time) to join our Research & Development team.

One of our projects is a .NET 6-based desktop application for commissioning our servo drives, originally developed using WinForms. To improve stability, usability, and modernize its interface, we are transitioning key components to WPF. This refactoring is part of a broader strategy to enhance the application's customer orientation and streamline its deployment.

  • Develop user interfaces and ensure they meet modern usability standards.
  • Participate in discussions to define clear requirements and workflows for the refactored application.
  • Contribute to reducing the complexity of the application by focusing on essential tools and functionalities.
