For young professionals, gaining work experience while in school is absolutely critical. Rightware is committed to providing opportunities for students in the form of internships and part-time work. At Rightware, students have the opportunity to network with experienced professionals while acquiring new and relevant skills. Interns work on real-life projects, are exposed to established as well as ground-breaking technologies, and get a glimpse into what it's like to work with automotive industry giants and exciting new ventures. As a result of their experience, many students end up being hired full-time at Rightware after graduation.
At Rightware I have been able to develop my professional skills as I have been given continuously increasing responsibilities and diverse tasks that support my personal interests, knowledge, and education. In addition, the supportive work environment and flexibility with my own work hours have allowed me to focus on my studies alongside work.” - Jonathan, Accounting Operations Specialist
The opportunities at Rightware for students are as expansive as they are for any of our employees, ranging from visual design, 3D modeling, platform integration, and software development to finance, marketing, and much more. Some interns even have the chance to work on customer-facing projects.
It helped a lot to see what designers at Rightware do and at the same time learn from them and grow as a designer. It was a great opportunity to develop skills in many areas. I learned a lot about car UIs." - Teemu, Visual Designer
The working environment at Rightware is very flexible, yet achievement-oriented. Mentorship, teamwork, and real-world assignments provide a strong basis for professional and personal development.
I started to work at Rightware as an intern, after graduation. Working in the integration team, I was able to access many development boards and make use of the programming knowledge that I had learned during my schooling. I also learned a lot from my colleagues, who are experienced and always ready to help." - Thao, Junior Software Engineer
With customers from all over the world and colleagues from over 10 different nationalities, Rightware is an international workplace to the core. For interns, this translates to an exciting opportunity to dive into the life of a truly global company and to use English as their main working language.
Working in Sales has given me a diverse set of skills and valuable international work experience. Still, I feel that personal development is the most important outcome. I have gained confidence in my capabilities and my ability to tackle new challenges." - Viivi, Sales Assistant
