Software Internship – Embedded Software for Automotive Applications - Firmware
Paid internship at NXP Semiconductors · Starts after academic term
  • – Embedded & Internet of Things
  • – Software technologies in Automatic Control, Industrial And Systems Engineering
  • – Telecommunications
  • room București

You will develop high quality embedded system-level firmware software for our embedded microcontrollers and processors following automotive standards. The firmware uses the accelerators that are part of NXP’s next generation platforms for the automotive market.

You will be part of the software team working on the products that will power the autonomous cars of tomorrow. You will learn about embedded software programming as part of our projects on device drivers and operating systems, interact with leading global experts for automotive technologies and get familiar with quality standards and models required in the automotive industry.

Some of the technologies developed in Romania include device drivers and integrated embedded solutions, firmware for communication accelerators, software stacks (TouchSense, NFC, CAN, LIN, etc), real time operating systems, security software, Linux operating systems and ADAS radar and vision software development kits.


  • Embedded programming (ANSI C);

  • General CPU/Computer architecture know-how;

  • Debugging skills for embedded targets and low level software;

  • English language (spoken and written). Romanian language knowledge is also needed.

A typical day involves at least one of:

  • Interacting with real embedded engineers and work and during coffee breaks, using Romanian and English languages - attn: involves laughing, from time to time;

  • Learning about a modern processor architecture;

  • Writing embedded C code, perhaps a bit of assembly language;

  • Brushing up on makefiles and python skills for automating;

  • Understanding how to use in software a hardware communication peripheral;

  • Getting skilled in using a debugger probe to study bugs and profiling information for embedded target device;

  • Finally figuring out why architecting software is a must before jumping on heedlessly writing code.
