Firmware Engineering Intern

Atlanta, GA (On-Site)
Applications are considered on a rolling basis


Endeavour has an exciting opportunity for a Firmware Engineering Intern to take part in our Summer Internship Program. The Firmware Engineering Intern is a vital member of Endeavour’s “GigaGrid” team. We are looking for someone who can support the efforts in designing cutting-edge smart grid products that accelerates the clean energy transition.

The Firmware Engineering Intern needs to be agile, professional, and comfortable in a rapidly changing environment. The right person is trustworthy with confidential information, highly organized, self-motivated, has excellent communication skills, can think strategically, and works equally as well independently as with a team. Endeavour strives to maintain smooth operations. We achieve this by empowering our people, by providing autonomy and flexibility in the way we work, by developing a habit of constant, open communication, and by creating a culture of excellence, appreciation, trust, and respect.

Endeavour is the main hub—a self-sustaining incubation platform for innovation—within a larger ecosystem focused on sustainable infrastructure. It provides the space, time, and all necessary resources to take advanced technologies from ideation through development to launch. At Endeavour, we are highly selective about the people we bring on board because our ecosystem depends on it. Change happens quickly here, and we must be able to trust one another to be honest, communicative, strategic, reliable, and driven. We seek ultra-creatives and superstar performers with a sense of humility and a hunger to make positive change. Endeavour offers flexibility and endless growth opportunities to those who can harness their skills and talents and identify how and where to use them to add value. Growth at Endeavour means expanding outward, not upward, because there is no corporate ladder here to climb. Your path is in your hands, and Endeavour’s team is here to support you! At the heart of our ecosystem is a diverse group of bright, passionate, dedicated people, working together to make a real difference. Are you ready to join the journey?

The GigaGrid product team is developing a plug-and-play framework for monitoring and controlling the power grid. The GigaGrid framework consists of low-cost edge-computing nodes that can interface with geo-dispersed assets and work autonomously. The smart nodes can work in bandwidth constrained environments, using flexible communication pathways to the GigaGrid backend. The GigaGrid product lines revolve around solutions for grid monitoring, control and automation that can help to optimize grid operations as the adoption of distributed energy resources, such as solar, batteries, and electric vehicles, grows dramatically. The GigaGrid product team consists of engineers who are seeking creative, motivated team members to help them take innovative ideas and turn them into tangible solutions.
