Engineering Program Manager Secure Transactions, Johannesburg
Graduated in Intelligent Industrial Systems from the Tshwane University of Technology in Pretoria in September 2014.
"I joined Gemalto Johannesburg as an intern in April 2014, and worked as an Engineering Program Manager in Telecoms and Secure Transactions during my internship. In each role, I worked on project installation, organizing projects from proposal to product data management, each time in a different business unit.
"When I first came to Gemalto, I have to say I knew nothing! I feel like I learned everything I now know through my job. When you're at university, you learn so much theory, but it's only when you enter the professional world and start to put that in practice that you realize how different the reality of the industry actually is.
"Arriving at Gemalto as an intern was amazing. Everybody was so welcoming, and the atmosphere among the team was fantastic. In fact, I recommended a friend apply to Gemalto for her internship because I was so bowled over by the experience, and she just started here, too.
"I became a permanent employee in March 2015, and although I now have much more work to do, I'm very happy because I love my job. I manage my own customers now, I have much greater responsibility, and I'm really enjoying the challenge. I cannot imagine working anywhere else."
Production Engineer Operations, São Paolo
Graduated in Computer Sciences from the Federal University of São Paolo in 2015.
"I took up an internship with Gemalto in São Paolo during my final year of studies, working as a trainee integrator in the GGS Delivery department. It was an incredible experience during which I worked closely with the team, installing and delivering Gemalto solutions to the customer. It was a fascinating introduction to how the telecommunications industry works.
"After I graduated, I was given a permanent post as Production Engineer Operations. My job is to maintain the operating platform, improving the quality, and ensuring the system functions properly 24/7.
"My job is both very interesting and extremely challenging. I love the task of developing custom solutions, as well as resolving problems and technical issues to ensure that our solution is always as good as it can possibly be.
"Gemalto is like a family – I really feel the company cares about me. When you need help, if you're having any difficulties, the whole team has your back and the company is very flexible when necessary.
"My internship taught me so much about how business works and about the mobile communications industry in general – it gave me all the bases I need for my present job. I'm extremely happy where I am today!"
Software Engineer, Multi-Sourcing, Makati, Philippines
Graduated in Computer Engineering from the Mapua Institute of Technology in Manila in 2015.
"I was one of the first interns to join Gemalto, back in 2014. I had to complete a nine-month internship requirement in order to graduate, but after three months I was offered a permanent position and I spent the following six months on probation. During my internship, I was responsible for managing the internal team website that is used for our project database in Makati.
"I became a permanent staff member in June 2015. In addition to managing the website, I also work on profiling SIM cards for our customers; programming, customizing, and updating them according to revised specifications.
"Before I joined Gemalto, I thought SIM cards were just bits of plastic you stick in your phone. Now I understand how essential they are to global communication and, as a result, to everyday life. I find it fascinating, and I'm always looking to learn more.
"Gemalto is a great place to work because they are very open to their employees, they take great care to get to know you personally, and they want to help when you have any problems. As a result, that makes you very open towards them, and in the end, it feels like a new family, guiding you towards success."
Associate Test Engineer, Noida
Graduated in Information Technology from Sharda University in Greater Noida in 2015.
"I was born in Kathmandu in Nepal, but I moved to India in 2011 to study. Then in February 2015, I began my internship in Gemalto Noida as a tester with the Encryption and Cryptography team. It was fascinating right from the start, and although I didn't have any real knowledge of product testing, I was able to begin with the basics and work my way up, getting to grips with the practical side of things. I learned one new programming language, then another, and got to work on Windows and Linux products.
"I was the last in that year's intake of interns to join Gemalto, but I never felt that I was at a disadvantage. I was assigned a buddy right away, and everyone was very welcoming. At Gemalto, you don't have to be afraid of not knowing something or making mistakes – that is part of the learning process and everyone is there to help. I then became a full-time Associate Test Engineer at Gemalto in July 2015.
"At university, they said that no student had ever been taken on as an intern by Gemalto, so I took that as a challenge. And I feel that although they looked at my grades, they were more interested in knowing how capable I was, and how much potential I had. What I learned at school was theoretical. But now, working full-time at Gemalto, I'm getting my hands dirty – and I love it!"
Java Software Engineer, Beijing
Graduated in Communication Engineering at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications in 2015.
"I joined Gemalto as an intern in April 2015, as part of the Java software team. My task involves both maintenance of existing projects as well as development of new products for the future and I love it. The job is perfect for me because it allows me to work on the things I studied in school, putting theory into practice.
"The software team in Beijing is made up of around 50 employees, but there are only five of us on the Java team. We sit together in our own part of the office and get on with our work. If we have problems, we talk them over, and that's very interesting. In fact, it's exactly how I imagined work would be.
"Everybody at Gemalto is extremely friendly. As a newcomer, I still have a lot to learn, but I'm lucky because working with some extremely experienced engineers who can teach me a lot. I'm the youngest in the team, but the others aren't much older than me – just wiser!
"My internship is about to finish and I hope to be taken on as a full-time employee. Gemalto is a very dynamic, very international company, and I want to learn more about this exciting industry and play my part in helping Gemalto succeed."
Device Engineering R&D, Meudon
Graduated in computer science at ENSIMAG in Grenoble in 2015.
"Part of my degree involved a mandatory six-month internship and I was lucky to secure a place on Gemalto's Device Engineering R&D team in Meudon. I began the placement in February, and worked on developing a plug-in device to secure data generated by vehicles, which is mainly used for commercial purposes, for diagnostics and localization.
"I was pleasantly surprised by the welcome I received from the team. At Gemalto, interns are treated like engineers, as if they are permanent members of staff. There's nothing temporary about it. My coworkers had no preconceived ideas, they respect interns and they understand that they are there to learn and to be taught.
"More than that, the team also respected the possibility that I might bring some new knowledge to the project. I'm not sure all my peers felt that in their internships with other companies.
"I was taken on as a permanent R&D software engineer in September 2015, and I'm really enjoying it. It's hard work, and the training is intensive but there's so much to learn and so many ways to use my knowledge – and I'm sure that's not always the case elsewhere. Gemalto is such a diverse company with a very international outlook. I'm very happy here."
