Intern in Technical Consultant Team, based in Meudon, France
Wafa Ben Hamouda
Student at ENSIMAG, Major in Telecom, Grenoble, France.
Wafa joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
"I’m working alongside a senior consultant in French banking products, handling big projects from specifying customers’ needs to delivering functional credit cards.
The assignments may be technical (realize and validate electrical profiles for credit cards, modify specifications etc.) or concern project management, ensuring the follow-up of different migration or new card projects.
I’m working with a great team that I get along well with and they are always helping me, explaining to me the key factors of their job, answering my questions and giving me a lot of support and advice.
I’ve been facing big responsibilities from the beginning of my internship and I’m not really treated as an intern but more as a full member of the team which I think may accelerate the process of learning new skills and discovering different aspects of the work.
I also appreciate the opportunities of learning new aspects about the job of a Technical Consultant and working with a multicultural team of five different nationalities. This Cultural diversity is definitely one of Gemalto’s mottos."
Intern in Handset Application R&D team in Singapore
Chai Chun Kiat
Student at Nanyang Technological University, Major in Computer Science, Singapore.
Chun Kiat joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
"I am mostly involved in development and validation of Android application and library.
I am currently working on GMCC project for the handset library under scrum project management methodology.
Needless to say, I have learnt a lot about the development of Android applications. I have also acquired more knowledge in validation and verification in the development process.
I have also come to know about the development process of a project, and the lifecycle of a project. As Gemalto has high expectation on security of the products, it is challenging to take into consideration this aspect of the application in its development.
Working across different teams is interesting as I get to see how the project is managed from a wider angle, and how the application is contributing as a whole solution.
The environment makes it easy to have informal discussion with team members about technical difficulties faced or even interesting discoveries made. People in Gemalto are friendly so it is easy to have a conversation with anyone, whether it’s about technical difficulties or otherwise."
Intern in M2M Team, Beijing, China
Student at Beijing University of Post and Telecommunications, Major in Computer Science, China.
Li Zhiang joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
"My responsibility in the M2M team combines software & hardware development, and includes designing and implementing features of M2M modules, Java Virtual Machine porting, software maintenance etc. This gives me a wide range of knowledge since I need to know details from various layers, including driver layer, protocol stack and application layer.
My manager is from Poland. He assigns work according the progress of my competencies. I feel that my manager cares and knows about my status. He has a plan for my development and he is supporting me to reach each milestone he sets.
Gemalto is a company that really cares about the development of interns. For example, we have opportunities to rotate through teams focused on software, hardware, and on different layers."
Intern in Gemalto Global Services, Bogota, Colombia
Carolina Gonzalez Rodriguez
Student at Escuela Colombiana de Ingeniería Julio, Garavito, Bogota, Colombia.
Carolina joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
I´m in the Business Efficiency, GGS. I support the execution of audits of Support and Maintenance, reviewing quality parameters in the delivery of projects, conducting research and indentifying improvement opportunities.
Gemalto is a place where I can improve my abilities and skills, contribute with my knowledge and my aptitudes and where I can learn from the company and people who belong to it.
It is interesting and challenging being in a company with a non-familiar business. Sometimes it is more comfortable working in something that you already know about, but for me it has been exciting and passionate to be able to understand the meaning of digital security.
What I appreciate the most is that the company's main priority is its employees' well-being, considering them as its greatest asset.
The story I want to share is a Team meeting we had in June 2013. It was very touching, fulfilling and fun to have the opportunity to meet people in person. We exchanged colloquial expressions of each region (Argentina, Mexico and Colombia) because, even though all of us speak Spanish, we use words that have different meanings in each country. This is an example of Gemalto’s multiculturalism."
Intern in R&D Team in Singapore
Lee Yousheng Euston
Student at Nanyang Technological University, Major in Computer Science, Singapore.
Euston joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
"I am assigned in Singapore, Research and Development, Government Program Department, where I am developing and validating a Javacard application to ensure that the client’s specifications are met and that it would perform well in the field.
I have always wanted to work in a company which deals with IT security, to ensure that people’s interests are safeguarded. I have also dreamed of creating stuff, developing things that might start a new trend, instead of doing server maintenance and such like.
Walking around my university career fair, I chanced upon Gemalto’s booth which seemed to me that it satisfied these two dreams of mine, so I decided to apply for it and managed to get the internship opportunity.
I have learnt how the research and development teams function and how to work as a team handling the same project. I also learnt more about working life as this is more or less my first experience of actual office work. It not only requires me to learn the tools of the trade but also to apply them to develop a product at the end of the day. And knowing that your work during internship might be an actual product in the future is kind of gratifying."
Intern in Human Resources Department, Sao Paulo, Brazil
Student at Mackenzie Presbyterian University, Major in Psychology, São Paulo, Brazil.
Mayara joined the company in 2013 as an intern and is now an employee.
"I have done many things that HR is responsible for in Gemalto like support and follow-up on recruitments , training and development, organization of HR events, internal communication, etc.
My manager lets me participate with her in the activities that I can learn and help the HR team. She encourages me to be involved and be aware of the major HR processes. Since I've been here, I’ve been learning everyday! I have the opportunity to give my suggestions and opinions about everything and I’m free to create and innovate. I feel that I really make a difference!
As an intern, I think that Gemalto makes us more than we think we are. During the tasks we are confronted with new challenges in each situation and it makes us to grow up.
I believe that a company without values and pillars can’t be a good company. Gemalto’s values (Customers, People, innovation) and the 8 HR pillars are what I most appreciate."
