Maxar

Are you looking for a summer internship where you can acquire valuable experience by being a part of the journey to create a world unique “Globe in 3D” based on satellite imagery? Would you like to learn and develop your skills while working with cutting edge technology together with highly competent colleagues in a global context?

Maxar Intelligence is currently looking for summer interns to join the R&D center in Linköping.​

What you’ll do day-to-day (with your colleagues):

Maxar Intelligence uses a lot of CPU heavy processing to generate 3D geodata. For the purpose of optimizing this process Maxar Intelligence wants to evaluate tools for measuring and analyzing different aspects of CPU utilization. This includes memory, I/O, thread and cache usage. The goal is to help Maxar Intelligence developers to find points where a process is not running as fast as possible.

This could be done by e.g. generating graphs showing which resources a particular process is using over time. Such graphs will make is easier to find points where optimization would be most useful. Many tools exists that could be useful for this, but work is needed to see which are suitable in the particular environment used at Maxar.

Who you are

To be successful at Maxar Intelligence you need to be a team player and enjoy cooperating with others. You are curious as a person and have the ability of critical thinking and a strong interest in solving problems.

Preferred qualifications
  • Master of science student
  • Comfortable with Linux and the terminal
