Internship: Join a software development team



Seeing ideas become a reality: it sounds nice but it really does happen at Voortman Steel Machinery. And these are ground-breaking ideas. We make the most innovative machinery and product lines for the steel construction and plate-processing industry for customers around the world. Going through the process together with a customer in order to arrive at a production line that integrates seamlessly into his process. Regardless of how often we do it, it is special each time and provides a great deal of satisfaction.

Our team consists of driven Software Engineers. A dedicated and enthusiastic group of people who are there for one another. We really are partners. We know where to find one another quickly and are happy to think collaboratively. We work in close collaboration with our Mechanical and Electrical Engineer colleagues in one room, bringing out the best in one another. We are also keen to share our knowledge with one another: we organize lunch & learn sessions monthly, known as katas.

As an intern or graduate you will be given space to develop yourself, both personally and in terms of your specialism. You really are a part of the team and will get all the support you need from your colleagues. You work independently and show initiative. Furthermore, you will have the freedom and at the same time take responsibility to structure and execute your research as you wish.


Wouldn’t it be great to be part of one of our development teams at our Software department? Learn from the best and work on diverse topics during your internship. You’ll learn for example about using MVVM in WPF applications, the joy of working with new technologies and the pain of wrong decisions in the past and how to deal with those today. You will take part in all the aspects of working as a software developer in a development team: the meetings, coding new functionality and deadlines.
