Gliwa provides timing instrumentation and analysis software to the automotive industry. One of our biggest challenges is the burden of supporting many software platforms for many customers.Gliwa are based at the Catalyst, York Science Park, which is on the University of York’s Campus East.
Gliwa were introduced to the University of York’s Student Internship Bureau through a partnership developed between York Science Park and Make It York, Connect Over Coffee. Connect Over Coffee runs bi-monthly and supports both York Science Park residents and other local businesses.
Gliwa intended to recruit an intern to repair and extend their multi-platform test and to relieve a software development load, as well as to learn about internship opportunities at the University as a way to support recruitment.
By hiring an intern through the Student Internship Bureau, Gliwa benefited from completing a business critical task, a fun, bonus project and experience of closed work packages. We found the experience to be very positive and particularly enjoyed the new experience and perspective that hiring a student intern brought. Nicholas Merriam, Gliwa Ltd
