  • Responsibilities


    GE Appliances provides learning opportunities, challenges, and support for software engineers. We are applying the latest techniques in software development such as Agile, TDD, Continuous Integration, and Testing Automation to the embedded software field. Every day, we push ourselves to find innovative solutions, produce higher quality code, and deliver it on schedule.



    • We're a small to medium sized team located in Louisville and Seoul (most full-time developers have had the opportunity to travel to Seoul
    • We develop in C (production code) and scripting languages like Lua and JavaScript (tooling)
    • We work in a resource-constrained environment with (generally) no heap, and primarily run bare metal but some projects use an RTOS
    • We use the industry-leading version control system Git
    • We are Agile!
    • We're heavily invested in Test Driven Development (TDD) which is a great way to work
    • We use continuous integration to automate builds and identify issues quickly
    • We're invested in continuous learning and full time developers have the opportunity to attend software conferences
    • MacBook Pros are available to all developers in Louisville and the vast majority choose to use a Mac
    • We're doing a lot of work towards making connected appliances - this means creating both highly debuggable platforms for development as well as enabling Internet of Things (IoT) functionality
    • Co-ops receive targeted training from seasoned engineers and participate in projects to develop them into well-rounded software engineers
    • Co-ops will write production code, participate in the design process, and will work alongside full-time engineers; this is not an opportunity to sit in the corner and run tests
    • GE Appliances has a large co-op community with leadership and social opportunities
    • No two rotations are the same, our co-ops work in varied teams and environments to get a wide array of experiences
    • The software team is the best team - we have a relaxed dress code, great bosses, two arcade machines, and a ping pong table that gets a lot of use
    • We're heavily invested in our co-op program because we're looking to build great Edisons so that we can build great engineers
    • Prior knowledge/experience is great, but what we value most is someone who is passionate and can learn
    • GE Appliances will not sponsor applicants for work visas for this position now nor in the future
