Bike loving embedded software developer

Salary Unpaid

Let us take bike power meters to the next level. There is so much that can be improved and we have just the right project for you if you are training on a bike and also an experienced embedded software developer. Having pioneered several innovations in bike power meter technology, we are gearing up to take some small and also some pretty bold steps. If you want to be part of this, you should get on board now.

Learning new things is guaranteed with this job and SYMBION is a great place for expanding your network both professionally and personally. This job is an unpaid internship for at least 8 weeks - if you want a fully salaried job this may also be available (in another listing), but only for a very experienced developer.

Apply if you are good at

  • Structured embedded C design, implementation, test, and documentation

  • Low power and wireless systems

  • Algorithm development and cycle efficient implementation

Depending on your skills and interests, you may also do PC application development, app development, and/or server-side development.


Excellent English or a decent Danish is required.

We are looking for someone who

  • Trains on a bike and understands why power meters are cool

  • Is structured and detail-oriented

  • Has a positive attitude

  • Is dependable and gets things done

  • Self-motivated and ambitious

It would be a plus if you have experience with ARM processors, Microchip processors, ANT+ or Bluetooth Low Energy protocols, CAN bus, Nordic Semiconductor nRF51/52 frameworks, Jenkins build server, Git, and a good sense of electronics at the schematic level.

Some practical information:

  • The office is in the SYMBION office park on Østerbro

  • Facilities as per the icons below

  • As a small startup, we can be very flexible on most parameters as long as we keep focus on creating real results


Your internship is for at least 8 weeks. We expect you to work at the office near full-time and will treat you as any other employee. We really want to make sure you get something out of this. We are flexible in finding a solution that works for you.

Following an internship, we have previously had great success turning this into a salaried position. This would be an ideal scenario and we are only looking for interns, who would be interested in a longer-term position although we can't guarantee anything at this point (tough realities of a startup, sorry). Either way, we always want our interns to get one step closer to getting that "real" job, and judging by the stats we have been good at it so far.


Simply send a CV and a short note explaining why this would be fun for you. There is no set deadline and we normally process applications on a weekly basis.

Team ZWATT (by SENSITIVUS gauge)

Get more out of your training on a bike with a bike power meter. This technology measures the watts put into the pedals, which is the important metric for efficient training. Team ZWATT sells aftermarket crank-based bike power meters directly to consumers (B2C) at great pricing with more features and top performance. Developed in Denmark. Manufactured in Germany/Latvia/China. SENSITIVUS sells the technology (B2B) to allow easy integration by crankset manufacturers. And owns the Team ZWATT brand. Our background Back in 2013, we started building bike power meters based on patented optical sensor technology from Danish Technical University. This sensor technology turned out to be not quite mature, so we devoted ourselves to the known and very well-proven strain-gauge technology. We are passionate about two things: technology and cycling. Bike power meter products are a great combination of the two – incredibly hard to fully master all the details of the technology involved, yet so simple. Our first product was the core technology – electronics and software and we sell that to brands who want to integrate power meters into their product lines. In 2016 we decided to take the technology to the next level by building power meters for the end user as well. Through a quite successful crowdfunding campaign, two power meter products were developed. Inspiration The cycling industry has taught us a bunch of things about power meters and we instantly knew what we wanted to change: Testing by pro riders may be extreme in power and intensity, but it’s not as diverse as the riders actually buying the products. The difference between power meter algorithms surfaces when they are put in real-life situations. Results generated by the pro riders testing our technology for the brands is not nearly good enough for us. Team ZWATT We think differently. So, we decided to take a new approach and base our product development on crowdsourced data from our users and introduced the world’s first subscription-based power meters. Why? Because we want better algorithms, better prices, better products that work better for your style of riding. We started our Kickstarter campaign to make an open and super diverse test team for power meter testing. But we don’t stop there. We still want testers of all types, riding all types of bikes, on all types of terrain to join the growing test team for power meter technology.
