两个哥哥都是软件工程师, 毫无疑问，佩妮拉·埃勒特是在那里找到灵感的. Her coding path started al读y as a child when she watched her brother develop gaming apps that they then programmed together. 但还有其他利益集团的影响更大. After she graduated high school, she moved to Paris to study Fashion Design and Haute Couture. 这个行业和软件设计没什么不同. 至少Pernilla是这么认为的.
“在时尚和IT行业工作实际上有几个相似之处. 两者都具有多样性，需要的耐心和准确性一样多. 在两种职业中, you get to try different techniques or technologies that you constantly learn from, 这是非常鼓舞人心的,”佩妮说.
她实现了童年时的梦想，成为一名时装设计师, 还有一个梦想. 这就是那个梦想, 再加上她对数学和编程的巨大热情, 最终她回到了瑞典.
在我完成了我的美术学士学位之后, 我开始回想我尝试编码的时候, 我真的很想念数学. So, I decided to go back home and continue developing this passion of mine," Pernilla continues.
During her fourth year of studying Science in Engineering and Computer Science at Linköping University, she attended a fair organized by the university where she met her former boss who told her about Saab. 她决定在夏天申请一份临时工作, 这导致她在同一个春天就开始了一份小时制的工作.
“在星际网赌导航的第一天，我就开始使用鹰狮的源代码. That really shows how much Saab believes and trusts their employees, right from the start."
After writing her master’s thesis about learning behaviour trees for simulated fighter pilots in airborne reconnaissance missions, 她得到了星际网赌导航公司提供的软件和系统工程师的工作. 和她的团队一起, 她现在正在开发鹰狮决策支持系统, 哪一个 provides support to the pilot in building situational awareness and in controlling the sensor suite. A job that involves designing, coding, testing, and verifying the solutions in simulators. 就像在现实生活中玩游戏一样.
“It’s very exciting to be involved in coding something that our pilots use the next day in real life.”
作为星际网赌导航的一名工程师，工作中没有平凡的一天. With several development opportunities and varied projects and teams, every day is different. 在星际网赌导航的两年半时间里, Pernilla有机会成为一名软件和系统工程师, 测试领导者, 和团队领导, 这让她有机会参与几个激动人心的项目.
“At Saab, you get the chance to shape your career path based on your own interests.”
"Our managers listen to our interests and make it possible for us to work in the areas we want to learn more about. It’s a great way to develop and learn from the experience of others,”佩妮说.
Working with such a complex product as Gripen in an environment where digital development is progressing rapidly is surely as exciting as it sounds. But being a System and Software Engineer at Saab, involves much more than just programming.
"Being a System and Software Engineer at Saab is also about planning how the solution can cooperate with the al读y existing system, from choosing the software design to figure out 哪一个 components are needed and 哪一个 layers to consider. It’s a very stimulating profession where you are constantly learning new things along the way. 这是我工作中最棒的部分."
最具挑战性的: 找到ing solutions to the problems we face and how to realize it in code and design.
给未来同事的最佳建议: 在找到正确的职业道路之前，选择不同的道路是可以的. Everything you learn through life and all the experiences you get, will always be useful.
At Saab we share a mission; to keep people and society safe. 是否建造潜艇, 销售战斗机或工程网络安全解决方案, 星际网赌导航的每个人都在做出积极的贡献. 在一个复杂和不可预测的世界里，我们都努力让人们感到更安全. 加入我们吧，带着一种真正的使命感.
我们的许多学生提供了新的领域, where you as a student will face fascinating challenges that can be of big importance for the company. We offer an stimulating and inspiring environment and great opportunities for you future career.
