ESP32 programmer summer job Enviro365 (Aberystwyth)

I have been contacted by Tony Powell ( regarding their need for someone to do some Summer work on an IoT project. The have set an initial deadline for expressions of interest March 14th. They are based on the Aber Innovation Campus.

As discussed we are looking to undertake the following and have the need for a programmer to progress the sensors as follows :

Project Profile. (Aqua Eye)

An esp32 based microprocessor that communicates over LoRaWAN.
The Microprocessor has a range of sensors below feeding information through a dac converter.
The output is then forwarded via WAN to a front end web page where the data can be read

Our requirements

Looking for someone with experience of LoRaWAN and C++ that can take our outputs which we currently have running from the processor displayed on screen via Ardunio IDE and programme the device to output via lowran to the web as a readable format.

The sensor types and manufacture name are identified below

DF Robot – Analogue to Dissolved Oxygen (DO)Sensor
DF Robot – Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Sensor
Optical Turbidity Sensor
PH Sensor
Phosphate Sensor
Nitrate sensor

What we have achieved to date

Providing a coms route from an esp32 outputting through SMS on alarm conditions. But for this project we would like to use a base station and LoRaWAN to reduce the costs of sim cards as part of the system.

Future Scope

To date we are finding it very difficult to get someone with experience and therefore are looking for a long term commitment once we have the initial program sorted to help develop the range of sensors as we expand.

12 month IY Placement – GE Aviation Software Engineering, Cheltenham

GE Aviation Software Engineering – 12 Month Industrial Year Placement, Cheltenham

There are IY placements available at GE Aviation. David Adejumo, one of our graduates, works there and he has been in touch to encourage applications from Aberystwyth. They have had Aber IY students before. There are some Aberystwyth Alumni working at GE, 2 of which work at the Cheltenham site.


David says that he thinks (but he isn’t 100% certain) that the IY positions would be in the R&D team. The role talks about hands-on software development and coding experience. A number of languages are listed – which you will have experience of. They are also interested in people with embedded software backgrounds, but that isn’t a requirement.




If you have questions about this, David’s email is

Junior Web Developer – Net World Sports

Dear students looking for an IY,

I have just received this email. We have had students at Net World Sports (in Wrexham) in previous years, and I’ve visited. It seemed to me to be a very good placement, in a friendly atmosphere. The student I saw there did mention that own transport was very useful (it’s on the outskirts of town) so perhaps bear that in mind.

Details in attachment.
