Internship programme

We run an internship programme for three months over the summer for undergraduates, postgraduates, and those after a career change.

The aim of our internship programme is to give you something to take away to future interviews and talk about because it’s something you’ve been involved in from start to finish. You’d be able to say which parts went well and what, in hindsight, you would have done differently. You’ll also get a feel for the business process behind a project which will be useful when applying for future employment.

WHY WORK WITH US?

We’re a small tech company interested in doing cool things with data. Though we are not a data science company, we are focused on making data usable and accessible through applications, so if that’s something you’re keen on, we’d love to hear from you.

For the past four years, we’ve run an internship programme for three months over the summer for undergraduates, post-graduates and those after a career change. We don’t have a specific number of interns we take, it varies from year to year depending on how many of us are available to supervise.

What kinds of things will I be doing?

It depends. We try to fit you with a project that you’re interested in and have some skills to be able to complete, but that you’ll also learn some new skills. It could be anything from building a UI, modelling some data, writing APIs or a bit of all of the above

When does it start?

We’re flexible with start dates. As long as your mentor has available time to supervise then we’ll try to be as accommodating to you as possible

What’s the duration?

Most commonly our internships last around 12 weeks, but we’re flexible to what you need

HOW TO APPLY

OUR APPLICATION PROCESS IS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHT FORWARD

We ask for you to send us your CV, a cover letter and a sample of code you’ve written

We don’t mind what language you use in this sample of code.
We also ask for a brief explanatory note around the code, so we know what we’re looking at.

We review all applications and select a shortlist for a phone or Skype interview

We’re not asking for the code you’ve sent us to be perfect; we are looking at how you approach a project.

We’ll let you know – normally via email – whether we can offer you an internship.

We’d never ghost anyone who takes the time to apply, so you will always hear back from us whether we can offer you a place or not.

REGISTER YOUR INTEREST
