Software Development Internship

Softwire is an independent software company with offices in London, Manchester and Cambridge. They deliver innovative, high quality software solutions in a range of markets with clients including the BBC and Google DeepMind. Softwire have featured in The Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For list in each of the past ten years.

Softwire offer up to 30 internship places in London each year, mostly over the summer but with other dates available too.  Their internship programme is extremely popular with students, offering real-life, team-based software development work under the guidance of a dedicated mentor, and a salary of £2,300 per month.  Approximately half of Softwire interns go on to take up permanent employment after their studies end. 

Eligibility

A passion for solving real-world challenges: First and foremost, you’ll get a buzz from building things that make a difference to businesses, people and society. We also want to see passion for coding – any experience you have is a bonus

An articulate people-person: You’ll be interacting with a wide variety of individuals: some deeply techy, some from complex business domains, and others with low digital literacy. You’ll need to be comfortable understanding their needs and discussing potentially complex technical ideas with all of them

A positive, can-do team player: You love pushing the team to greater heights by helping colleagues out wherever you can. You always look to improve yourself and others. Your default answer to a question is ‘yes’, and you make big problems seem small
