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.

Internship

Get a feel for life as a professional digital engineer, building real-world software. Under the guidance of experienced developers, our interns form teams to create commercial-grade applications. This might be for a client, or a pro bono project or addressing a need within Softwire.

Summer internships last 8-10 weeks, starting in June or July. Let us know what dates would work for you when you apply and we’ll do our best to work something out. We recruit and interview all year round, but places do fill up and we strongly recommend you apply in the first term of the academic year. Prior experience is preferable but not essential.

Many of our interns go on to join Softwire permanently, taking up a graduate developer role after completing their studies. We hope you will too, so we reserve our internships for those who haven’t yet accepted employment elsewhere.

Summer internship salary is £28,000 per annum equivalent.

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
