Software Internships 2017 (10 weeks)

“I’ve learnt lots. I haven’t been side-lined off. I was thrown in straight away, coding by day two on real codebases! I’ve been trusted to get on and do good work, with help and support as and when I’ve needed it.”  Matt Harrison, Software Intern 2016

We’re looking for eight software interns to join us for ten weeks in July 2017.

Redgate aspires to be the best place you’ll ever work, let alone intern. We strongly believe being an intern isn’t about watching people working, it’s about doing real work from day one, on things that make a real difference.

As a fully-fledged member of one of our development teams, you will work on real features and get the opportunity to see it all through to the very end, so you know you’ve made a real difference. As a result, you’ll experience how our development teams go about creating software, including the design, implementation, and testing of features.

Interns work in small, autonomous teams with software engineers, usability experts, and a technical lead to create elegant commercial software; teamwork is very important to us.  You will have a dedicated mentor to help you through your internship, answer any questions, and make sure you have a great time.

To learn more about what it’s like to work at Redgate, take a look at our blog.

To apply, simply upload your CV and covering letter or get in touch if you’d like to talk to us first.

What we’ll offer you

  • A chance to work with an experienced agile development team.

  • We’ll help develop you into a software expert, shaping requirements and estimates, writing great code and shipping features.
  • We’ll cultivate your technical knowledge with design patterns, test-driven development, peer-review, code katas and more.

What makes you redgate’s next software intern?

  • You’re naturally bright-eyed and bushy-tailed with a passion for software.
  • You have a profound understanding of the value of teamwork.
  • You’re at least a year into your university degree, studying a relevant discipline.
  • You have an excellent academic record or you have demonstrable technical aptitude.
  • Your grades haven’t been affected by your extra-curricular exploits with your favourite coding languages.

What’s the package?

  • You’ll be working 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday, with flexible hours
  • You’ll receive £380 per week
  • You’ll start in July for a minimum of ten weeks over the summer holiday

The Redgate Recruitment process

Step 1

Step 1. Application

Step one is your application. So write a letter and upload it on the page for the job you’re interested in. Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and talk about why you’d like to work at Redgate. Include a CV, or a link to your LinkedIn page, and if you'd like to show some of your work, attach your portfolio or point us to Stack Overflow or GitHub.

Step 2

Step 2. Assessment

We’ll acknowledge your application straight away, review it and keep you updated on your progress. We might also email an assessment to complete, or invite you for a brief telephone interview. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we’ll inform you – and tell you why. We won’t let you down, we’ll try and help you.

Step 3

Step 3. 1st Interview

Step three is an interview in our Cambridge office. We’ll talk about your work history, your covering letter or video, and any assessments you’ve completed. You might also be asked to do some work-based tests and, if you’re applying for a technical role, expect technical questions – we love talking tech.

Step 4

Step 4. 2nd Interview

The second interview typically lasts two hours. You’ll be talking to different people, you may well meet people you’ll be working with, and we’ll allow time for you to ask questions. We don’t have a dress code at Redgate, by the way, so dress in whatever makes you comfortable.

Step 1

Step 5. Offer

If we think you’d be great at Redgate, we’ll make an offer and iron out any details like relocation issues. If we don’t think you’ll fit in right away, we’ll tell you why. Some people have taken our advice, boned up their knowledge and come back a year later and got a job. It helps.

This is our typical recruitment process, though for some roles it might be a bit different.
