Who is Cambridge Intelligence?

We’re a team of data visualization experts. With our graph visualization toolkit, we help organizations to make an intelligent visual analysis of their data and ‘join the dots’ within it.

Using our data visualization tools, it’s quick and easy to build powerful data visualization applications, roll them into analysts’ tools and workflows, and deploy them anywhere in the world.

What’s the role about?

Right from the start, you’ll be given the opportunity to work on projects that will ship to customers. You will receive mentoring from our team and learn about producing quality software products.

You’ll get to design and code features for our data-visualization toolkit, and become involved in all aspects of software development including: proof of concepts and prototyping, product demonstrations, data investigation, integration with other products and product testing.

You’ll also get to spend time with the product management, customer success, and pre-sales functions to understand the business more broadly. Plus, you have the freedom to work on you own project every Friday.

In short…

  • Designing and coding new features for our KeyLines API
  • Prototyping/creating single page web applications in JavaScript
  • Building intuitive visual designs and web interfaces

Who’s the ideal candidate?

Do you want to contribute exciting new features to an emerging technology?

Do you want the chance to solve complex engineering challenges in your first year that some developers might never attempt in their entire careers?

We’re looking for STEM graduates to take ownership of features and stories that will help us build the next-generation of data-visualization products. You should be a team player, who enjoys learning from more experienced team members, sharing knowledge with peers and collaborating with everyone.
