Courtney's experience on our graduate program

Give your tech career a flying start

Our graduate program gives STEM graduates an accelerated route into the software industry.

Over 12 months, you’ll gain an understanding of every part of the business. You’ll get a solid grounding in all aspects of our products, but also specialize in the areas you find most interesting.

Who are we looking for?

If you enjoy working in teams, sharing knowledge and improving through collaboration, you should think about applying. If you’re a self-starter who’s eager to make contributions from day one, you should definitely apply. You don’t need JavaScript experience, but you should enjoy using programming skills to solve difficult problems.

You’ll get experience in a growing technology company, at the forefront of a rapidly emerging market. You’ll also learn what happens beyond the development team: sales, product management, marketing, and customer success to name a few.

What makes our program unique?

As a graduate, you’ve got a lot of options. Our program will appeal to those with an independent mind and entrepreneurial spirit. Here’s what makes our graduate opportunities unique:

avoid the corporate scrum image

Avoid the corporate scrum

There’s a lot of big graduate programs around – preparing thousands of students for a life of office politics, glass ceilings and corporate ladders.

We’re a different option. You won’t have to wear a suit, or worry about bureaucracy. We work in small, fast and supportive teams and reward ideas, innovation and success.

come out of the shadows

Come out of the shadows

Some programs consign graduates to the shadows: following a mentor for 6 months then building pretend products for pretend customers. Not ours.

As a Cambridge Intelligence graduate you’ll be part of the team, writing code to be shipped and working to achieve solutions for our customers. We want to hear your ideas, and will help you turn them into reality.

Training, support and mentorship

For the duration of your graduate program (and beyond) we’ll make sure you’ve got the support and guidance you need.

When you start, you’ll be assigned a buddy – someone you can call on to ask questions, raise problems and discuss ideas. You’ll meet at least once a month, but can schedule more time whenever needed. You’ll also have regular catch-ups with the program manager and your line manager.

Your schedule will be arranged to dedicate about 40% of your time to learning something new, incorporating self-study, formal learning, hands-on coding and attending external courses and conferences.
