Internships

Get real-world software development experience

Your career with us

Paid internships in Cambridge, UK

Our software development summer internships are for people ready to get involved and make a difference to how we work.

You’ll never be asked to make the tea or do the filing. You’ll be part of the team, and given guidance and support to help shape the future of our products. You’ll work on a variety of activities, including building proof of concepts, doing data investigation, integrating our technology with other products, product testing and support.

We’re no longer accepting applications for 2020. Applications for 2021 will open in November 2020.

Why choose an internship at Cambridge Intelligence?



Earn some cash

All of our internships are paid. You’ll earn £350 a week.

Get hands-on experience

You’ll be hands-on from the beginning, writing real product code.

Work with mentors

Work with a buddy, your go-to person for help, support and guidance.

Experience real projects

Work with our customers, shipping code and solving their problems.



What’s the role about?

You’ll be involved in all aspects of software development including prototyping, product demonstrations, and product testing.

Working with our data visualization software, you’ll help design and build new demos and features. Your best work will even be shipped to customers.

Our whole team will become your mentors, but you’ll also be assigned a buddy – someone to help you learn about building quality software products. On Fridays, you’ll have the freedom to work on your own projects – a chance to try new things and learn new skills.

Are you the right fit?

We’re looking for people who

  • Are able to program effectively (experience in any language is fine)
  • Are curious about new technologies.
  • Can collaborate and communicate well within a team

Bonus skills

We’re especially keen to speak to students who

  • Are familiar with JavaScript and its frameworks
  • Have a strong interest in, or experience with, data visualization

Meet our interns

Every summer for the last 6 years, we’ve welcomed interns to our team. And without fail, we’re blown away by how smart and enthusiastic they are. The class of 2019 was no exception.



Peter Semrau-Boughton

Software Engineer

“The standards here are high, which means I’ve been learning from the highest-quality code. I have a solid grounding in the whole web development environment now. My time here has really widened my career options.”

Michael Barlow
Pre-sales Engineer

“Everybody here is so involved in the trajectory of the business. From the CEO down, everyone’s completely open about the company’s future plans and understands the role they play. That isn’t something you can get from most other internships.”

Simon Beal
Software Engineer

“This was my first role in a commercial environment, and I didn’t know what to expect. But there were points during my time here where I’ve found myself at my desk saying ‘I’m getting paid for this, and I’m enjoying myself’ – that must be a good sign.”

Toby Drane
Software Engineer

“The real benefit of an internship here is, unlike other software companies, we work on real projects and products, for real customers. I felt like I had a voice and my ideas were valued.”
