We are currently looking for 2020 Interns to join our software engineering team based in Watford, on the outskirts of North London. Please apply now to express an interest.

We will be attending a lot of careers fairs between now and the end of the year, if you see us, please do come and say hello.

The Role

As an Intern in one of our software engineering groups, you will be assigned an experienced software engineer as your mentor and be given a desk within the group. We will identify a project suited to your level of experience that will deliver a feature or a tool that is directly applicable to our business. We will aim to make your experience as an intern as close as possible to that of a full-time member of our team, so that you gain a valuable understanding of how a software engineering team functions in a commercial environment whilst, at the same time, we have an insight as to your potential as possible future full-time StarLeaf employee.

Our software teams design and implement complex systems across a wide range of technologies and programming languages including C, C#, C++, Java, Python, SQL, and Javascript. We make extensive use of continuous integration and deployment methodologies based on tools such as Salt, Jenkins, pytest, Catch, and homegrown automated system test frameworks, with an emphasis on high quality, well-tested code and a quick turnaround time for adding new features to our products. We believe that this is an ideal environment for you to take your first steps in commercial software engineering.

  • You have started studying for a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Natural Sciences or a related discipline.
