At StarLeaf, we are committed to working with bright, aspiring software and hardware engineers to introduce them to the working environment and give them a taste of what it means to be part of the StarLeaf team. We aim to ensure they return to their studies with a richer skill set and a good understanding of developing real-world solutions.
With several intakes each year at our Cambridge and Watford offices, we aim to make our intern experience as close as possible to that of a full-time member by providing valuable understanding of how a software engineering team functions in a commercial environment whilst, at the same time, interns give us an insight into their potential as a future full-time StarLeaf employee.

"I worked independently on my project a lot of the time, although my project mentor was at the desk next to mine and I could draw on their knowledge and experience (as well as that of my team) as needs be if I ran into any challenges"
