Scott Logic builds large-scale, bespoke, business-critical systems for some of the world’s most high-profile organisations. With our annual internship you can enjoy a summer season being paid to sample a challenging and rewarding career in software.

You’ll spend around 12 weeks learning from smart, highly-capable people in a collaborative environment that encourages the sharing of knowledge and experience. You’ll build on the knowledge you’ve gained at university and begin to apply it in a real-world setting, learning new things and working with cutting-edge technologies along the way. And we hope you’ll forge a longer term relationship with us that will see you return to our graduate programme after you complete your degree.

Previous intern projects have been diverse, including:

  • Machine learning in the browser using Tensorflow.js for image recognition of products sold in a retail kiosk
  • Porting the Scratch programming language, used in schools to teach coding, to HTML5
  • A web-based display for our office reception area, providing useful and engaging visitor information, including imagery, video, Twitter feeds, blog posts and our Xbox FIFA tournament results
  • Creating a financial charting application on our open source D3FC library, to follow Bitcoin prices

To apply for the paid summer internship you need to be in the penultimate year of your degree, ideally in a computing, mathematical, engineering or scientific subject.

You should also have:

  • A Level or Higher grades of at least BBB or equivalent
  • The ability to adapt and learn new technologies whilst working as part of a team
  • A passion for software or technology
  • Great problem-solving skills
