Working at Amigo is not just a job, it's a cause. We believe that good people should be able to borrow fairly, flexibly and affordably, no matter what a computer credit score says.

By keeping things simple, we make life easier. We focus on what's important and nothing else, we solve real world problems, and we treat our customers and each other as humans

We're looking for enthusiastic and talented Software Development students who are looking to join a creative environment. We provide a supportive learning environment, offering you the chance to work alongside our Senior Developers, gaining hands on experience of the full project life-cycle.

You'll need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and work as part of a dynamic and agile team. We'll give you the support to grow, but you'll need the desire to show ownership of your development path.

What you'll need:

* Be a natural problem solver with the ability to find solutions for complex problems

* A desire to take ownership of your development

* Some experience of Object Orientated Development

* Honesty, if you make a mistake, don't cover it up or make excuses, admit it, learn from it and move on.

* The hunger and drive to progress and develop your skills.

What you'll do:

* You'll be involved in greenfield projects, as well as improvements to existing systems

* Work within a strong and influential engineering team.

* Work on projects to solve real life problems for our customers, colleagues and business throughout your placement.

* Gain experience in a wide range of programming practices such as MVC and CS html

* Gain full stack development with the ability to work in multiple stages within product development.

* Fully integrated within the business and team from day one. Continuously working towards real business development.

* Work along side industry professionals who will answer your questions and guide you as you develop your engineering skills.

What we offer:

* We give ownership, resources and responsibility to people and ask them to work hard and dedicate themselves to their role.

* Support and learning with clear and defined projects and development path.

* We'll provide you with a valuable insight into the life of a C# / ASP.NET developer. Our annual training budget (up to GBP3K per annum) will allow you the flexibility to arrange external courses, or group training in the office, to help accelerate your development.

* The opportunity to start a lasting career with a 'Sunday Times - Best Companies to Work For' employer, as many placement students have been offered graduate roles following a successful placement with Amigo. We give ownership, resources and responsibility to people and ask them to work hard and dedicate themselves to their role.

* Business Performance Bonus

* Health Care Policy

* Contributory Pension

* Free Gym Membership

* Google Style Offices including a Fantastic Subsidised Cafe

* In House Massage Therapist & Hair Stylist

* Additional day holiday each year

* Amigo offer incredible benefits, however, we want you to work for us because you want to work for the best. Not the benefits.
