We know what a good internship looks like-lots of our developers started out as interns. We strongly believe that internships should be about doing real work and making a real difference from day one, not watching other people do things.

At Gearset, you'll be a fully fledged member of the development team and work on real features, right the way through from their design, to developing them, to releasing them to our users. The features you build will make thousands of businesses around the world more effective.

When you join Gearset you'll have a dedicated mentor to help you through your internship, make sure you're getting as much out of it as possible, and (perhaps most importantly) make sure you're having a great time. You'll have the opportunity to learn from a passionate, experienced development team, as well as working with design, marketing and usability experts-and we'll have the opportunity to learn from you too!

Please note the following:
- You must be based in the UK for this role.
- You must be a current student studying for a Bachelor's or Masters degree.
- This is not a role that we can provide visa sponsorship for.

You'll be a good fit if you:
Want to gain experience working as part of a world-class development team at a successful startup
Want to learn how to extend and maintain a heavily used web app with 99.99% up-time while doing tri-daily releases, and help contribute to the continual improvement of our devops process
Are at least a year into a university degree in a relevant discipline (or will be by July 2022)
Can write code and solve complex problems
Like to write well-structured, testable code, with a focus on simplicity and maintainability
Care about quality-not only of the code you write, but of the product you're building
Are interested, even if not experienced, in both frontend and backend development-we build a hosted web app and you'll be building full features, from the database layer all the way up to the client-side UI
Enjoy working with a collaborative team of varied disciplines, including developers, designers, marketers and salespeople
Have an enthusiasm for working directly with users to build and deliver the right features
Are open minded, motivated, and have an innate desire to learn and improve

Working at Gearset, you will:
Collaborate with the rest of the development team (as well as designers, marketers and salespeople) to spec, design and build new features end-to-end
Maintain and extend existing features
Learn from, and share your experience with, a great team - alumni of Microsoft, EA and Cambridge University to name a few
Become familiar with a pragmatically-chosen tech stack, including a mix of cutting-edge and proven technologies such as Docker, AWS, C#, and TeamCity
Work closely with users, delighting them with support, researching new features and soliciting feedback
Contribute opinions on a range of topics, from development practices to product strategy and roadmap

Nice to haves:
Familiarity with C# and JavaScript, or similar languages
A link to a great example(s) of code you've written (e.g. GitHub)
Experience with relational databases such as PostgreSQL

Practicalities & Benefits:
You'll work 40 hours per week, Monday to Friday and be based in our Cambridge office.
The internship will start in July 2022 and you'll stay with us for 10 weeks.
You'll be paid GBP425 per week
Gearset has a relaxed, professional atmosphere with no dress code
Flexible working hours
Free lunch in the office

Please note:
All applications will be reviewed from October 2021 and interviews will start from October 2021 and last until all of the positions have been filled
