What makes our graduate roles unique?

As a graduate, you’ve got a lot of options. Our roles will appeal to those with an independent mind and entrepreneurial spirit. Here’s what makes our graduate opportunities unique:

Avoid the corporate scrum

There are a lot of graduate opportunities around – preparing thousands of students for a life of office politics, glass ceilings and corporate ladders.

We’re a different option. You won’t have to wear a suit, or worry about bureaucracy. We work in small, fast and supportive teams and reward ideas, innovation and success.

Come out of the shadows

Some organizations consign graduates to the shadows: following a mentor for 6 months then building pretend products for pretend customers. Not ours.

As a Cambridge Intelligence graduate you’ll be part of the team, writing code to be shipped and working to achieve solutions for our customers. We want to hear your ideas, and will help you turn them into reality.

Create something new

From fighting terrorism to detecting cyber attacks, we’re using new techniques and technologies to solve some very big problems.

As part of our development team, you’ll help to make a difference. You’ll work on challenges that have never been tackled before, building exciting new tools that get deployed around the world.

Understand the development process

We’re not a global conglomerate, but we are a busy and growing team. You’ll get to experience many aspects of the process of designing, building and deploying software.

You’ll follow agile processes for planning, executing and evaluating project work, getting the experience and support you need at every stage.

The application process

Apply online

First, check you meet our requirements then apply online. You can find application links on the job description page.

A quick call

If we think you could be a good fit, one of our people will arrange a time to give you a ring. This is just an informal chat, to learn more about you and your motivations.

Code review

The next step is a chance to show off your technical skills. We’ll ask you to submit some sample code that showcases your abilities and experience.

Panel interview

A chance to meet your future team mates and discuss your coding task. The panel will consist of the development manager and a developer.


The panel puts you forward for a final stage meeting with the CTO and Head of Development. If you’re successful, we’ll offer you the role.

Training, support and mentorship

For the duration of your graduate role (and beyond) we’ll make sure you’ve got the support and guidance you need.

When you start, you’ll be assigned a buddy – someone you can call on to ask questions, raise problems and discuss ideas. You’ll meet at least once a month, but can schedule more time whenever needed. You’ll also have regular catch-ups with your line manager.

Your schedule will be arranged to dedicate time to learning something new, incorporating self-study, formal learning, hands-on coding and attending external courses and conferences.
