We are looking for interns ready to start in Summer 2023 for six weeks, with a degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related subject. You will have a strong academic background, and with a passion for software engineering and a desire to learn and grow.

To help, here’s a summary of who we are looking for:

Company and Projects

Cambridge Kinetics was founded in response to a clear demand for high quality software development services around Cambridgeshire. We provide our clients with bespoke, custom software solutions - focusing on user experience, design and performance. In particular, we forge long-standing partnerships with our clients - and provide them with tangible business results.

There is certainly no typical project and those involved in the company can look forward to involvement in a wide range of projects - covering everything from agriculture to construction. As a valued part of the design and development team, you will be encouraged to be involved in all aspects from solution concept and design, through to delivery and support.

Location

We provide our team the flexibility of a hybrid combination of remote and in-person work, to get the best of both worlds.

We have offices in St John's Innovation Centre and you will be required to be in the office at least twice a week, and be willing to occasionally travel to client sites.

Remuneration

This is a paid internship for six weeks. We are flexible on start and end dates, and there is the potential to extend the internship based on performance.
