The Application Process

Stage 1: Submit your application online
Choose to apply for a role in Data Science or Software Engineering. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so we recommend applying early to avoid disappointment. 

Stage 2: Skills Assessment
Once your application has been reviewed, applicants will be invited to complete a short test designed to assess their current knowedge and problem solving skills. You will be sent the test via email and asked to return it through the included link to the Recruitment team. 

Stage 3: Interviews
The next stage of the applications will be interviews, which are planned to take place in the evening on Thursday 27th February at our head office in Cambridge. You will have a short interview with one of the team as well as the chance to meet and chat with a few other team members over pizza and drinks. If you are unable to make the event the team can organise a Skype interview instead.

This is not only a chance for us to meet you, but also a chance for you to learn more about how our company works, the culture in the office, and to ask any questions you might have about the internship. You'll also meet other applicants who may end up on the programme with you.  

Stage 4: Offer
If you are successful in the first three stages, the next step will be for our recruitment team to make you an offer. If you accept, you will need to be ready to start fighting fraud during Summer 2020!
