Intern – Software Engineering (12 Months)

As a software intern you will be helping us in producing software systems to enable production of our robotics platform and creating new tooling to help our business grow efficiently. You will work with one of the most advanced robotics software platforms in the world, actively developing new cloud systems that will enable us to collect and analyse large volumes of data.

Why join us?

CMR is one of the UK’s most exciting companies to be joining right now. The scale of our ambition to build a world-class medical devices company in Cambridge is matched only by the breath-taking innovation that underpins our next generation of surgical robot. We’re an award-winning company that plans to significantly disrupt the way surgery is performed for the benefit of millions of patients all around the world.

Our values are ambitious, humble, people focused and fair and responsible. If you share these values, our passion for improving lives, and have the skills to make a real difference to the way minimal access surgery is developed and delivered, then it’s a great time to join us.

The Role

Your team will provide opportunities for ownership, giving and receiving mentoring, delivery and responsibility in a challenging, world-leading application area. We are looking for great students interested in software engineering who are keen to develop their programming skills predominantly (but not only) in Python and modern JavaScript.

It is hard for us to say exactly what you will be involved in during your internship as the opportunities vary depending on the area of the business that you join, but we can guarantee you will be doing real work in a real company! We have no side projects; your work will add value from day one. You will be included in day to day tasks and take on responsibility in great teams alongside great people!

You will be:
• in your final year of A Levels (or equivalent) looking for a gap year internship of at least 9 months
• applying for your 1-year Industrial Placement as part of your university course

An internship in our team is suited to students interested in a career in the following roles / areas: software engineering, APIs, networked software development, data engineering, Amazon Web Services.


What will you will get involved in whilst you are with us? Here are a few examples:

  • Develop maintainable and robust software
  • Support the team by engaging with users to create great products
  • Get involved in writing clear and concise technical documentation

We’re a high growth company and as such roles change and evolve. We’d expect you to be willing to turn your hand to anything within the software remit that helps the team deliver its objectives.

The list might look long and fairly vague but we will give you more information at the interview stage and, if successful in securing an internship with us, one of the team will be in touch closer to your start date with a more specific overview!

About You

A natural communicator hopefully goes without saying, but in addition we’d like you to have:

  • A strong academic background
  • Intermediate Python skills Required
  • Modern JavaScript skills are desirable
  • A “can-do” attitude is essential: good at “getting things done”
  • Good written and verbal communication skills

Ideally you will be going into university to study or be currently undertaking a degree in Computer Science, engineering, physics, mathematics or related discipline. You will have an interest in software development and familiarity with internet technologies. Especially desirable but by no means essential would be knowledge of:

  • Browsers
  • Servers
  • Databases
  • Infrastructure (Amazon Web Services).

The Package

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package alongside awesome activities like our legendary monthly BBQs, indoor climbing wall and movie nights! On top of that, you’ll be joining a company with a fabulous culture of ambition, creativity and teamwork, and where fun is just as valued as our commitment to make surgery better for millions of people.

Interested? We’d love to hear from you!
