IT and Business Software Graduate Scheme

IT and Business Software Graduate Scheme

We’re looking for dedicated, responsive and ambitious individuals who are keen to develop their career in information technology, software development and cloud services. Our graduate scheme provides you with the opportunity to support and maintain CMR’s enterprise strategy, software applications, physical infrastructure and cloud services in a rapidly growing and internationalising company.

Why join us?

CMR Surgical is developing a next-generation robotic system for universal minimal access surgery. The Versius system comprises a surgeon console, modular light-weight robotic arms and a range of wristed 5 mm instruments. The system uses state-of-the-art 3D high-definition imagery and significantly enhanced flexibility. In short, we’re creating something truly amazing designed to improve the lives of people around the globe; it’s a vision that excites us and hopefully will excite you.

Versius overcomes obstacles to widespread adoption of robotic minimal access surgery, namely robot size, instrument size, versatility, port placement, cost and ease of use, allowing the system to be highly utilised and ultimately cost-comparable to manual laparoscopic surgery.

The Company was formed in 2014 and has its headquarters in Cambridge, United Kingdom. We’re privately owned and enjoy strong financial backing.


CMR Surgical is committed to applying modern best software engineering practice to the growth and scale-up of CMR Surgical’s engineering, manufacturing and cloud services.  Our graduate scheme will provide you with opportunities to develop your career in the following areas:

  • Design & maintenance of on premises IT services (database-backed services, file servers, engineering tool chains & associated backup / disaster recovery functions) to optimise performance, reliability & resilience
  • Cloud service provision, maintenance and reporting for real-time manufacturing and Versius surgical robotic system in-field feedback
  • Design, migration and management, using System Reliability Engineering (SRE) concepts, of on-premises IT services into the cloud
  • DevOps development to support a complex set of continuous integration needs (including integration testing on real robotic hardware – developers commit and a robot moves!)
  • Design & development of business intelligence analytics tools and platforms to ensure the business functions efficiently

We offer a competitive salary and a great benefits package (including pension, cycle-to-work scheme, life assurance, and medical insurance – as well as our now famous monthly company BBQs). 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.
