Software Development Internship 2015

If you are an IT graduate or currently an IT intern with a passion for developing great software, our internship bootcamp could be for you. We take on 12 interns at the start of each year, pay a stipend and supply awesome free lunches, and put you through the most intensive, fun, team training imaginable! Our internship is designed to take people with a flair for software development, and bridge what they learned at college or university with what the commercial world needs.

We have around a dozen companies, including some very well-known corporates and prominent Agile teams, waiting to take on interns who survive our bootcamp! Do you make the grade?

Our projects are run according to Agile principles, so you will learn about Scrum, Extreme Programming, Test-driven development (TDD), databases, domain driven design (DDD), Single-page Web Apps (SPA’s), JavaScript and much more. The Program is full-time and interns are expected to work a full day, five days a week.

The course starts mid-January and runs until the end of February annually.

The programme is facilitated by a team of senior developers, trainers and architects who will provide you with weekly feedback on your progress.

All interns will obtain a certificate of attendance at the end of the internship.

Upon completion of the programme, successful Interns will be assisted to find employment within KRS or one of the many companies who provide interview opportunities to our graduates. This is a seven-week, paid, fast track to becoming a junior developer – the rest will be up to you!
