Job Description

We’re looking for talented, motivated undergrads who want to work on real problems with a world-class team.

We have paid internships available in our front-end, back-end and web operations teams. If you're passionate about tech, care about learning and finding elegant solutions, and want to work with like-minded engineers, we want to hear from you.

Our team

GoCardless is an ambitious, fast-growing tech startup disrupting the payments industry. We build simple, reliable systems on top of technologies we understand and trust. We're primarily built in Ruby and JavaScript using Rails and Angular, and we rely on Postgres, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ and Chef.

We're nimble, deploying every day, and we're doing our most ambitious work right now – working with government and multi-national companies to build GoCardless Pro, and integrating with more banking systems to expand our offering across Europe.

At the same time we’re already processing millions of pounds of payments every day, so there's no space for inconsistent data or downtime. We maintain reliability while iterating on our product by having a test-suite we can rely on, and prioritising code review.

As a dev team, learning and mentoring are core to our values: we send our team to conferences and run internal talks on subjects both technical and general. We’re involved in the wider tech community too, regularly hosting meetups and hackdays, and speaking at external events to share our knowledge, skills and passion.


Your internship

You’ll be treated as a fully fledged member of the team from day one, working on interesting, challenging projects that are integral to our product and to the company’s success. You’ll work closely with experienced engineers and we’ll encourage you to learn new technologies and expand your awareness of the full stack.

You’ll also get an insight into how a fast-growing tech company works and how the different areas of our business interact.

You should apply if:

  • you’re passionate about technology
  • you’re constantly looking for ways to improve
  • you’ve experimented with building applications for the web
  • you believe that code must be well-tested, and that tests are a helpful tool in driving design

We’ll consider applicants for placements lasting for 8 weeks or longer and we’ll pay a competitive salary.
