Summer Internship 2017 – Software Developer

The Vacancy

TPP is offering paid internships for summer 2017 (£2,000 per month) for university students who will be going into their final year. Working alongside our Software Developers you’ll get the opportunity to work on exciting new projects, developing cutting-edge healthcare software. Our interns typically join us for 12 weeks but we are flexible on duration and start dates.

Our Software Developers work on a wide variety of projects as part of an agile development environment. They are involved in the full software cycle and work closely with all teams across the company as they scope out new projects and design, develop and deploy our innovative clinical system.

In the last three years, several high calibre students have joined TPP’s prestigious summer internship programme. During their three months with the company they worked on interesting projects in a variety of areas. These included:

  • iOS development of apps for patients and clinicians
  • Development of pseudonymisation and research technologies to aid in public health and clinical trials
  • Improving the sharing of clinical tools for healthcare professionals
  • Integrating TPP’s systems with third-party products
  • Introducing new features to our core system

All of our interns have loved their time here, and many of them have come back after graduating to work as TPP Software Developers. Hear below from some of our previous interns:

“Getting responsibility for a section of the system from the start was really exciting. The ethos of the teams is amazing – friendly and willing to help and teach. I have learned a great deal about software development that I just didn’t get at university because the scale of everything is just something else!” – Will, University of Cambridge

“I spent 12 weeks at TPP over the summer and loved every second of it. I was able to work on a wide variety of projects, from the desktop client to iOS apps, and in doing so learnt two new programming languages. It was an exciting place to work, and knowing that the developments I made are already being used by thousands of people is incredibly rewarding.” – James, University of Oxford

“During my internship I was able to build on my existing skills and to learn new ones. I had the opportunity to work on multiple aspects of SystmOne software as well as working on internal tools that will be built upon and used by the company after my internship. I thoroughly enjoyed the 12 weeks I spent at TPP and would recommend the experience to anyone looking to try a career in software development.” – Ross, University of Warwick

“My time as a Software Developer Intern at TPP was exciting and extremely varied. The chance to work within several different teams, facing new and real challenges on a daily basis all whilst being taught by some of the best programmers around really made the summer fly by.” – Lewis, University of Warwick.
