With our support you will become a world class software engineer, armed with the expertise to tackle the difficult challenges posed daily by the projects you are working on. With the assistance of your manager and mentor, you will learn new software languages and programming techniques to enable you to solve some of the most complex problems the software industry faces.

A career in the cloud

You will use your analytical skills to reduce each problem you encounter into its individual parts, and then work out how to solve each issue and turn your design into reality. Your creative instincts will help you to produce a solution that is elegant, efficient, high-quality and delivered to the customer on time.

Every project will involve new and exciting challenges. You’ll have clear ownership of the aspects that you are responsible for and will very soon be making key decisions that affect our products. As you become more experienced, you will increasingly have the opportunity to lead projects, people and teams as your career flourishes within Metaswitch.

You do not need prior computing experience, but an enquiring mind and the proven ability to solve complex problems are essential, as is an outstanding academic record.

"Be up for trying new things."

Andrew, Alice and George, Metaswitch graduates, share their hints and tips for those who are thinking about applying.

We don't just say it, we do it:

  • Your assigned mentor will set aside 20% of their time for your training in your first year. Supported by that commitment, you will have the freedom and flexibility to drive your career in the direction – and at the speed – that you choose.
  • You won’t follow a fixed rigid programme. You’ll have your own individual training plan, tailored to your specific needs and objectives.
  • On-the-job training will form the basis of your development. You will also enjoy specifically tailored in-house seminars covering the company's operation and developing your skills. Add to this an array of external courses, and you will gain all of the skills you need to succeed.

It is important to us that you do not feel pigeon-holed. So if you enjoy variety, you can spend time in any of the roles above. If you excel in all areas, then you will have the opportunity to run your own division - acting effectively as an entrepreneur within the company.

Don't forget our Hackathons...

In addition, we give everyone the opportunity to participate in regular Metaswitch organised Hackathons with your colleagues from across our engineering spectrum. These great events give everybody a chance to swap ideas and generate momentum in their own projects, as well as ensuring that your creative and problem-solving skills have a chance to shine – and win prizes!

COVID-19 update - We have swiftly moved both our 1st & 2nd interviews to virtual sessions. We are still recruiting as normal, we’ve had no changes made to how many interns and graduates we will recruit. We take every candidate into consideration individually and on their own merit, so we will 100% make allowances for the students that have all been caught up with COVID-19.
