Graduate Software & Data Engineering Programme

Computer Science/Software/Technology.

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

We seek outstanding graduates that want exceptional careers in technology. We then provide world-class training in software and data engineering, followed by 2 years of employment working alongside one of our clients. Our mission is your long-term success.

What makes us different?

Where we are different is that our mission is more than just getting you a job; we are interested in your long term success.

We are a high-performance education B Corp* that reinvests its profits in world-class training to produce the next generation of leaders in technology.

*a B Corp is an organisation that commits to wider social benefits, not just financial return.

The simple facts:

  • The Training: a free 12-16 week intensive programme covering software and data engineering: from JavaScript, SQL and Python to industry best practices (OOP, TDD and Agile). Equally important, we include training in high-performance personal and professional behaviour (from interviewing to problem-solving);
  • The Role: after training, our laser focus is to place you with a client and employ you starting on a £30,000 p.a. You will work with our clients for 2 years to help them solve real-world problems while we continue to develop you technically and professionally. If we fail to find you a role with us, we will still try and help you find a role somewhere;
  • The Goal: at the end of 2 years working for us, you will join our network that includes 100 senior managers at some of the world's leading organisations, who are all committed to helping Sigma Labs alumni in the long term. You should be able to earn £40k+ at this point;
  • The Location: the training is largely remote, but we will bring you to our central London office for a few days at the start to get to know each other better. All of our clients are London based and therefore our consultants will have to move to London once placed with a client;
  • Eligibility: we focus on those who grew up in the UK. Applications from those who grew up outside the UK will be considered on a case-by-case basis. You must have:
    • Economic: at least one of the following applies to you: grew up in a household with a total annual income of less than £43k; attended a non-academically selective state school; were eligible for free school meals; received local authority care; or received university benefits. We do not accept applications from anyone who attended a private school in the UK or abroad.
    • Education: received, or expected to receive, at least a 2ii from a UK university in any multi-year degree. If you did not receive a 2ii or more but still graduated, we will consider you if you received at least an A or B in a STEM A-level;
    • Right to work in the UK: you must be able to work in the UK for at least 3 years after starting. Typically this means that one of the following applies: have a UK passport, EU/EEA Settled Status or Indefinite Leave to Remain (currently we do not sponsor visas).

Who we’re looking for

You’ll fit right in if you:

  • always want to learn; 
  • communicate clearly and can collaborate with a range of people; 
  • are willing to keep working through the tough times; 
  • imagine yourself creatively solving problems with technology. 

Our training requires a minimum level of coding when you start, but you do not need any experience before applying - you only need to be OK with numbers. 

Our Offer

  • 3-4 months of proven high-quality training followed by work with a London-based high performing client using technology to make a positive impact;
  • Learn a wide range of skills that are in high demand;
  • Consistent reinvestment in your training and ongoing support through low trainee/coach ratios, regular 121s and high-performance mindset coaching;
  • Professional skills training to allow you to make a mark throughout your career and not just on Day 1;
  • Remote-first learning and hybrid working;
  • Start learning through the hiring process;
  • No need to ask us for feedback - we always share feedback at every stage of the hiring process;
  • Laptops and home working equipment provided throughout training;
  • Access to a range of free accredited courses.

Open for both October and January/February start dates. 

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
