Software Engineering Internships (Intern) UK

Location - Harpenden, Herts 

Start Date - Summer 2024 8-10 Weeks Placement 

What You'll Do:

Our aim is to provide you with a full experience of what it is like to work as part of the Ensoft engineering team. All of our software development teams are responsible for delivering pioneering software technology that helps to run the Internet, delivered to an outstanding quality. We want to help you build experience of this that will be valuable to your future, as well as helping you to decide if this is the career for you. To achieve this, you will be working closely alongside one of our teams on a project with a real result, and with a completion point that can be reached within the 8-10 week period that you are with us. This should allow you to experience everything from design through to coding and testing of the product, along with the day to day agile processes that we use to lead our work.

You’ll be working in our office in Harpenden, close to the station and with a very fast connection into London. Harpenden is an attractive town, which, thanks to its excellent commute, has a thriving centre with shops, bars and restaurants. Close by is the city of St Albans, bringing a wider social scene (theatres, clubs, a wider selection of bars) and all the facilities offered by a modern city. By road, both the M1 and M25 are easily accessible by car. 

Who You'll Work With:

You’ll be working alongside incredibly passionate individuals, like yourself, with a shared enthusiasm for software development. Cisco’s Ensoft team is entirely made up of people recruited as energetic, exceptional  individuals who have developed into all the roles that make up our team today - from the management team to the industry leading technical experts.

We have a really friendly culture. It is a sign of how well people get on that employees arrange so many activities together in their spare time. This is on top of the many company funded social events arranged by our social team

Who You Are and What You Need To Be Eligible:

  • You must have a curiosity about developing software - That's what we do!
  • You should be an undergraduate student taking a numerate degree at a UK university. 
  • We need you to have enough software and programming experience to become quickly productive, so we can offer an exciting placement

Finally, you must be sociable. Our software development process is collaborative, so you should enjoy working closely with the other people in your team 

Message to applicants applying to work in the U.S.:

When available, the salary range posted for this position reflects the projected hiring range for new hire, full-time salaries in U.S. locations, not including equity or benefits. For non-sales roles the hiring ranges reflect base salary only; employees are also eligible to receive annual bonuses. Hiring ranges for sales positions include base and incentive compensation target. Individual pay is determined by the candidate's hiring location and additional factors, including but not limited to skillset, experience, and relevant education, certifications, or training. Applicants may not be eligible for the full salary range based on their U.S. hiring location. The recruiter can share more details about compensation for the role in your location during the hiring process.

U.S. employees have access to quality medical, dental and vision insurance, a 401(k) plan with a Cisco matching contribution, short and long-term disability coverage, basic life insurance and numerous wellbeing offerings. Employees receive up to twelve paid holidays per calendar year, which includes one floating holiday, plus a day off for their birthday. Employees accrue up to 20 days of Paid Time Off (PTO) each year and have access to paid time away to deal with critical or emergency issues without tapping into their PTO. We offer additional paid time to volunteer and give back to the community. Employees are also able to purchase company stock through our Employee Stock Purchase Program.

Employees on sales plans earn performance-based incentive pay on top of their base salary, which is split between quota and non-quota components. For quota-based incentive pay, Cisco pays at the standard rate of 1% of incentive target for each 1% revenue attainment against the quota up to 100%. Once performance exceeds 100% quota attainment, incentive rates may increase up to five times the standard rate with no cap on incentive compensation. For non-quota-based sales performance elements such as strategic sales objectives, Cisco may pay up to 125% of target. Cisco sales plans do not have a minimum threshold of performance for sales incentive compensation to be paid.
