Description

It all started in early 2016, when the WonderBill founders came together with a common goal: ‘Make managing bills and getting better deals simple for everybody’. Our aim is to become the trusted place for bill management, providing the knowledge of what we spend and why. Users can see all of their bills in one place, an overview of their outgoing payments and compare and switch to new providers easily.

You'll bring an entrepreneurial mindset and a desire to solve complex technical challenges with clean, simple code. As an intern at WonderBill you will work on real development projects from day one. Working closely with the Engineering and Product teams you’ll be responsible for building new features, delivering bug fixes and continually working to improve our product for our users.

What we do

Delivering simple solutions to complex problems

We’re constantly taking on new challenges in machine learning, security and automation to deliver the best platform for our users, which means that we have to be creative when it comes to solving problems and flexible in finding new and better ways of working.

Fast and flexible

We believe building great software requires a multidisciplinary approach so engineers develop skills across our full tech stack. We apply Agile methodology to deliver effective solutions and respond quickly to the evolving requirements of the business and our users.

Working together

We believe in continuously improving what we do - pair programming, daily scrums, BDD/TDD, code optimisation and reviews mean we’re always learning. Engineering, product and operations work together and we all take responsibility for the delivery of a first class experience for our users

Our tech stack

You don't need to have experience with our tech stack, but you do need to be willing to learn something new every day. Our stack includes Javascript, Ruby, Go, React, React Native, Redux, Cucumber, Docker, Appium, Postgres, Terraform, AWS, Kubernetes, Chrome extensions, Git, Hashicorp Vault, Postgres and Redis.

  • Strong A-levels (or equivalent) ideally including an A grade in Maths
  • A foundation in OOP and programming ability in one or more OO languages
  • Strong understanding of engineering principles and best practices
  • A passion for technology and an eagerness to find smart solutions to complex problems 

What we can offer 

Over your one year industrial placement you’ll be based in our Canary Wharf office. You'll join our team on a one year fixed term contract, ideally starting in June/July 2019.  

  • Competitive internship salary and contribution to transport costs
