Apply Now

Thought Machine, one of the UK's leading fintech companies, is undergoing a period of rapid expansion and is looking to hire Software Engineers this summer for our 2019 Internship programme

Our mission is to cure one of the banking industry's primary problems: its reliance on outdated IT infrastructure. Nearly every bank is stuck on a legacy IT platform, which cripples their ability to innovate and give their customers the type of service they deserve.

Our solution to this is Vault: a complete retail banking platform that is capable of being configured easily to suit the needs of any bank. We have built Vault from the ground up as a cloud native, microservice API architecture platform. Thought Machine has a deep culture of engineering excellence, and we believe it is this which delivers a solution compelling enough to engender a seismic shift in the banking industry.

Thought Machine is looking for highly talented individuals to help grow the company and achieve our ambitious goal. We pride ourselves on having an excellent internal culture, where we strive hard to create the best possible working environment; a healthy mix of great technical work, fast pace, supportive atmosphere, and of course our irreverent sense of fun.

Thought Machine hires team members of excellent calibre in every role. While a lot will be asked of you, you will benefit greatly from working in a world class team, with colleagues who excel. Working at Thought Machine is fast paced and team oriented with an emphasis in delivering the highest quality work in every role.

We are currently searching for the perfect candidate to join us for a paid, 10-week internship this summer. In this role, you will work in a team with our backend engineers, using cutting-edge technology to deliver both client-facing and internal projects.

You will develop ownership and responsibility for your own work and learn how to build software in an agile manner during weekly sprints. Our new program will support your growth and development whilst working alongside some of the brightest minds in FinTech.

** Our internship will run from 1st July - 2nd September 2018. Applications close end of March, when we will come back to all applications regarding next steps**


Our new team member should be excited to work with new technologies, push their engineering skills to the limit, and be ready to work across engineering, design and business development to build the next generation of financial applications.

We are looking for someone who...

  • Has obtained or is working towards an undergraduate or masters degree Computer Science, Engineering or a related discipline
  • Has some experience and a passion for one of Python, Java, or Go.
  • Have contributed to an open-source project or taken part in a University project of considerable scale


This is a 10 week paid internship.

We are hiring for permanent positions so there are further opportunities upon completion of the internship, should you be interested.
