Summer intern - Technology

London, England, United Kingdom · Technology


Food waste is a $1 trillion problem – costing the world over 1% of global GDP. We’re dead set on solving the problem by developing cutting edge technology to transform the way we produce food.

Now in our fourth year of operation, we are currently operating in over 25 countries solving food waste issues for many blue chip global clients. We are rapidly growing, we are well funded, and we are just at the start of our journey.

Our current product is solid. But we are ambitious and have big plans to transform the Winnow system to one which makes headlines. Hiring the smartest and most talented software developers, will enable us to achieve these goals.

About the internship

Being an intern at Winnow isn’t about taking a back seat. Our interns are bright, motivated and integral members of the team. You’ll be getting involved at the heart of some of our key strategic projects and will have a voice which will be listened to.

As an Intern Developer, you’ll be using your innate coding talent and knowledge of computer programming languages. Our technology stack is constantly evolving as we pick the right tools for the job, but you should expect to be working with web, server and cloud technologies such as Angular JS, Node.js and MySQL (Postgres). We use an Agile process to manage our work flow, and you will work with the rest of the team to define and implement new tasks as they arise.

Depending on the projects we are focusing on at the time, you’ll gain a range of experiences while you are with us. You’ll get hands-on training and work with a mentor on a real strategic project. You could find yourself working with our Research Scientists, Scrum teams or product team. You may find yourself being challenged with developing in a language you’ve never used before or developing a new feature for the Winnow system.


Driven and ambitious you will be excited about gaining experience in a rapidly growing start-up (and one of Wired’s top 100 start-ups in Europe) at what is truly the most exciting and dynamic points in time in our business.

Your extraordinary attention to detail, and pride in what we’re creating, means your standards are always high. Things move quickly at Winnow so you’ll be able to work under pressure, get going of your own accord and use your initiative to get things done. You’ll be able to work at speed without compromising on accuracy and be able to work as part of a team. You’re also resilient, tenacious and open to feedback.

You’ll be in your penultimate year of study, expecting to graduate in 2020 and studying for a degree in Computer Science or any other relevant numerate and technical discipline. You’ll have exceptional programming skills and it’s looking pretty likely you’ll get at least a 2:1.

You will work alongside a driven team who are motivated by building an exciting business and leaving the world a better place than we found it.
