There are currently no vacancies, but don't let that put you off! We always want to hear from talented people who feel they have something to add to our team.

Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Roles we typically
Software developers design, build, deploy and maintain the software and systems behind websites and apps. They are responsible for writing clear, secure code which can be followed and shared with other team members.
Delivery managers are responsible for liaising between clients, team members and end-users to ensure that projects are delivered on budget, on time, and within scope. They play an active role in data analysis, workflow planning and time management.
Interaction designers work closely with front end developers to devise and implement the best strategies for allowing users to interact with websites and apps. They are often involved in user research to understand how users interact with services.
Content designers use content to complement design. It is their responsibility to write and design content, and present it to users in the best format to help them understand the services they are using as easily and accurately as possible.
User experience (UX) researchers investigate user behaviour, needs and motivations to make informed decisions about how digital products and services should be designed to create the most intuitive and enjoyable experience for users.
Here at Cursor we understand the importance of planning for the future, and that includes investing in the next generation of designers and developers. We welcome students to join us for work experience or internships to get real-world industry experience.
Hadi joined Cursor on a one year internship as part of his degree course. After studying for a further year to secure his Master's degree, Hadi was offered a permanent position on the Cursor team, focusing mainly on software development.
What I learned from the experience
I quickly realised that soft skills, such as communication, are just as important as hard skills, such as programming. For example, when I'm talking with a client, my communication skills in terms of how I articulate the work I've done has proven to be just as valuable as the actual work.
I learned, and am still learning, to plan ahead and meet deadlines. Finally, a vital skill I've acquired is the ability to work within a team towards a defined objective.
Tips I would give other students on placement
- Value soft skills above hard ones!
- Accept all forms of work. Even if it seems menial, if you change your perspective, it could be an opportunity to learn something new.
- Physical fitness is important. Go to the gym or play some sports in your free time.
- Make friends outside work and make sure to hang out with them on weekends. This way, you’ll come to Monday morning feeling fresh and ready for work.
The day after her 20th birthday, Riz accepted a one year internship at Cursor which, in Riz’s words, was "truly transformative"...
"After the first week ended, I was already shattered. I stressed over how much I didn’t know, how much I felt like I really was an imposter sitting next to a brilliant team who would always know more than I ever could. I might have even counted the exact number of weeks that awaited until the end...Then, days began to change themselves...
"Without a doubt, each member of the team was paramount to this growth I had never expected or envisioned. And while there were challenges, deadlines, and mistakes, there was also laughter, mentoring, and pancakes! For the opportunity of spending my time in the company of such a team, was a highlight of my year..."

Andrew joined Cursor in 2017 for a one year internship as part of his University degree. It’s fair to say he experienced a steep learning curve, both in terms of technical skills and team work, but also in terms of working life and managing long days in the office!
My advice to students
- Push out of your comfort zone in order to grow
- Get an all-round experience to make the most of your internship
- Nothing worth having comes easy
- Take care of yourself, physically and mentally
