Worked in a one of the product teams at Redgate. Involved development and testing of the products the team is responsible for. Participated in daily stand-ups, retro in an agile environment. Joined user research call with project managers and designers. Daily coding experience involves pair programming and mob programming.
I was a software engineer intern. Daily I would pair on tasks to write new features for SQL Monitor. I mainly wrote C# and Typescript. I would often do small tasks on my own, while larger tasks were done in pairs/mobs. Most days I would have a few zoom calls - some with my team and some with other teams in the company. I would give stand-ups and other meetings as regularly as any other team member.
I spent most of my internship with a dev team working on production software. Through working with them I learned a lot about software engineering and how to work as part of a team. Everyone in the company was very supportive and seemed keen to make me feel at home. I thoroughly enjoyed my internship and didn't feel like I missed out due to remote working.
I loved the atmosphere and the company values at Redgate, the benefits were great (free breakfast, lunch, coffee, team trips etc). The area of work is the only thing that lowers my rating of Redgate, the problem solving part is interesting but as an industrial designer it wasn't the most exciting area of design for me.
Redgate offered a very well organised internship. As an intern you get placed into a team around the company and work on the product they are responsible for. You don't really work with the other interns, but there is plenty of time to get together. Redgate is very focused on learning and sharing knowledge, so you should expect that there are lots of opportunities to get involved around Redgate with things such as presentations, and facilitating meetings.
I found the internship at Redgate very enjoyable, the work that I did was interesting and the company was an exciting place to work. Redgate do a lot to ensure their employees (or redgaters) are happy in the workplace, and so there are a number of perks (free breakfast & lunch, flexi-time, and much more), and there are a number of feel good fund events during the internship.
I really really enjoyed the placement at Redgate Software, I did a different placement last summer and this one was substantially more enjoyable in just about every aspect. The company culture made it so easy to settle in and the difficulty and scope of the work hit the right balance.
I enjoyed my internship a lot. The team and project I ended up on corresponded quite closely to my interests. It was clear that the company had put thought into matching the commercial interns to roles that suited what we'd expressed in our interviews. The environmental factors were also good: I got along well with the other interns, the atmosphere in the office was relaxed, and Cambridge is a nice town.
I really enjoyed my time at Redgate. There is a fantastic and friendly company culture, and the pay and benefits were also a big bonus. The company does free breakfast and lunch for everyone, which over 10 weeks has saved me a lot of money. The work I have been doing has also been varied and challenging at times which is exactly what I would have wanted.
My commercial internship at Redgate has been the best summer internship I have done! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here and have felt completely welcomed into the company and my team. The friendly company atmosphere and my managers made the internship thourgly enjoyable as I was able to gain all the skills and exposure I wanted from the internship as well as enjoying myself along the way.
I really liked my internship. It was filled with actual work that made a difference for the product and many fun activities in between. It's important for me to have a job that makes me feel like I'm contributing to something important and working at Redgate gave me just that.
