About Zing

Zing is the only 100% dedicated Twilio implementation partner in the UK. Recently awarded a Silver Twilio consulting partnership status, our aim is to unlock the power of Twilio and to help put customer engagement at the heart of organisations all over the world.

Not heard of Twilio? You will soon. Twilio are fundamentally disrupting the communications industry, providing APIs for managing any type of communication; Voice, Video, SMS and since acquiring SendGrid, now also email. Any time you speak to an Uber driver, talk to an M&S Call Centre or receive a message from Netflix, that's all powered by Twilio. And we are the ones building and implementing all these technologies! Our strong partnership with Twilio is essential to the success of the solutions we build, as is our developers’ expertise.

Zing started as a consultancy division of leading CRM provider, ProspectSoft and has since spun out as a separate organisation. Following the amazing success of the ProspectSoft placement scheme, we have decided to continue offering undergraduate opportunities as they have become an integral part in the way we run our business – with the placements carrying as much responsibility as full time employees, this is the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to gain real experience in a fast-paced, rapidly growing industry.

As an SME, we have a small and dynamic team which tackles almost any project that comes our way. Our placements benefit from endless opportunities to get involved in a variety of different projects, learning invaluable skills which will assist them in their future career. As many of the team were placement students themselves, they understand what it’s like and therefore have devised an extensive 6 week training programme to ensure new placements are fully equipped before starting in their new roles. Support and guidance is continuously provided to placements throughout the whole year with our ‘buddy’ system – although being a tight knit team, everyone is always on hand to help and support our placements in their personal development.

If you’re looking to kick start your career in Software Development, a placement year a Zing could be the one for you.

"I worked alone and alongside a team of other developers to build mainly Twilio based projects for many different customers. This involved using a wide range of Twilio products as well as many different programming languages like Typescript and C# on a regular basis. Additionally I had to contribute to some of the support side of projects after they had been handed over." Read full review
