Welcome to what could be your first step on an amazing journey! 

 

ABOUT US

You could say, we build software and data solutions. Because we do.

But we build them for people. People who need to solve problems, or do new things, or do existing things better. And change is hard, particularly at scale. Our customers need us to help them compete and survive - to innovate, support them as they take risks and care as much about value as they do. Success is not just about completing a set of requirements to time and budget. Success is about creating enduring, collaborative human relationships that explore value and risk and above all, contribute to meaningful organisational change. 

When we are building products with customers, we let them tell us what success looks like. It makes our job harder, but ultimately, we want to succeed on their terms. This is empathy.

There are a thousand of businesses that develop software. We need to tear up the extra miles, fuelled by the responsibility of bringing new concepts and ideas to life for our customers, creating momentum, continuously learning and improving, never satisfied with 'good enough'. This is energy.

When we exceed expectations and surprise and delight users, everyone wins. Creating 'wow' moments for customers should be a priority for us in any engagement. We need to think big if we are going to help customers create impact. This is audacity.

This is Ascent.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

What is it like to be part of Ascent?   Our internships are a fully immersive opportunity that allows you to live the experience as a junior software developer with one of our international teams.  It is an opportunity to practice what you have been learning in your University course in real life international projects as part of a multi cultural multi skilled software development team.   

We will help you to make mistakes as that is the most effective way to learn.  We do not hold your hand and will allow you to try to implement your best approaches to solving some real life problems.  When done our teams will help you understand why your solution looks good but its not optimised for the industry.   You will frustratingly rework on it to improve it thinking why wasn't I told this before.  Once done your system will be industry optimised but not scalable to real life use.  The team will tell you how an optimised solution can become scalable and you will again do your best with the knowledge that if we told you how to do it right immediately you would have just learn the 'HOW' but not the 'WHY'.   The 'WHY', is the most necessary tool to resolve some of the innovative challenging problems that we solve for our clients daily.  You will also learn that whilst at school you get an A when your score is over 85% in industry 85% equates to failure because our clients deserve nothing less than a 100% every time.  

This is a role that could lead to a full time role once you finish your studies.

 

ABOUT YOU

You are a top student in your course and you are starving for a real life challenge.  You have a passion to solve problems and want to make an impact whilst learning how to make a client's problem, your own!    In everything you do you give your 100% and you consider your self as a high performing individual with a can do attitude.  You love to work in teams in a supportive and collaborative manner and have an open mind to learn and share your knowledge with others.   

If this is you and you like who we are and what we are offering, then simply apply for this role.

 

Limitations

Our internships in the Sofia Offices are offered during the summer recess to Undergrads and Fresh Graduates residing in or around Sofia.  We are closely following the pandemic updates and depending on National Health Regulations we may need to limit our internships intake this year

Why join Ascent?

We’re fast becoming a leading European digital transformation business.

Joining Ascent means you’ll be involved in delivering exciting technology projects for leading global brands. You’ll be part of a growing team of super-talented people who are actively choosing to join us on our journey rather than working in big corporates.

Your voice matters at Ascent. We are always keen to hear your opinions and those ideas that come to you at 3am (some of them are definitely as good as they seemed at the time). You’ll develop your talent through our internal Academy, providing a wide range of personal development, up-skilling and cross-skilling opportunities.
