Software Engineer Internship

Company: Diabetes.co.uk    Location: University of Warwick

Diabetes.co.uk is the worlds most active and engaged diabetes community, owned and operated by Diabetes Digital Media. We´ve got over 650,000 members - that´s more than 10% of people living with diabetes in the UK.

We provide intelligent, digital health interventions that are changing the lives of millions of people. We´re starting by reversing as many of the 375m cases of type 2 diabetes as we can with our Low Carb Program.

Our evidence-based digital health interventions, like the Low Carb Program, have been featured in the New Scientist, The Times, Daily Mail, Sky News and BBC with thousands of people placing their type 2 diabetes into remission (reversal). Why is this significant? Because type 2 diabetes was once thought of as a disease that is chronic and progressive - but it is not, and by demonstrating that, we are changing the future of medicine. We´ve already saved the NHS £6.9m in medication savings in just a year.

As a result, we are hiring a roll-up-your-sleeves passionate, meticulous Software Developer.
