Making great software takes a special kind of team. We're always looking for innovators who truly understand how web applications should be written!

Ben Holland, Head of Development, Third Light

If you have a degree-level qualification in a technical subject and experience with internet software, please contact [email protected] with your CV. Our development team would love to hear from you.

Third Light is proud to be an equal opportunities employer.

Join an enlightened professional environment

With on-the-job experience, peers with cutting-edge skills, a genuine agile working culture, continual innovation, and experimental project opportunities, Third Light offers a career path that will help you realize your best potential.

We offer competitive remuneration and a range of rewards and benefits, including realistic working hours and a work-life-balance that is exceptional for our industry. Holidays start at 25 days per year, with additional rewards for long service. All advertised roles are open to remote workers and available part time.

We also have an adorable Beagle on our team, and a spectacular HQ building with great access to the local Cambridge area, subsidised café lunches and free parking.

Student internships

Third Light offers summer internships for students studying for a technical degree, such as Computer Science, Mathematics or Engineering. We have two vacancies each summer, which are typically allocated to students from Cambridge University. We make sure that every placement is a balance of commercial experience and development work. Third Light also often makes unconditional offers of employment for students who are interested in joining Third Light after they graduate.

Third Light offers an ideal placement that helps you to learn a lot about developing commercial software. The size of the company is just perfect for you to see the big picture, at the same time still able to zoom in and understand the essential components that make a commercial software product. (Bonus: There’s also a morale officer - a cute Beagle - and not many workplaces have that, I believe)
