Testimonials from recent interns:

"Serato is truly a one of a kind company to work for. I was fortunate enough to have been able to intern at Serato over two summers as a software engineer and the experience was invaluable.

The people and culture are fantastic and I felt so welcome and comfortable during my time there. I was given the opportunity to work on two different teams and two different products during my time at Serato and given the perfect balance of guidance, freedom and responsibility.

Over time I've noticed in my day to day university life that I still apply principles and skills that I gained throughout my internship and have a much better grasp of real world applications. It's pretty special to say that I can directly see what my work has helped to achieve when I open up Serato DJ or Serato Studio on my computer. I will always be grateful that Serato not only trusted me to, but gave me the tools to work on real-life projects, and as a bonus I came away with some new friends too! I cannot recommend an internship at Serato enough!"

"I have done two internships at Serato over the summer of 2019-2020 and 2020-2021, and they were delightful experiences. During my first internship, I got to put into a team to work on Serato DJ. I learnt Agile, Test Driven Development, and multiple new programming languages such as C++ and Python.

I decided to come back the next year and got a chance to work on implementing new features for Serato Studio. A highlight during my internship is that I got to work with other full-time developers on real projects. I received so much help from my team members and always felt I was treated as a real software developer. Overall, the internship was very enjoyable and it prepared me well for my future career."
