About Us

IDBS is a leading global provider of advanced software for research and development (R&D) organizations to securely capture, manage, share and exploit structured and unstructured data. 

Our customers around the globe trust us with their data, their business and their success and we enable them to get back to what they do best: science.


Are you looking for an industrial placement starting July 2019 that uses your scientific knowledge but isn't based in a lab?

Are you looking for an opportunity to develop IT skills, alongside a small intake of high calibre students and to be a valued member of the team?

The IDBS Product Delivery department consists of agile, self-organising, feature teams having ownership of development, test and support of discrete areas of functionality within our product suite. Working closely with Product Managers and Business Analysts we rapidly deliver additional value to the business.

Student Placement Opportunities (starting July 2019)

IDBS offers student placement positions for developers and testers within the Product Delivery department. These are typically one year placements starting each summer. The objective of the placement is to gain industrial experience in the use of agile development practices, additionally gaining competency as a developer or tester.

Support, guidance and on-the-job training will be given as needed, so previous experience in Software Testing is not essential.

As a member of the testing team you will work with other testers and developers sharing responsibility for creating high quality data management and analytic software for use across the pharmaceutical, life-science and healthcare industries. You will analyse problems, create tests using modern automated test tools and technologies and seek to find and help solve problems in the software we produce.

Job Requirements


Skills/Competencies we are looking for:
  • Honours degree in life science, mathematical or computer science subject (or currently working towards this).
  • Excellent communication skills, the ability to relay complex information concisely and articulately.
  • Ability to work as part of a team, supporting others towards a common goal.
  • Detail orientated.
  • Ability and willingness to learn and use new technologies.
