Starting here is just the beginning.
For over 35 years, we have been pioneering EDI solutions for complex, global supply chains. Now we want to pass this knowledge to a new generation of developers. We are always looking for new thinking, whether you have recently graduated from university or you are ready to start a new career.
Welcome to the Engineering Graduate Programme.
The Engineering Graduate Programme Mission
We provide students with in-depth software development training, including C#, SOLID principles, SQL and React, given by our experienced Engineering team.
We know how difficult the first steps in your career are, so the Graduate Programme helps new developers to get started and build up their knowledge and skills at a comfortable pace, helping to build self-confidence.
Provide valuable skills
Our goal is to provide knowledge and skills that will support their future in the workplace. We believe that as our graduates increase their technical skills, they will be able to face the toughest of challenges.

From here the next step is your choice. Remember that support will be available at every step you take with us.
Meet our Graduates
Our graduates get hands-on experience while collaborating with some of the best minds in the EDI world. Yes, Graduates will learn from them, but our experts expect to learn from them too.
Education: "I have worked in a couple of different industries since graduating from University; for 4 years I worked for a sports technology company, delivering Goal Line technology and VAR in Football. After wanting a career change, I returned to Uni to complete my Masters in Computer Science and worked briefly for a large Aerospace company before joining DI."
Interests: "I love keeping active and playing and watching sport, in particular Football and F1. I’ve also been learning speed-cubing in my spare time."
Favourite PC/console game: "Probably FIFA, although it is a serious love/hate relationship. Nothing makes you question your life choices more than getting smashed 8-0 by a 14-year-old over the internet."
Mischa's spirit animal is: Koala (Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Peace)
Education: "All my education has been here in Peterborough, from primary school to university. The field of the industry has always been the same: I’ve wanted to work in the IT industry."
Interests: "It’s a bit of a long list because I’m that type of person that likes to keep busy. I’m a semi-professional ice hockey player here in Peterborough, that’s my main “life’s purpose” I guess you could say.
I’m also a freelance graphic designer, since starting college and being introduced to the likes of Photoshop and naturally being a creative person, I enjoy being able to create my imagination so that others can see it as well; 3D modeling is also in there, this was also something I found in college, and I’ve kept into."
Favourite PC/console game: "I can’t decide but one of the 3: Fallout 3, Fallout 4 or Fallout New Vegas. I’m a big post-apocalyptic fan if you could not tell, so the idea of an open-world apocalyptic game is perfect for me."
Jordan's spirit animal is: Lion (Power, Royalty, Authority)
Education: "Bachelor's degree in Games Technology, basically software development with more of a focus on games. I worked as a labourer at a sofa company, before moving to a LED Screen company. Hired as a software developer but became more of an engineer, managing the company’s LED Screens in the office, and assisting with installs."
Interests: "Pretty big into live music, went to my first gig in September last year, and truly caught the bug. Mainly see rock bands live, not one for the mosh pits, but relatively too happy to sing my heart out. I am a big gamer, either watching streamers or playing games, big fan of the Assassins Creed and Borderlands series. On the other side, I follow football quite religiously, unfortunately, I am a Manchester United fan, so I’m basically miserable."
Favourite PC/console game: "Football Manager 2021, as a Manchester United supporter, it’s nice to see us win something even if it’s only in a game. Currently in the year 2043, with like 400 hours in."
Chris's spirit animal is: Deer (Grace, Agility, Intuition)
What is your route to success?
On successful completion of the graduate training programme, we will welcome you as a full-time member of one of our development teams, where you will start contributing to our production systems.
"I’ve always wanted to work in software development, and I love learning so being taught from the ground up in a professional environment sounded like the best of both worlds."
"It was a great opportunity to get into the industry- it was just at the right level for me coming out of a BootCamp."
"I wanted to expose myself to industry-standard development practices and work on a wide array of challenging problems."
