Join DiffBlue, a recently founded Oxford University startup specialising in automated test generation. We are looking for students who will help us run our tools on open-source projects, find bugs and report them to the project developers. You will be given an opportunity to improve software quality, to practise your programming skills in an unorthodox way, and to grow within our company.

This position is especially suitable for students and candidates who require very flexible work hours, such as those on paternal leave.


  • Good knowledge of Java. You will be required to read and understand other people's code on regular basis
  • Knowledge of Linux/Unix environment, scripting and builds. We expect you to know what "./configure && make && make install" does and how to debug basic problems when it does not work.
