The SVIP gives newly graduating Software Engineering students the unique experience of working with hot tech companies in Silicon Valley through a one-year, paid internship. The aim is that through this experience, these engineers will bring a little of the Silicon Valley attitude and culture back to the entrepreneurial community at home. Successful applicants are matched with high growth tech companies and will work a typical developer role as an integral part of their paired company's engineering team. Over the course of the year, the SVIP intern will have the opportunity to take part in a variety of hackathons and events to learn about the entrepreneurial process as they work on their own startup ideas. We’re looking for candidates who have the raw brain power and flexibility to make them a valuable asset to their startup, as well a healthy dose of entrepreneurial spirit.
