The Silicon Valley Internship Programme

The Silicon Valley Internship Program gives newly graduating Software Engineering Students (and related disciplines) the unique experience of working with hot tech companies in the San Francisco Bay Area through a one-year paid internship. The aim is that through this experience, SVIP interns will pick up and bring back a little bit of the Silicon Valley culture to the entrepreneurial community at home. Successful applicants are matched with a tech company in the Bay Area and will work as an integral part of their 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.

  • You have graduated from University within the last five years, or are expected to graduate Summer 2022.
  • You have a Computer Science, software engineering or other STEM degree that included a significant amount of software development experience.
  • You are willing to move to the San Francisco Bay Area (Silicon Valley) in California for 1 year or 18 months.
  • You have the desire and productivity to commit to learning about entrepreneurship alongside a full time role as a developer.
