The Silicon Valley Internship Programme

The Silicon Valley Internship Program gives newly graduating Software Engineering Students (and related disciplines) the unique experience of working at a tech company 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 candidates are matched with tech companies in the Bay Area and will work as an integral part of their engineering team. Candidates are paid a salary of $80,000 for the year. The SVIP arranges for US work visas, provides flights to and from San Francisco and organises each candidate’s first month of accommodation. In addition to this, The SVIP hosts regular ‘Meet the Entrepreneur’ and ‘Hackathon’ events, which take The SVIP participants through the company formation process from idea to revenue. You must meet each of the following requirements in order to be considered for a place on the Silicon Valley Internship Programme:

  • You have graduated from University within the last five years, or are expected to graduate before September 2023.
  • You have a Computer Science, Software Engineering or other STEM degree that included a significant amount of coding.
  • You are excited to move to the San Francisco Bay Area (Silicon Valley) in California for 1 year or 18 months beginning in September 2023.
