The Software Engineering Fellowship is a unique track within our software engineering internship program that focuses on promoting learning, career development, and professional skills, helping students create connections between their academic work and the technology industry. Fellows will explore the fundamentals of good software design and work alongside a professional mentor to grow their skills.

This is a 12-week paid, full-time internship for undergraduate students with a desire to learn and a passion for technology. Although all students are welcome to apply, this program is targeted towards rising sophomore and junior students (class of 2025 and 2026) who have not previously held a software engineering internship.

The Fellowship is a hybrid experience based out of our Chicago office. The summer program includes numerous opportunities to network with peers from across the country during a summer full of experiences such as a boat tour on Lake Michigan, tours of our data center, trading and coding challenges with prizes, an outing at an MLB game, lunch and learn speaker series, and other opportunities for professional development.
