Calling all software grads. Apply for a 1 year paid internship in Silicon Valley.

How it works

Apply now

Complete the application, where you'll be required to submit your CV, answer a quick coding challenge, and tell us about an interesting project you've worked on. Be sure to make your application stand out - we receive a lot!


If successful, you will be invited to interview with the SVIP, where we'll ask all about your technical passions and entrepreneurial aspirations, before passing you through to interview with Bay Area startups if you get through the first round. SVIP will match you with the companies we feel align best with your interests.

Come and work

If you manage to get an offer (well done!), SVIP will guide you through the process of securing a J1 visa, flights, accommodation for the first month, and everything else you need to get up and running in the Bay Area - before shipping out in late August!
