Each participant is matched to two or three teams based on their skills and interests (some combination of product, marketing, analytics, engineering, and design), paired with a dedicated mentor, and given the opportunity to spend three to four months doing a deep dive on each team. Its a program designed for learning and development, career exploration, relationship-building, and significant contribution to the business in other words, both intensive learning and meaningful doing.
