Our rotational program is a unique opportunity for curious, analytically-minded, and empathetic entry-level candidates to jump into the world of consumer tech and explore their career interests by experiencing full-time roles on two or three different business teams. 

Each participant is matched to two or three teams based on their skills and interests (some combination of product management, marketing, analytics, software engineering, and product 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.

At the end of the program, participants will be matched to a long-term role that lives at the intersection of 1) their career aspirations, strengths, and interests, and 2) business opportunities that are high-impact and strategically-important.
