Starting your career at DoorDash is a great way to get real experience working with senior engineering on real projects to develop your skills.
At DoorDash, we believe that interns are essential to our mission of attracting and retaining top talent. During our 12 week internship, interns are completely immersed into our teams and will have the opportunity to develop, maintain, and ship products. Your summer internship experience will kick off with a 1 week Engineering Bootcamp where you will participate in tailored engineering intern programming including developmental technical onboarding sessions, leadership presentations and panels, and interactive events to welcome you to DoorDash! For the rest of the summer, you will make a direct impact on our business by collaborating with your team to solve real problems for our customers. The summer also includes 1:1 mentorship by top rated engineers, events to connect with fellow interns and company leaders, and full time conversion opportunities.
Prior to starting at DoorDash, we give interns the opportunity to review all our engineering teams taking on interns to match their own interests and development areas. This gives interns a more tailored experience by expressing which part of DoorDash they get to work with to gain the greatest learning experience and an exciting summer!
DoorDash interns gain industry that cannot be learned in the classroom by embedding with Engineering teams and completing real projects. Learn more about the projects past interns have completed here.
