The Management Development Program (MDP) is an elite three-year rotational program designed to develop future leaders in education, technology, and business. In this program, you’ll work across a variety of departments and functions, contributing to highly visible initiatives where you can make an impact during your first year.

This full-time six-month Fellowship program (from July through December) is an ideal opportunity to get real-world working experience and discover a career path that’s right for you. For the first three months, you’ll work on one of our onboarding teams where you’ll learn the ins and outs of the business from your colleagues, industry leaders, our customers, and even our CEO. For the final half of the program, you’ll join a team (e.g., People Operations, Marketing, Finance) that interests you, working on impactful projects to help the department reach their goals.

This program will build your knowledge and skills so you can succeed in your career from the start. And, for graduates, this is also a chance to secure a full-time role if a slot on your preferred team is available.

You’ll be matched with targeted projects to help you gain skills and experience aligned with your interests. Some examples of projects you can work on include developing features that directly benefit our users, testing to ensure code quality, and taking ownership of designing and implementing engineering solutions to enhance our products.

Starting with smaller assignments to understand our tools and processes, you will take on more complicated, larger assignments as you learn and apply your skills.
