Coursera hosts interns for 12- or 16-week internships year-round. The large majority of our internships are within the engineering team, but we’ve had interns join nearly every team at the company, including product management, data science, legal, finance, and marketing. A key purpose of our internship program is to give you the opportunity to explore whether Coursera is a good fit for you to return as a full-time employee after you graduate. Many full-time Courserians today began their careers here as interns.

Every engineering internship at Coursera centers around an impactful project touching many parts of our operations and stack. You’ll be embedded into your team, enabled to expand your skill set, and given the opportunity to deploy your work to production.

Search open roles in early September to find internship opportunities at Coursera.
