Announcing Databricks Engineering Fellowship

We are excited to announce a new program called Databricks Engineering Fellowship to recognize new graduates with exceptional academic achievements or extracurricular impact, in the field of computer science. This fellowship supports new graduates joining Databricks in all areas relevant to Databricks engineering, covering computer systems, databases, frontend development, infrastructure, machine learning, security, and more.

There are two important aspects of this fellowship program:

  • Each recipient will receive $100,000 sign-on in financial support upon joining.
  • Each recipient will also be paired with a senior engineer who is a world-class expert in their respective domain as a career and technical mentor.

How do I apply?

Simply apply through the normal university recruiting process. There is no separate application process. All new graduate candidates (including Bachelors, Masters, and PhDs) receiving a job offer from Databricks will be reviewed automatically by the Fellowship Award Committee and will be notified should additional information be required. For candidates with academic research experience, we encourage recommendation letters from the supervising professors. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis.

Who qualifies?

You must pass our new grad interview process and receive an offer, and join Databricks engineering full-time after graduation for two or more years. We look for candidates with exceptional academic achievement, research experience, and/or extracurricular impact.

We are starting with candidates only in the United States this year, but will expand to other countries in the future.
