What is the Plank Fellowship?

Each fellowship cohort learns and collaborates closely as a team, working in-person from one of our Plank centers, under the direct supervision and mentorship of Plank’s senior engineers throughout the the fellowship

All selected fellows get paid an attractive monthly salary for the duration of the fellowship.

The first 2 months of the fellowship involves intensive training in the cutting-edge languages, frameworks, services, and methodologies that are required to succeed in the real world

The intensive training period is followed by 10 months of working directly with Plank’s commercial partners on real world projects - you will interact with senior executives and industry leaders from around the world, and get a front row seat to how fast growing companies build amazing products.

At the end of the fellowship, fellows who have successfully completed the 1 year fellowship will be invited to join Plank as a full-time core team member.
