Google invites applications for the 2018 Summer Trainee Engineering Program, STEP in Israel which is open to all qualified university students. Students who are a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry are encouraged to apply, including women, ethnic minorities and students with disabilities.
Google is invested in increasing the number of future computer scientists and software developers, particularly those who are historically underrepresented in the field. Many aspiring computer scientists could benefit from a program that bridges the gap between academic study and a professional internship. Google wants to inspire these students to continue in the field with such a program.
STEP candidates must be available to work full-time from 6th August 2018 – 31st October 2018, and then part-time (minimum 2 days per week) from the 31st October 2018 to 31st December 2018, as part of this program.
