Program overview


Get a head start

You can participate in the program during your final months of active duty service. It’s more than an internship: we only work with companies who commit to offering full-time employment opportunities.


Gain invaluable experience

Even if the company or role isn’t a perfect fit at the end of your fellowship, you’ll gain incredible commercial experience that almost nobody else has when they leave the military.

Multiple paths

Be ready for your future

You’ll gain a deep understanding of the types of roles that exist, how to negotiate for higher compensation packages, and gain a clear understanding of exactly what you want from a future employer.


Affirm is dedicated to changing the way consumer finance works. They build honest financial products that help people prosper.

Their core product allows people to buy now and pay over time. Because of their technology, they can offer financing to more customers than traditional credit. Consumer finance is still very broken, but they’re only just getting started.

“Affirm welcomes military fellows into our growing team as part of our mission to build a company that reflects the rich diversity of the customers we serve and that includes our veterans and their families.” Max Levchin—Co-founder & CEO, Affirm


Building something big together.

From how you get home from work, to how you eat meals, or how you move huge shipments of absolutely anything, the work we contribute moves the world a few steps forward. And that’s one of the best parts about working at Uber—knowing that the work you do helps shape the future.

“One of my favorite things about interviewing with Uber is how open they were to the skill sets that I brought to the table, and not necessarily the jobs I had in the past. They were able to find projects that suited my interests and capabilities.” Brendan Morin—Air Force Space Operations Officer

Okta is The Identity Cloud

Millions of people rely on Okta to securely connect to the technologies and services that let them do their most important work.

“By partnering with organizations like Shift, Okta hopes to create a more inclusive work environment for veterans and ease their transition into the civilian workforce.” Ashleigh Early—Sr. Manager, Sales Development, Affirm


A real estate tech company reinventing accommodations the way ride-sharing reinvented personal transportation.

Parallel designs and operates locally inspired short term rental properties that offer a professional, reliable and delightful experience, far above what travelers get when they rent from an individual homeowner.

“I never thought I’d be working at a tech company but the risk has paid off so well for me and it will for them too.” Jared Blake—Army Financial Management Technician
