Internships at Applied

Applied is a company on a mission - we are passionate about hiring the best person for the job regardless of race, gender or whether your dad plays golf with the CEO on weekends.

So far we've helped hundreds of teams hire 1000s of awesome, diverse people by removing the biases inherent in hiring and helping people focus on what matters - but, as you'd hope, our sights are set much higher. Maybe you can help...

We're looking for curious and creative interns that can take initiative and want to help us leave the world just a little better than we found it. And this is a great moment for doing an internship with us. We have a fast growing team, and we have already helped our customers hire over 2,500 people many of whom (according to our data) would have been overlooked in a traditional hiring process.

These achievements rely on a team that truly stands for what we believe in: talent from diverse backgrounds, impatient to deliver and keen to get stuck in – full of ideas, able to get things done, and an ability to inspire and support the growth of others around them. A team who thrives on learning, empathy and grit.

The internship

We're looking for someone who is:

  • passionate about using their skills to make a difference.

  • compassionate about collaborating with others and working through uncertainty to get things done.

  • keen to participate in and distill valuable insights from user research.


  • get to experience life in a fast-growing startup with a clear social impact.

  • meet our customers. We build features and products for real people and so we love going to chat to them, it's the best way to understand what they want.

  • learn quickly

  • be listened to and taken seriously.
