Engineering Fellows Program at Kleiner Perkins (KPCB)

KPCB Fellows spend their time working at companies like Pinterest, Coursera, DoorDash, Airbnb, Square, Slack or another company in the #KPFamily. The work experience is incredibly valuable as fellows are mentored by a senior technical leader. At the same time, you are also invited to one-of-a-kind events hosted by KPCB where you meet partners from Kleiner Perkins, CEOs and senior executives from many of our portfolio companies, and other bright fellows who will go on to change technology in the future. The idea is to expose you to as much as we can offer, so that you can leave your the summer with a better understanding of how iconic companies are built and hopefully, one day, start your own or be a part of the beginning of a new venture. As a Fellow, you’ll be joining a network of amazing alumni fellows who have gone on to be venture capitalists, start their own companies, join rapidly growing startups and so much more.

The answer to most questions can be found on

Over the course of a summer, KPCB Design and Engineering Fellows join our portfolio companies, where they develop their technical or design skills and are mentored by an executive within the company. Participants in our new Product Fellows program will get the chance to spend a full year working at a Silicon Valley startup. Fellows will also be invited to attend both private events held by Kleiner Perkins as well as by our portfolio companies, where they can meet other talented engineering and design students, network with luminaries in their respective fields, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area.
