“I was recruited by Ultimate Software’s talent acquisition director at the University of Florida’s career fair where I was looking at other companies, but something about his passion for the company drew me in. I talked with other Ultimate developers, and they all had the same enthusiasm. The interview process evaluated how well I could apply classroom knowledge to real-world programming problems, but overall it was unlike any other interview process I had gone through: I was treated like I was special—like they wanted me, too.”
Joseph Cutrono, Director of Research (former TechSTAR intern, 2006)

Software Engineering Internship, TechSTARS

Starting in 2006 with two summer interns, Ultimate’s TechSTARS program has grown to a year-round program welcoming 150 people annually. We offer talented, motivated engineers a “People First” culture, fun activities and community service opportunities, and growth as both individuals and technology professionals. The intensive, technical learning and mentorship received as TechSTARS allow our alumni to join Ultimate as full-time developers (45% of current staff) and test engineers (65%), and many alumni have taken team and technical leadership positions as their careers progress.

We welcome our TechSTARS into our fun culture by including them on Ultimate department events, including Ultimate-sponsored trips to Universal Studios and Disney World in Orlando with our families, and we have special events just for TechSTARS that encourage bonding. Recent TechSTAR bonding events include a Duck Tour in Miami, lunch on South Beach as a team, and an evening at Marlins Park in Ultimate’s private box watching the Florida Marlins baseball team play and enjoying appetizers, drinks, and casual dinner food during the game.

Over the last eight-year period, 98% of interns have accepted our full-time positions when we offer them. New hires from our TechSTARS program include people who have previously either interned or worked full-time at such companies as Google, Apple, and Lockheed Martin.

"Six months ago, I left my full-time job at another company to be a TechSTAR at Ultimate Software, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Ultimate truly does invest in and care about its people. I’ve learned so much, and enjoyed every minute of it. Not only has every person I’ve met been willing to go out of their way to help me learn and grow, but many of them have also become very good friends already. From spontaneous NERF gun fights, to happy hours, to hours-long conversations about philosophy, technology, and much more, my coworkers have already become a second family, and I’m looking forward to continuing my career here."
Natalie Weinstein, Software Test Engineer, TechSTARS graduate

"Over the course of my time as a TechSTAR, I found myself saying, ‘It isn’t just coming in to do a job…it’s getting to do what you love with some of the greatest people you will ever meet.’ Ultimate creates a culture that makes us excited to be here, and to be a part of this family. I worked on projects, and had a real say in my work. It was challenging, impactful, and fun. I was constantly learning and growing and am so thankful for the entire experience."
Molly Merritt, Software Engineer, TechSTARS graduate
