- Testimonials -

I started as a TechStar in the Summer of 2020. I recently graduated and was now ready to put what I learned to use. My internship was virtual because of the COVID-19 Pandemic but my experience was still very fun and engaging. They sent me equipment I would need to make my work experience at home enjoyable and efficient. By the third day of the internship I was already doing real work and getting real-world experience! I was assigned an awesome mentor that guided me throughout my internship and gave me wonderful advice on a lot of things. It was thanks to my mentor and my team that I was able to experience a lot of different technical areas. The team in charge of interns made sure everyone was healthy and also had many virtual events where we can all have fun and relax. I got to experience the awesome company culture and also learn a lot from everyone. All in all, the TechStar program is the best I've experienced and I highly recommend it!Simon Wang, Software Engineer

I got an intern position at UKG during Grace Hopper Celebration 2018. The onboarding process during my internship was incredibly thoughtful and organized as they gave me enough support to get used to the internal development tools and company culture. During the internship I was assigned with a mentor that could help me with various challenging tasks. Knowing that I have someone who can support me, I was able to take initiative on difficult tasks without letting fear of failure get the better of me. My mentor not only helped me with technical problems, but also checked up on me regularly during our one on one meetings. I grew to become a more independent and confident software developer thanks to my mentor. Vanessa Peng, Software Engineer

I started working here as an intern pretty early into my career and was always welcomed with open arms on every team I worked with. Everyone was always willing to answer any questions I had or just talk about movies and shows while working next to each other. It was surreal to get a full time offer with a team that didn't know who I was, but believed I could be a valuable person to them. I appreciate everything that UKG has done for me and wouldn't trade my experience for anything. Dannie Martin, Software Engineer
