The I/Own It Scholarship and Internship opportunities have been open for two weeks now and the feedback from students has been overwhelming! Alongside being a leader in digital experience optimization, Optimizely is committed to doing what it takes to create a diverse and inclusive workspace, including launching a company mentorship program.


Jessica Chong, a former recipient of the Optimizely scholarship and now Senior Engineer said, “I feel extremely lucky to have had access to this internship. While a lot of my Hack Reactor friends were going through the job interview process, I was already getting hands-on experience in a large-scale codebase.” Jessica was awarded the scholarship along with two other recipients when the program first launched, and now works on the Optimizely engineering team. She ran the 2017 scholarship program.

Scholarship awardees will be eligible for:

  • A full scholarship to the January immersive program

  • A $1500 monthly living stipend provided by Optimizely

  • A three-month internship with Optimizely upon graduation
