From both our hometown of Birmingham, AL, and our office in San Francisco, CA, Shipt is creating a product and a community that makes people’s lives better in a myriad of ways. Working towards the goal of positively impacting real people in their everyday lives is what Shipt and its people are all about.

This is a remote (or hybrid for those based in Birmingham, AL, San Francisco, CA, or Minneapolis, MN) Summer 2023 Internship. Our program will run for 10 weeks, beginning on June 5, 2023, and ending on August 11, 2023. Full program participation is required of all interns. Interns are expected to maintain a consistent full-time work schedule throughout the duration of their internship.
