How? You’ll get a backstage pass to the tech that’s shaping the future, learn from the best of the best and connect with a vibrant community of technical founders, engineers and startup operators.
The Startmate Engineering Fellowship is a 4-week, virtual program that facilitates learning, growth and connection with a community of like-minded technical peers.
The Engineering Fellowship connects experienced engineers from outside the startup ecosystem with our vibrant community of early-stage ANZ startups and broad network of investors and partners. It’s been designed to help you rediscover your curiosity, love of tech and that fresh engineering feeling.
We will offer a limited number of Engineering Fellows one-on-one coaching support with a technical leader from our community. Whether you're transitioning to people leadership, want to build your tech-lead muscles, or are planning your career trajectory, we’ll match you with a coach who can help. Please see the application form for more details.
The Startmate Engineering Fellowship is for experienced engineers of all disciplines seeking to build their network within the early-stage startup community.
Many of the startups in our community are software companies, but there are also high growth companies spanning deep tech, hardware, biomedical technology, climatetech, agtech and more. If you have a professional background in an engineering or technical role, we'd love you to join our community.
Regardless of whether you’re actively looking for work, considering a job change in the future, or just want to explore cool tech and join a community of peers, the Fellowship is for you!
