“This internship at CZI will always be close to my heart since I learned exponentially both in technical aspects and networking with great minds here. I'm more flexible in working with new codebases and with an open source community, which I'll carry back to school and use as a foundation for the future.” Aakash Mahalingam joined CZI’s internship program this summer to gain hands-on experience as part of our imaging work on our science team. #CZinterns #intern #EngineeringTech #TechInternship #SoftwareEngineer

The latest conversations about Tech




Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

      I applied through an employee referral The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (United States) in Nov 2022


      I had one of my best job interview experiences with CZI through which I landed my dream technical job after working in multiple large and small companies! The interview process was by far the best interview experience in my 20 years of career so far! First, the recruiter, Roopali, closely kept me informed every step of the way and also provided great hints helping me throughout. The interviewers were all very much friendly and extremely engaged, the style that I like and appreciate a lot. This is much different from many other places in which you feel the interview is either unmotivated to engage or looking for excuse to fail you! Given this friendly and engaged setup, while the interview questions were mostly not easy or average in general, I managed to work my way through the problem without feeling pressured or unheard at all. In opposite, I felt very engaged and glad in every step. It was as if I am working on a problem with a friend or a colleague.

      After manager screening, the interview involved three coding questions (one via Karat), one design, and one career competency.
