Snap Up

Launched in 2019, the Snap Up Program is our new grad rotational software engineering program that is designed to bridge the opportunity gap for upcoming college grads with limited to no relevant intern work experience.

New hires joining Snap Up start as full-time Software Engineer Apprentices and participate in three rotations during the program, spending three-four months on different teams across the Core Engineering, Camera Platform and Generative ML Platform organizations. 

By providing the opportunity for apprentices to work on impactful projects and gain hands-on industry experience, this program will help bring them up to speed with the leveling expectations of the next level of Software Engineer.

How We Interview

The Snap Up interview process is a two step process:

  • First Round: One hour video interview hosted on Google Hangouts conducted through CodePair HackerRank. You will be mainly assessed for a baseline of functional skills and the following competencies:

  • Coachability & appetite to learn

  • Core algorithms and coding proficiency

  • Data structure manipulation and usage

  • Debugging & testing

Final Round: The onsite interview is a single project that you’ll be given four hours to complete. Snap engineers will rotate through the interview to provide tips and answer any questions you have!
