"Over the course of my time as a TechStar, I found myself saying, 'It isn't just coming in to do a job... it's getting to do what you love with some of the greatest people you will ever meet.' Ultimate creates a culture that makes us excited to be here, and be a part of this family. I worked on projects, and had a real say in my work. It was challenging, impactful, and fun. I was constantly learning and growing and I am so thankful for the entire process."
Molly Berg, Manager of Developer Growth, Former TechStar
"I was recruited by Ultimate Software's Talent Acquisition Director at the University of Florida's career fair where I was looking at other companies, but something about his passion for the company drew me in. I talked with other Ultimate developers, and they all had the same enthusiasm. The interview process evaluated how well I could apply classroom knowledge to real-world programming problems, but overall it was unlike any other interview process I had gone through: I was treated like I was special-like they wanted me, too."
Joseph Cutrono, Senior Engineering Manager, Former TechStar
"Ultimate is such a good-natured and caring company. The interviewers were amazing. They were engaging, held captivating conversations, and made me feel truly welcomed" Ashley Narcisse, Software Engineer, Former TechStar

- Testimonials -
My time as a TechStar was challenging and enjoyable at the same time. I was put on a team that treated me like an equal; they didn't just give me the low hanging fruit/busy work. I was given pivotal tasks within the first week. As daunting as that may seem, it was a great way to learn. I was supported every step of the way by my team, not just my mentor and manager. My mentor was there for any questions big or small that I had, whether it was in regards to technical aspects or team specific information. The events we had were really fun, and the University Relations Team made sure to get to know us in an informal setting. I felt like they always wanted to make sure I was being challenged and feeling comfortable within my team. This experience surpassed all of my other internship experiences, and I am thoroughly grateful for it. Kassandra Philogene, Software Engineer
When I heard about Ultimate Software, the culture really stood out to me. I was blown away by how much the company values its employees and engineering practices. My first week as a TechStar was dedicated to boot camp, a week-long event where I learned about Ultimate, its people, and its company values. I also got to participate in different activities during the bootcamp such as a mini-hackathon, agile training, and software development workshops. After that, I began working with my team and got to develop on projects that were directly reflecting our team's offerings. I was treated like a full-time engineer and even got to show my work during standups and meetings. Midway through my internship, my UR mentor reached out to me regarding a full-time role I could interview for. With the help of my UR mentor and the TechStar program, I was well prepared for the interview and got the job! The TechStar program offered me a way to grow as an engineer, but more importantly, as a person. David Castaneda, Software Engineer
I felt very welcomed throughout the whole TechStar internship program. Even though I got sick during the introduction week and had to take two days off, the University Relations Team was so nice and sent me all the important information that I needed. The engineering team I was placed in was great, and I was treated like any other team member from the start. My UR Mentor was always there if I needed anything, and was actively looking for opportunities for me to transition to becoming a full-time employee. After a month had passed, she got me an interview with two different teams for a full-time position. Within a week of the interview, I had an offer. The transition to my new team was smooth, and I felt very welcome there. Overall it was a great experience going through the TechStar program, and I highly recommend it! Ryan Scupp, Software Engineer
