  • Engineering Program Managers at Cohere are seen as an operational experts, specializing in driving impactful, cross-functional efforts and managing the life cycle of critical projects. An EPM internship will challenge you in those same areas. Whilst the role is still relatively new, the EPM team already has a battle-tested reputation of adding significant value. Interns with the EPM title will be expected to learn how to show up like an owner to strategically plan ahead, and constantly go “hands-on” to tactically execute. 
  • EPM intern candidates will be successful at Cohere if they not only survive, but thrive in an environment containing a high level of change and ambiguity. Natural skills in developing relationships with smart and stubborn people, creative lateral thinking skills in new situations, and proven organizational abilities across a tangle of work streams are critical for an EPM intern to build trust, solve problems, and add value during their time at Cohere. 
  • EPM interns with these skills will be uniquely rewarded at Cohere. They will build strong 1:1 partnerships with the best people in the AI industry. They will immediately have leadership opportunities across Cohere, with company-level visibility and impact. At this stage in the company where we’re helping to define the industry but have significant customers, the EPM skills they develop will have an incredible multiplier effect on success; you can essentially change things as fast as you can execute on them.
  • EPM interns will be exposed to and get to learn amazing new things. LLMs are one of the most important technologies of our generation, and EPM interns will be deeply immersed in the area alongside executive, research, development, marketing, and sales teams in contexts and scenarios they wouldn’t get in any other internship. One minute they might be taking notes in a XF meeting you’re running with a key Cohere customer, the next minute they might be DMing our CEO with an ask from their teams.
  • Please Note: To be eligible for this position, you should be currently enrolled in a post-secondary program and available for a full-time 3-6 month internship, co-op, or research work term (May - August). We have offices in Toronto, Palo Alto, and London but embrace being remote-first! There are no restrictions on where you can be located for this role.


  • Are pursuing education in Business, Communications or Computer Science.
  • Have fundamental knowledge of how machine learning works, and basic knowledge of NLP and Large Language Models (LLM).
  • Have personal hands-on understanding of the unique challenges of managing school or internship projects and programs in the AI/ML space.
  • Have the capacity for critical self-reflection, a thorough understanding of your own strengths and weakness, and the desire to improve your professional capabilities over time.
