Robinhood’s mission is to democratize finance for all. It was founded by two Stanford graduates who had previously built two finance companies selling trading software to hedge funds when they realized Wall Street firms pay almost nothing to trade stocks, while the average American is charged $10 a trade. Robinhood was ranked #26 on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work in 2018 and a LinkedIn Top Startup in 2019.
Robinhood has internship programs year-round for a variety of roles. During the program, interns work in a team where they work on various projects to help Robinhood fulfill its mission. Interns typically have a dedicated mentor who will help you navigate through your internship and Robinhood as a whole. Interns also usually work cross-functionally with other departments and teams.
