Gain exposure to critical business practices and cutting-edge technology that puts you on the fast track for career growth. After a preliminary career track discussion, you are assigned to your first six-month rotation. There are multiple teams to chose from with varying focuses: you could be on a team where you brush up on your C++ programing, rotate to a securities team, and then jump on an AI team that focuses on machine learning. The sky is the limit with Bentley Systems! There are hundreds of rotational variations and with one-on-one mentoring, you are guided every step of the way.

“My experience at Bentley Systems has been amazing so far. Under the Graduate Development Program, I had the chance to work on three different ongoing projects, thereby learning many things from mentors whose professional approach toward their work is commendable. Working on these projects, I was also able to adapt to new languages and different systems. I feel glad to be a part of such a challenging and positive work environment, where I not only gained technical experience but also made some good connections as well. I could recognize the best of my abilities.”

“The Graduate Development Program has been a great learning experience. The opportunity to try out different technologies allowed me to better understand and learn base underlying concepts of software engineering instead of specifics of some technology stack. Along the way, I have met truly inspiring people who spared no time or effort in trying to help me become a better engineer and person in general. The ability to change and adapt is what drives us forward, and multiple rotations have helped me to experience that for myself.”

“I started my journey with Bentley Systems as an intern and then joined as an associate through the Graduate Development Program. The program has given me a chance to work on different products across the organization. Apart from the different technology stacks, the rotation structure gave me an opportunity to work with different teams, where I learned a lot about software-engineering concepts, multitasking, and work management. I feel fortunate to have closely worked with supportive, highly knowledgeable, and experienced people. I also had the chance to work with overseas mentors and colleagues, which gave me exposure to a culturally diverse environment. Overall, it’s been a great experience as it’s helping me to grow my roots technically, as well as professionally.”
