As the e-commerce industry continues to grow, so does the
need for tech talent that can help support the industry’s growth. Shopee, the
leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, recognizes this need
and aims to help develop young professionals to produce future industry leaders
through its internship program.
Shopee’s internship program is a 3 to 5 month program that
introduces eligible undergraduates to the e-commerce industry and immerses them
into the fast-paced sector. Shopee interns are provided with opportunities to
get firsthand experience working on nation-wide projects and campaigns, as they
collaborate with their teammates and supervisors. Shopee also provides
resources and training for interns to grow and learn during this period. This
includes weekly Learning & Organizational Development classes,
opportunities to shadow their supervisors, and integration in employee engagement events.

Philippines Head of People, said “Shopee will continue
to cultivate talent with its vibrant and collaborative working environment.
Life at Shopee is about making sure that everyone has the best opportunities
presented to them, and that they learn and upskill themselves with real-world
Three Shopee interns shared what being an intern for Shopee is like.
A unique internship
Alli, an intern under Shopee’s marketing team, shared that
one of the defining characteristics of a Shopee internship is how interns are
given the opportunity to directly contribute to the content produced by the
team. “At Shopee, we’re trusted as if we are full time employees. My
supervisors give me opportunities to take on big tasks. It truly is a unique
experience in that we are given hands-on work where you’re really involved in
the entire process—from brainstorming to the actual execution of the projects.
You get to pitch your own ideas, make decisions, and maximize your own

Mika, an intern working with the People team, really liked the culture at Shopee, where she and her fellow interns felt like they were part of the Shopee Family. “Even when I was still a new intern, I already felt as if I had been here for quite some time. It’s very easy to get along with everyone here, and to get my message across even during meetings, especially because Shopee’s team guides you every step of the way. Even if we’re just interns, we’re also empowered to speak our minds and contribute ideas.”
An engaging learning
Meanwhile Jewel, an intern for Shopee’s Marketing team,
said that he was able to hone his skills through the opportunities Shopee
provides. “I’m always given the chance to learn through the tasks that I’m
given, and I'm able to do my best and overcome any challenges thanks to the guidance
of my team. I’ve picked up new skills here—for example, I’m able to write
better and manage my time well. My supervisors ensure I have all the tools and
resources I need to do my best. They’ll teach you everything you need to know,
and even then there’s still so much to learn from Shopee.”
Alli, Mika, and Jewel believe that talents who are
interested in joining Shopee’s internship program can expect both personal and
professional growth. “Being part of Shopee really allows you to believe in
yourself and your capabilities, as you continuously grow and learn” Mika
