Hulu is a premium streaming TV destination that seeks to captivate and connect viewers with the stories they love. We create amazing experiences that celebrate the best of entertainment and technology. We’re looking for great people who are passionate about redefining TV through innovation, unconventional thinking and embracing fun. It’s a mission that takes some serious smarts, intense curiosity and determination to be the best. Come be part of the team that’s powering play.


(We have Hulu Development offices in Los Angeles, CA and Seattle, WA)

We're excited to offer summer internships which provide university students an opportunity to work on significant business-impacting projects. You will have direct interaction with all levels of the company, including members of our leadership team. Instead of making coffee or testing somebody else’s code, our interns design and code their own projects and present their work to our technology and business leaders at the end. And, you’ll be having a blast biking around Santa Monica or Downtown Seattle, hanging at the ocean, and enjoying a whole slew of after-hour Hulu shenanigans.
