Salesforce is excited to announce that applications are now open for the next cohort of its AI Residency Program.
About the Program
This research training program is intended to kickstart or further one's experience in AI research. Residents will gain valuable hands-on experience in basic and applied AI research, working closely with Salesforce researchers. As part of our team, you’ll learn unique skills, work with talented people, influence the industry standard for fair and ethical use of artificial intelligence, and help us shape the future of AI.
Our goal is to help propel residents’ careers forward to the next level. For those recently graduated with an M.S. or Ph.D. degree, our AI Residency will give them world-class research experience that will prepare them to transition into positions as full-time AI researchers.
While in the Program, AI Research Residents will be interns at Salesforce and expected to:
About Salesforce AI Research
Salesforce AI Research is dedicated to pioneering innovation in Artificial Intelligence, deep learning, machine learning, natural language processing (NLP), and related fields. Our team is committed to collaborating with the wider research community; while our scientists have the opportunity to work directly on advancing technologies that customers use as part of the Einstein AI Platform, they may also focus exclusively on high-impact publications. We believe that making substantive progress on hard applications can drive and sharpen the research questions we study, and, in turn, scientific breakthroughs can spawn entirely new applications. With this in mind, the team maintains a portfolio of projects.
The Salesforce AI Residency Program will foster the careers of the next generation of AI researchers and applied engineers.

The Salesforce AI Residency Program will help prepare residents for (and propel them to) the next level in their careers. Here are four primary reasons why our Program is the perfect place to achieve this goal of accelerated career success:
Impact: You’ll Do Meaningful Work - and Publish It
As a Salesforce AI Resident, you will contribute to open-source projects, influence product development, and contribute to new AI research directions, innovative products, and applications. You will also have the opportunity to make your impact on meaningful research and share your findings with the academic community. Residents will be highly encouraged to submit work to top-tier conferences such as NeurIPS, ICLR, ICML, EMNLP, ACL, and many more.
Best of Both Worlds: Big Company and Small “Startup”
While Salesforce is a large enterprise (one of the world’s most successful companies), we’re proud to foster many qualities of a startup – especially on our AI Research team, since we’re a relatively small group. You’ll enjoy the benefits of a big company (resources, connections, global reputation) and a startup (personal attention, community, opportunity to stand out).
Outstanding in Your Field? You’ll Stand Out on Our Team
If you want to make your mark in AI, our AI Residency Program is for you. Here's why:
You’ll Make Lasting Connections
Our Program is a great place to make lasting professional connections. During your residency at Salesforce AI Research, you’ll have the chance to collaborate and connect with fellow researchers, and our group is structured to encourage communication with any member of the team. For example, you can talk directly with an EVP or other members of our team leadership, something that’s harder to do at other large tech companies.
Our Palo Alto office is the main hub for Salesforce AI Research, where we have cultivated a team of diverse backgrounds. Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, our office is at the center of innovation and in close proximity to the company’s San Francisco headquarters.
Depending on the state of the COVID-19 in 2023, we expect that the AI Residency will either be onsite in Palo Alto or remote.
