Engineering Residents


AI Residency Program: Engineering Residency Program is a 6-month training program designed for fresh graduates. Upon successful completion, the residents will be eligible to join AI engineering and applied team at VinAI. The program covers theoretical AI knowledge, hands-on coding skills with practical experience of working on real projects.


VinAI Engineering Residency program is a 6-month program, providing its members a training period to become successful AI Engineers with both good AI programming skills and a deep understanding of modern machine learning and deep learning models.

Each member participating in the program will be experienced and trained according to a learning and application model in real work. The most significant difference from pure internship positions is the opportunity to take intensive courses in machine learning, computer vision, natural language processing, led by renowned researchers themselves. And a lot of experience at VinAI teaching. Besides, there is an opportunity to work with product applications to reinforce essential background knowledge within 03 months and work directly with projects and products within 03 months.

In particular, each member will be instructed and trained and evaluated, and directed work by 01 mentor in VinAI’s Applied team during the 6 months of the program.


  • Competitive compensation (up to $20.000/year for Training package).
  • Opportunity to continuously grow your knowledge in AI technology.
  • Opportunity to contribute, interact, share and learn from exceptionally talented colleagues from VinAI.
  • Opportunity to publish research outputs at top-tier AI venues.
  • Trained on AI algorithm development and problem-solving skills to tackle real-world applications.
