Gunderson Dettmer employees comprise a rich diversity of colleagues of different backgrounds and skills essential to our global reach. We are committed to building a community of dynamic professionals with an entrepreneurial spirit who share our core values. Gunderson seeks agile team players and idea generators who embrace professionalism, humility, respect, and technology.
Gunderson Dettmer’s campus recruiting approach is different from other firms. We look for students that have experience as innovators, entrepreneurs, in venture development, and in technology.
We challenge every lawyer at Gunderson to be as entrepreneurial and innovative as the people that hire us. Our clients expect smart, informed, anticipatory counsel from intuitive, networked, creative, pragmatic, disciplined lawyers. We expect the same in our candidates.
Our people are our most valuable resource. We will recruit, train and promote the best people. We will work together to create an environment in which each of our people can grow, take initiative, and develop a fun, fulfilling and financially rewarding career.
1L Diversity Fellowship applications are now open for our 2023 Summer Program in our Ann Arbor, Austin, Bay Area, Boston, Los Angeles, New York and San Diego offices.
"It's rare to see such highly-skilled, connected people who are just so personable. They are so much fun to be with."
“The candidates that resonate with us are the ones who say ‘I love the idea of being involved day one and still being there years later to take them through a big acquisition.’ It’s a life changing event for them and us.”
“Our focus is our strength. Our commitment to being the best reinforces that. We are more concerned about quality than quantity.”
