Who are you?

You’d love to help teachers teach and students learn. You believe education provides hope and opportunity. It changes lives. You’ve probably experienced the transformational power of education in your own life. And you’ve probably wondered that the fundamental technologies of education — the classroom, the chalkboard, the textbook — are all hundreds, even thousands, of years old. Information technology has been transforming the world for thirty years — where are the breakthrough technologies for learning?

You want to work with a team of people who genuinely care about other people. You are excited about connecting with people around a shared purpose. You want to spend your time working towards something valuable. You reflect and learn from your successes, and failures — you are interested in learning, and in sharing what you can do with a team of others.

You thrive in fast-paced, small-team environments.

You are a problem solver.

You have a positive, can-do attitude.

You are pursuing a bachelor’s degree or higher, and enjoy a systematic approach to problem solving.

This will be a valuable experience for any student looking for professional development with a technology company, or in the education industry.
