  • Other relevant skills and projects you’d like to work on (we’re open to your ideas)


About you:

  • High degree of organizational skill and problem-solving ability
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Desire to learn and grow professionally
  • Willingness to learn new technologies
  • Ability to prioritize and execute tasks and projects with a sense of urgency, accuracy, and accountability

  • Ability to work well with others

Workload: 10 hours / week with the potential for a longer engagement.

Desired Requirements:

  • Willingness to work virtually and from our office in Washington, DC
  • Occasional travel within DC for events

Compensation: We cannot offer monetary compensation, but we can offer public speaking training, books, materials, and exposure to cool events. We will cover any direct costs you incur (travel, etc.). 

For students: If your university offers college credit, we're happy to work with you on reaching your internship project goals. 

If you’d like to be part of a growing, exciting, and supportive team that believes in making everyone’s lives better, including our own, reach out to us. We look forward to meeting you!
