If you are a regular reader of this blog you have a pretty good idea of the wide range of technologies and techniques we get to play with supporting NDI's partner organizations abroad in 60-some countries. It's our job to improve solid democracy promotion ideas by judicious application of appropriate tech.
To work with us you have to be passionate about NDI's mission supporting and strengthening democratic institutions worldwide. A background in social activism, domestic politics, or international development is a good base. You've also gotta be in love with technology and the way it is shaping the world. If you have created a web site just to learn how to do it, or want to stay up late on a Friday night managing critical real-time data flowing in from a hotly contested a Nigerian election, or argued the real impact of internet monitoring on speech, you're our kind of person.
We can promise you a wildly varied job researching new technologies, working closely with our regional teams, playing with cool tools, writing on this blog, doing paperwork* and wrangling social media - all in the name of creating more just societies around the world. Oh, the position is even paid. Come apply!
* Sorry, but it is an internship.
