Who are we looking for?
Anyone with the skills and passion to make government in the Caribbean work better using technology. Prospective Fellows should enjoy working in a collaborative environment, and must also have the discipline and initiative to be self-starters. We don’t care if you’re a recent graduate trying to dip your toes into the development pool, or a seasoned practitioner who just wants to give back. All our Fellows will want to see make a difference for the Caribbean and improve the way government works.
How do I apply?
The application process begins with the completion of a simple web form. We’re looking for information about your past experiences and work product, as well as a clear indication of interest in the program. Candidates advancing in the process will be asked for interviews and references. Please see the timeline section below.
Do I need to be a coder?
We need folks who can bring new technologies into civil service and help spread change. As we create serious and innovative technology for the organization, we will certainly need high-caliber developers and programmers. But we are building small project teams here, so we’re not just looking for coders. We’ll also need strong skills in research to determine the needs of the client, project management skills to translate those needs into features, design skills to fashion those features into a usable application, and analytical skills to integrate that application into a sustainable system. We need passionate, smart, diplomatic people who get how technology can help government work better, and can convince others of the value of trying something new. If you’ve made it this far then, coder or not, we probably need YOU.
