Intern at the Sahana Software Foundation in software development and design!

The Sahana Software Foundation supports a number of free software Disaster Management Projects that are used by organizations throughout the world such as the Red Cross and United Nations to support disaster mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. We're running our Software Development Internship program again this year from November to March and this time we're also looking to for interns to work on UI/UX design. These are a virtual internships and are open to applicants from any country. If you want to put your coding or design skills to use to build solutions which help people affected by disasters then this is your chance! Please share this among your own networks.

Software Developer Internships

  • These internships will suit someone with some skills in coding web applications and who is interested in gaining more experience. Software Developer interns will support the Sahana Eden project (Python) or Sahana Vesuvius project (PHP) by working on tasks such as supporting deployments, fixing bugs, writing automated tests, porting and refactoring code and their own projects.

Design Internships

  • These internships will suit someone with a background in user interface and user experience (UI/UX) design. Design interns will evaluate the usability of the Sahana software and develop designs to improving the user experience of the software. Ideally this intern will also have experience in HTML, JS & CSS.

Interns will work with a mentor from the Sahana community and be expected to work an average of 4 hours each week throughout the internship. At the end of the internship the intern will receive US$ 500. If you are interested in either of these internships please fill out this application. Preference will be given to applicants who have made prior contributions to Sahana Eden or Sahana Vesuvius – so have a go at fixing a bug before you apply! Applications for both internships will end 13th October 2013.
