Internship opportunities at Kabissa


Kabissa is a networking organization that seeks to help Civil Society Organizations working in Africa to put Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to work for the benefit of their communities. We’re currently looking to fill four internships that are key to helping complete Kabissa’s transition from social business providing technology services and training to a leading niche network serving African civil society.

Ideal candidates will be self-starters able to work in an entrepreneurial online organization. Interns will be expected to help build their own teams of volunteers and manage them with the assistance of the volunteer coordinator and executive director. This is a great opportunity for someone looking for an internship with real responsibility, the ability to network with over 1,500 member organizations in over 50 African countries, and the chance to reshape one of the pioneers in the African ICT space.

We are looking for four interns to develop and lead the following four groups:

Network Team – Supporting and growing the people and organizations in the Kabissa network

The NETWORK TEAM is responsible for coordinating volunteers and representatives, managing members, and moderating groups.

Content Team – Editing and spreading content shared by Kabissa members

The CONTENT TEAM is responsible for managing, editing and spreading the content being shared on Kabissa by our members. Such items include: newsletter/special mailings, member content, and social networks outreach (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and beyond).

Platform Team – Maintaining and improving the Kabissa platform

The PLATFORM TEAM is responsible for all things tech at Kabissa – from maintaining our server to developing our open source platform. Tasks include: Drupal site maintenance, web projects management, web design, and domain registration management.

Organization Team – Ensuring the long-term sustainability of Kabissa as an organization

The ORGANIZATION TEAM is responsible for keeping Kabissa humming as an organization. Tasks include: marketing, fundraising, and governance.

(Note: Kabissa’s organizational headquarters are on Bainbridge Island (near Seattle in Washington state) but interns are welcome to apply and work from anywhere. We do have representatives in New York City and Washington DC so interns in those locations may benefit from face to face meetings.)
