Skills

Your attention to detail is impeccable

You know the devil is in the detail, and your meticulous nature and dedication to process trumps the threat. The integrity of our data is a core value, and you understand that it take a tremendous amount of focus to get there.

You're independent and self-motivated

You can handle a wide variety of tasks without constant supervision. You relish the chance to own your projects – you're confident and capable.

You're organized and diligent

You can multitask because you keep things in order. You're timely. And you leave breadcrumbs so others could figure out how you got the job done.

You ask questions

You don't assume. Instead, you learn a system inside and out so you can make the most of your experience. You're not afraid to say you don't know. You see critique as a good thing and hope to learn from it.

You have a team ethos

You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced start-up environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You're excited to work cross-functionally with other departments.

Commitment

We're looking for a student or recent graduate to start in late May/early June and commit to the entire summer at the charity: water office. We'll need you at least 3 days a week, but we think you'll have so much fun you'll never want to leave. Please only apply if you are located in the New York City area or willing to relocate.

Compensation

This is an unpaid internship - but is an exceptional opportunity to gain experience at an international non-profit with an ambitious mission. We will gladly work with your institution to give you academic credit for your experience.
