We’re looking for a paid, full-time intern to join us at Octophin Digital in Islington, London over the next six months.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about software development through helping us build tools for leading conservation organisations and projects around the world.
We’re a digital agency focused on the wildlife conservation sector, made up of people with a background in and passion for this work. We develop all kinds of software including interactive maps and databases, games, community sites, software for conservation technology hardware and lots more.
We’ve built things for wonderful organisations including:
ZSL, Fauna and Flora International, WILDLABS.NET, Birdlife International, The Conservation Leadership Programme, Arribada Initiative, The Angel Shark Project, The Chagos Conservation Trust, IUCN, Trillion Trees, IIED, TerrAdapt and others.
Aside from building great software that helps conservationists, our second aim as a company is a focus on training and mentoring, especially of people from underrepresented backgrounds.
It’s a six month placement starting around September 2022, fully based in London with a salary pinned to the London Living Wage.
No prior experience of software development is needed, instead, the best candidates will have the patience to keep trying when things don’t work and a desire to learn new things.
To apply, please send a short covering letter (no CV required) to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us who you are and why you’d love to do this placement. We’ll then arrange a short in person or telephone interview.
We’ll interview everyone who applies if they fit the three criteria of having a passion for conservation, a desire to learn about writing software and being able to be based in London for six months.
Application deadline August 15th, 2022.
