Interactive Mechanics Fellowship Program
Posted by Interactive Mechanics on June 26, 2017
Interactive Mechanics is gearing up for the second year of our fellowship program targeted at representation and inclusion in tech, and applications are open now through July 9!
About the Fellowship Program
The Interactive Mechanics Fellowship Program is a paid, part-time, low-residency program for entry level designers and developers. Now in its second year, this nine-month fellowship aims to build capacity for representation and inclusion in the technology field. Key features include one-on-one mentorship, a stipend, a part time and remote schedule to allow for other commitments, and facilitated conversations on soft skills and workplace culture issues.
The ideal candidate is interested in at least one of our areas of work (higher education, museums, or arts and culture) and has strong beginner or intermediate-level skills in front-end, back-end development, and/or digital design.
Learn about our 2017 fellows and their projects on our website and in this Technically Philly story.
Deadline: July 9 – Apply now!
