Software engineers are the firepower of the whole project. In teams of 3-5, they write code to build the social impact project and are the ones building the infrastructure and backbone. SWEs have a unique chance to develop project experience (looks great for recruiting), effect real-world change, and learn the best programming practices. Especially in the context of Harvard's more theoretical CS department, joining Tech for Social Good as a SWE involves applying that knowledge into action. Additionally, because Tech for Social Good is a new HCS initiative, SWEs would be influential in shaping the direction of the initiative and its long-term vision.
There are two project types that we'll have for the fall:
|Initial Application||Resume drop + short questions||9/12/2020 11:59PM ET|
|Interviews||Behavioral + technical interviews||9/13/2020 - 9/20/2020|
We encourage anybody interested in software engineering and social impact to apply! You'll gain valuable software engineering skills as well as join a community of other students who are passionate about leveraging tech to do good. Also, it's definitely okay if you don't have experience—we want to empower you to become an incredible SWE!Apply now
