  • You are interested in international development, humanitarian aid, and creating sustainable programming. An internship at Glimmer means you'll be a part of something that helps create change in the world.
  • You're independent and innovative yet roll with the punches. We expect creative thinking and solutions from all Glimmer staff and partners.
  • You are a self-starter who thinks outside the box and provides real-time solutions with independence. Glimmer’s close-knit departments often overlap, so you have the ability to jump right into group projects, and work with a diverse group of colleagues.
  • You stay organized throughout the duration of a project and can juggle multiple projects at a time. You're a firm believer that every detail matters.
  • You get things done. You're a pro at meeting deadlines. You are willing to ask questions when you are unsure or need guidance to get the job done. You communicate early on if there is a problem.
  • You are knowledgeable and experienced. You have the education and work experience to back up your skills as a communicator and data analyst. This position supports both undergraduate and graduate level professionals.
  • Experience with data visualization concepts and software is a plus, but not required.


We're looking for part or full-time interns to support our Austin-based team for Summer 2023. Schedule is flexible, and remote applicants will be considered.
