Student Developer Team
Our student developer team is a change for interested youth to build their technical experience (and their portfolio) alongside industry mentors to work on real-world web development projects for HighTechU and our Community Partners.
This is a primarily remote (online) opportunity, and while it is constantly evolving, requires the following commitment until June 2020:
- 3-5 hours every week spent on development related tasks.
- 1 hour every 1-2 weeks to attend a progress meeting.
- Ability to Ask Questions.
- Ability to engage in self-directed learning.
This is a volunteer position, but may have the potential to lead into some limited paid work experiences.
If you believe that you are able to make that commitment, and want to build experience with HighTechU from the comfort of home, become a member and apply today.
