VILLAGE BOOK BUILDERS INC

About Us

The Story of Village Book Builders starts with the simple love of books. Books encourage us to think critically, build empathy, imagine moonshots and help us build brighter futures together. Unfortunately, not all children have access to quality educational resources and the dearth of books is just the beginning of a vicious cycle.

This is why we created Village Book Builders: A non-profit aiming to help communities re-establish learning cultures through access to safe local libraries, books, technology, and 1:1 student mentorship. Today we call this Hope Through Books .

First runner-up in Stanford Longevity Design Challenge (2020), the Engineering division of Village Book Builders is looking for self-starter interns & volunteers passionate about making a difference by leveraging their core competencies.

About this Position

Village Book Builders builds economically sustainable libraries with digital & physical learning infrastructure in rural communities. It also provides year-round virtual mentorship for kids in these communities. Business use-cases from both these fronts are supported by the ITOps team which includes customizing open-source & proprietary software, remotely managing hundreds of computers, setting up servers & data pipelines, leveraging 3rd party cognitive APIs and building solutions to bridge language barriers and Internet accessibility. We are looking for enthusiastic interns and volunteers to support this team!

Qualifications

  • Ability to commit to the position for a minimum of 3 months, preferably longer
  • Knowledge of server environments and communication protocols
  • Formal or informal learning experience in Engineering, Computer Science or equivalent
  • Understanding of the challenges in implementing IT infrastructure in rural communities in developing countries would be considered an asset
