ORGANIZATION: Office of Councilmember Greg Tanaka

  • 37 people are interested


One of the best ways to learn the inner workings of government and your community is through a City Council internship program. The office is looking for bright, self-motivated, energetic individuals who are interested in learning the dynamics of working in a legislative office. This is an active role in the political office of an elected Councilmember vs. a more routine internship in the City of Palo Alto.


Among the chief roles of a Councilmember’s office is to keep the local community connected with the legislative work taking place at City Hall. This is accomplished through analysis of data, modeling data, building machine learning models and workflow automation. As an intern you will be at the intersection of politics and technology. The goal is to establish a workable and mutually beneficial relationship between the legislator and the intern.
