About the Work
This position is about using technology to help fundamentally change the way international
development projects are managed.
The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) was founded in 2011, and has had incredible success
in standardizing publication of information on international development activities. Almost all of the
world’s major funders now publish data on international development spending to a central registry in a
common format, permitting easy access, analysis, and aggregation of a wealth of important data on
projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean. These data are invaluable for
citizens and governments in developing countries who want to understand the real patterns of
development spending in their countries, and who want to analyze development projects which are
affecting their lives.
However, the gap between data publication and data use is still wide. The IATI data model is complex,
the registry is still evolving, and there is a massive need for skilled hackers to sift through the data and
develop strategies for parsing, quality assurance, and aggregation. Many of DG’s products are starting to
use IATI data at scale, and we are taking a leading role in the community effort to help IATI live up to its
You are smart and tech-savvy, with a background in data analysis or web development (or both!), and
you want to use your skills to help change the world. We have no specific educational requirements -
what we require is that you can hit the ground running on day one with building cool products for
parsing XML, analyzing IATI data, and extracting actionable insights. (And yes, it’s totally fine if your first
step is “convert the XML to JSON”).
About the Experience
This is a paid internship, based at the amazing and brand-new OpenGov Hub office at McPherson
Square. You will spend the summer in an open concept environment, hooked up to fast wifi and
unlimited coffee, surrounded by http://opengovhub.org/who-we-are/ ">cool organizations, in the heart of a a great neighborhood. You will get the chance to learn from the AidData team about international development, you will push the
organization’s thinking around IATI, and you will be supported by a team who can quickly get you up-to-speed on the domain-specific aspects of the IATI data model. Your insights will not sit on a shelf, but rather will be integrated into core products and production code bases. And who knows - if things go well there is a very good chance that you will be doing this integration yourself before the summer is out.
