Looking for impactful summer opportunities? Interested in leveraging design
and technology for social good? Excited about working with communities
At Endless Computers <https://endlessm.com/>, we have an ambitious goal: to
make computing accessible for the billions in the developing world still
outside of its reach. This summer we are launching the first year of the
Endless Fellowships program, a chance to spend the summer in Guatemala
designing and building applications with our users.
Endless Fellowship Dinner

We'll have free Chipotle & the chance to hang out with engineers and
designers from Endless who will chat about their experience, the
fellowship, and other awesome opportunities.
The Endless Fellowship Program
Location: Antigua, Guatemala for the Fellowship and San Francisco, CA
before and after Guatemala.
Dates: June 13th - August 12th
Application Deadline: April 8th, applicants considered on a rolling
deadline and preference given to those who apply early
How to apply: We are interested in strong applicants in the field of
engineering and design. Check out how to apply for engineering here
Billions of people are about to get access to technology for the first
time. Yet so few are building tools to make their lives better. The Endless
Fellowship Program is focused on doing just that. This summer, an inaugural
group of Endless Fellows will be chosen to live in Antigua, Guatemala to
research and develop applications for our core product: an operating system
for the developing world.
If selected, you will spend the summer living in a house with your peers
while building apps with the support of Endless engineers, designers, and
our ground team. You will have an opportunity to experience how we work
with our users to create products that have meaningful impact on their
lives. On the weekends, we will explore the incredible and diverse country
while spending time with our users (and practicing your Spanish!).
At the end of the program, you will leave with a rich portfolio of skills,
a deep connection with our users, new friendships, and an understanding of
how technology can address global issues. Back in San Francisco, Fellows
will present their project to the entire company.
Endless <https://endlessm.com/> was founded with a single mission: to make
computing universally accessible by solving the barriers of cost,
connectivity, and ease of use. Our flagship product is a fully functional
desktop computer and operating system designed for emerging markets. Endless
is built on Linux and is intuitive for users who have limited experience
