GitHub | San Francisco, CA
Social Impact Program Coordinator
June 2017 - August 2017
Part 1: I was responsible for developing/deploying a survey and email campaign for GitHub’s nonprofit program participants. In order to achieve this, GitHub’s email database had to be parsed to find accounts that matched a given criteria, which ended up being around 25,000 accounts.
Next, I drafted a survey (in Survey Monkey) and email campaign and templates (in MailChimp). The survey and campaign templates went through a lot of review by the marketing, open source, and social impact teams. Finally, when enough information was collected, I had to parse and interpret it through R/Python. The data science team helped a lot.
Part 2: When the information was parsed, I wrote a a report of the findings. Finally, I had to write documentation on how non-profits can leverage use open-source software and projects for their mission.
Extra: During the internship I worked out of GitHub’s HQ, however, I had to collaborate with people all over the world! Mainly through Slack and Zoom meetings.
