At mPower, we constantly look for fresh talent to fundamentally challenge our worldviews and infuse our organization with fresh perspectives and knowledge. For this reason, we offer a broad-based and highly flexible fellowship that lets you choose from various options, including the length, depth and job role of your fellowship. We tailor the experience to suit your unique skills, experience, knowledge and interests. A good fit motivates our fellows to do their best, and in turn brings out the best in us.

The mPower Fellowship has three length options:

  • 3 Month Fellowship (e.g. A Summer Engagement/Internship)
  • 6 Month Fellowship (e.g. A Sabbatical or Exploratory Engagement)
  • 1 Year Fellowship (e.g. A Break Year before or after Graduate School)

We believe in meritocracy, and successful fellows in the past have even become shareholder partners of the company.

If you are a maverick who does not want to be boxed in a role or constrained from exploring uncharted territory, this option is for you. We will even incubate exceptional X-Fellows to create new ventures at the edges of our core operations, as resident intrapreneurs. We would rather disrupt ourselves than be disrupted by others! This is a full-time position, but location can be quite flexible

  • if you own a garage in Silicon Valley, you might have an unfair advantage!

Program Design Fellowship

If you are passionate about excellence in program design, and have a creative bone, this is for you. We will train you in ‘Human Centered Design’, which we extensively use to design and iterate on our solutions, and leverage our partnership with for the fellowship. You will travel extensively to our rural project sites, interact with beneficiaries, explore the challenges and opportunities, and design new ICT-based solutions and services. You must have appetite for lots of late night brainstorms and insightful ‘deep dives’ in remote parts of Bangladesh. This is a full-time position, and requires you to be on-site in Dhaka, Bangladesh, with extensive travel throughout Bangladesh (or other countries for international projects).

Communications & Media Fellowship

If you are a photographer, blogger, writer, videographer, animator or journalist interested in learning and spreading the word about cutting-edge applications of ICT in the development sector, this fellowship is for you. We will give you full freedom to explore and understand our various projects, including field immersions, and to decide which stories you would like to share with the world. You will write for our own blog or newsletters, publish stories in renowned blogs or magazines, create short videos or photo stories (sample video | sample photo-story), or if you are ambitious, even help us shape our brand positioning or social media strategy. This can be a full-time or a part-time position, but you should plan to spend significant time on-the-ground in Bangladesh for maximum impact.

Research Fellowship

As a social enterprise, we are all about the impact of our work. If you are too, and have a curious academic within you, you might enjoy this role. You will work with our Research team to explore the impact of our projects – designing evaluations, validating hypotheses, collecting data and stories, and writing anything between impact briefs and teaching cases to academic papers for journals for publication. You could also choose general interest topics that you want to explore – given the wide diversity of our projects, there is no dearth of interesting topics to explore and write about. This may be a part time or full time position (20 to 60 hours a week – pick your style!), and we will be flexible about your physical location.

Technology Fellowship

If you are a coding buff, and love the divine feeling of creating software that improves people’s lives profoundly, this is for you. mPower works on a wide range of solutions for the base of the pyramid ensuring immunization for rural children, assessing risk of pregnant women, helping farmers improve crop harvests, and alleviating extreme poverty. We can promise you plenty of worthy causes to code for, but no promises on work hours! This could be part-time or full-time, and you could work on this from your private dungeon or the International Space Station. However, if you would like to also see first-hand the impact of your code, you might want to plan for a visit.

Data Science Fellowship

If data whispers secrets to you while everybody else blankly stares at it, we need you in this position. We have vast troves of unparalleled data (example here) about people at the base of the pyramid, and are keen to model these data for new insights and predictions, but often don’t have the necessary resources or skills. We will open up our treasures to you – just tell us those whispered secrets! Work station and hours are flexible. In fact, you could do it while maintaining your day job at Google!

We expect fellows with:

  • Some work or voluntary experience that demonstrates commitment to international development.
  • A Bachelors or Masters degree. Current students are also welcome to apply.
  • Ability to work and collaborate in English.
  • Pro-activeness and discipline – i.e. the ability to produce outputs independently in a highly fluid environment without being micro-managed.
  • Creativity to offer new and out-of-the-box solutions to problems
  • Comfort with ambiguity

At the end of the fellowship, you may apply for full time positions (such as our talent fast track – the mPower Young Professionals Program), and will have an advantage over other applicants. We believe in meritocracy, and successful fellows in the past have even become shareholder partners of the company.
