Project Description

Supporting the Foreign Service Institute's School of Applied Information Technology, you will serve as a remote IT consultant/eLearning content producer reporting directly to the SAIT Sandbox Program Manager (LinkedIn: Stefano M. Rivolta)

Based in Arlington, VA, the SAIT Sandbox is a research and development space on the FSI campus focused on solving real problems related to collaboration, technical innovation, knowledge management, and data analysis and visualization. Initially a physical space on the FSI campus, the SAIT Sandbox is planning to expand operations in 2018 via cloud-based environments to integrate similar innovation efforts across the Department.

SAIT Sandbox projects range from digital content, space planning and modernization, hardware/software testing, ad hoc training related to educational technology, and experimentation with applications not yet available to the enterprise at-large. The virtual internship will ultimately be tailored to your specific skills.
