San Francisco seeks innovation fellows

San Francisco has openings in its 2016 Mayor’s Innovation Fellows program for two civic innovators to help create new tools and processes to improve delivery of government services.

The one-year fellowship program offers candidates a chance to work with the mayor, city departments and residents to research, design and prototype digital services, such as transforming paper-based workflows to online or supporting agile, user-centered methodologies in a department.

Applicants should have one to two years of experience in technology and innovation fields, including visual design, software design and product strategy. Preference will be given to applicants who can demonstrate a strong connection and commitment to innovation and technology in the public sector as well as to the city and county of San Francisco.

More information, including the application process, is available here. The application deadline is Feb. 2.
