Software Engineer Internship

Game Design Internship (3 months, Tues/Wed and Fridays/9-5))

BACKGROUND

What is CHANGE LAB™?

There's something different going on here. This is not the same old lectures and videos. Nope. We’re talking interactive. We are developing a gamified software classroom for fundraising training- a fun, crazy, engaging experience. Oh, and by the way, fun and crazy is how we all learn best. We have invested the past two years into developing a highly engaging learning experience that works. It is being developed by Brimhall & Associates (www.brimhallassociates.com) a well-established philanthropy consulting firm, located in Los Angeles and Boston, and is designed by senior content experts and a team of animation and game developer interns and a senior game manager.
