Project Details

Description and Impact

This fellowship is a fulltime position in our Medellin office, and has both an operational and a research & analysis component. You'll be working on a mission-critical part of our team, with a balance of your more individual and team projects.

The first week will be dedicated to orientation and training, to be familiarized with MovingWorlds mission and processes. Subsequently, the fellow will engage in operations and interact with social impact organizations around the world to learn more about their needs and identify ways that MovingWorlds can help them accelerate their mission.

In summary, primary tasks and responsibilities include:

  • Work with Social Impact organizations to help them post projects on MovingWorlds and harness the benefits from hosting an Experteer (scoping, reviewing & promoting opportunities)
  • Support Experteer matching by reaching out to specific social impact organizations and partners (using our existing CRM and Admin management tools). In depth profiling through personal intake calls may be part of this
  • Design, run and evaluate special projects, campaigns and tests, that help us scale our business and improve our impact

Experimental, lean design and customer development aimed at scaling our businesses, improving our bottom-line, and evaluation and measurement of results will be integral parts of this approach.


Success will be measured by (among others) the following indicators

  • Number and quality of opportunities (Experteering projects) posted
  • Number of satisfied Organizations returning to post multiple opportunities with us
  • Number of successful matches
  • Number of satisfied Experteers as measured by our Exit Surveys

At the start of the assignment, in coordination with the supervisor, you will develop a work plan with clear deliverables. You'll receive feedback both during and after the project on things like communication, pro-activeness, accuratesse and customer feedback.

Your contact person for reporting and accountability will the CIO (Derk Norde), who’s based in Medellin. However you will be in frequent touch with other team members as well.

HI team, I noticed that this opportunity is already matched but was wondering if you have a similar one coming out soon? Also, what is the minimum duration time of this one? Thanks, Tanya

Hi Tanya, thanks for reaching out. Yes, we actually may have a new position coming up for matchmaking support and partnership development in Medellin, but that would not be before mid-October. Because for this role, there's a clear learning curve, to be most effective the minimum duration should be 4 months. Would that be feasible for you?
