The development sector often attracts individuals who want to see a change in the world. But what does development actually mean? At the heart of every development professional should be the will to create a world where development is no longer necessary. At Athena, we believe in the value of data science to bring about such a world. We encourage prospective candidates to look at our project portfolio to understand the role of data science in our work. All aspects of your application should demonstrate your passion for the work that we do, with concrete examples showcasing synergies between our work and your impeccable academic and career history. We believe this passion is best demonstrated through a commitment to global development issues, along with on-the-ground experience in a developing country.
I’m new to the development sector – is Athena a good option for me?
