Namma Cycle is looking for interns interested in understanding the nuances of designing and creating public utilities, specifically in the area of Urban Mobility. It is also an opportunity to explore various frameworks such as social enterprise, co-operatives, self-help groups, etc. to build such systems.
Join us on an adventure called Public Bicycle Sharing that was conceptualized more than 3 years ago and launched in August 2012.
What kind of a person?
We are looking for an enthusiastic, cheerful and proactive person to manage the bicycle sharing program at the Indian Institute of Science campus, Bangalore. The program is being implemented by Ride A Cycle Foundation in collaboration with the Centre for Infrastructure, Sustainable Transport and Urban Planning (CiSTUP), IISc.
- Candidates can be from any background – science, arts, engineering, etc.
- A bachelor’s degree is desirable.
- Proficiency in English and Kannada is expected.
- Knowledge of computers and internet is assumed.
Knowing how to ride a bicycle is a must.
What are you expected to do?
Working on a prototype has its share of challenges. We are continuously innovating with technology and processes and our setup is akin to a research and development lab.
You will get into the thick of things managing operations, interacting with stakeholders, managing accounts and handling human resources and training. You will work with the operations team and provide feedback to the program team on day to day operations as well as deployment of new processes and systems.
What can you expect?
If you are thinking about money, we can pay you a stipend to cover your living expenses.
Apart from that, you will get to work in the beautiful, clean and green campus of IISc. IISc is bustling with many activities, talks and conferences throughout the year. Visits by dignitaries are common.
Just outside IISc is Malleshwaram, the cultural hub of Bangalore.
