Application Process 

When Kiva hires to fill internship roles, we have some positions that require a specific skill set and others that fit into a more general pool. It is the Internship Program's responsibility to match your skills, experience, and interests with Kiva's team and project needs. Please apply to the general Kiva Internship job description unless you have a specific skill set that matches the individual internship roles posted online.


Due to the Internship Program's competitive nature, we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible. We will review your application then match your skills and experiences to a particular departmental need at Kiva. Unfortunately, we will only be able to respond to people we wish to invite to a phone interview because we receive such a large number of applicants. Please note, if you are invited to conduct an in-person interview and are located outside the San Francisco Bay Area, we request to speak with you via Skype. 
How to Apply 

Please have your resume and cover letter ready. (You must submit a cover letter, along with your resume, for consideration). 

Your cover letter should incorporate answers to the following questions:
Why do you want to be a part of Kiva? 
Why does an internship fit into your life at this time? 
How will a Kiva internship support your overall career aspirations?

International Applicants
We highly value an international culture within Kiva's Internship Program and encourage international applicants to apply. With that in mind, Kiva does not provide financial reimbursement or sponsorship for international visas. If you are are a international applicant, we highly encourage you to arange to obtain a visa prior to applying.
