humanID – Intern with Harvard-based Cybersecurity Non-profit
Who we are:
humanID is an ambitious open source project, aiming to preserve online privacy, stop fake news and end cyber-bullying.
The team includes several Harvard & MIT graduate students, as well as senior engineers, cyber-security experts and experienced entrepreneurs.
humanID is an anonymous, nonprofit and open-source online identity, replacing Social Sign-Ins (SSOs) such as ‘Login with Facebook’. The login enables complete privacy at full convenience. No password, no data stored. At the same time, we enable communities to block bots and abusive users.
humanID launched in July after 18 months of research and development, and experts from MIT, NATO and Google have confirmed the huge potential in fighting back social media manipulation, fake news and data leaks.
What we’re looking for:
We are a volunteer-driven nonprofit where interns take over real responsibilities and experience a true tech startup, with a strong focus on your individualized learning goals! Our previous interns from Harvard, MIT, Berkeley and Columbia were leading teams, initiatives, sales calls and much more.
All roles will work directly with the founders, 2 recent HBS graduates based in Cambridge. We’re a small team and will ensure that roles and tasks are adjusted to your specific learning objectives.
