The position of intern with GPI IT is an historically varied one. From operating drones on the decks of our ships, to braving the rooftop of the office to track satellites and build solar panels, the ideal candidate should redefine the word “flexible”.

Our desired candidate is able to start a project, fully document and complete the objectives of that project and if necessary pass it on to the project manager or following intern.

The Aim is to heighten technical proficiency of all Greenpeace employees for all the global IT platforms and tools we provide.

King Ho

Support Engineer
IT at Greenpeace isn't your average desktop support job. I have learnt to be extremely flexible with the application of technical knowledge and experience to a variety of, sometimes not so IT-related, tasks. From projection-mapping to solar-array design, the IT team in GPI tries to push the boundaries of a traditional support role to a more pro-active facilitation one.
