About the Position

Accelerate Change is seeking trainees for our chatbot building fellowship program using Chatfuel. The purpose of this fellowship is to train new professionals or professionals looking to make a career change to be effective chatbot builders. This program will include training on technical skills specific to chatbot building on Chatfuel as well as soft skills that will set up fellows for success in their careers.

Our goal is to invest in great talent in the progressive movement, and part of that is being fully supportive of our talented fellows in seeking long-term job opportunities. That said, fellows will be held to the same high standards as all staff and the fellowship is contingent on fellows meeting all performance expectations for the duration of their time with Accelerate Change.

Accelerate Change commits to supporting fellows in finding full-time employment at the completion of their training, however participating in and completing this fellowship program is not a guarantee of employment at Accelerate Change after the fellowship ends. 

As an organization that continues to practice our anti-racist values, we will place an emphasis on candidates who can show their experience in working with teams of varying technical experience: this role demands 1. a willingness to “meet others where they are” with their technical experience and 2. an understanding of how power dynamics, race, culture, and gender affect who has historically been included and excluded from technical work and programming.

Here’s what you could expect to do as a Chatfuel Fellow (key responsibilities):

  • Attend scheduled training sessions on both technical and soft skills related to: 

    • (1) Building complex user experiences in Chatfuel and 

    • (2) Growing leadership skills to collaborate with multiple product-driven stakeholders

  • Complete assigned projects independently or within a group

  • Review Chatfuel training materials as directed

  • Complete assigned tasks, from projects to training, in the specified time

  • Complete periodic assessments to evaluate progress through the course

  • After graduating from Chatfuel training, publish two high-impact, civic engagement focused chatbot experiences and supplementary documentation for evaluation 

We’ll also look for the Chatfuel Fellow to:

  • TBD. As part of a rapidly growing organization, you’ll need to embrace change and that your responsibilities will shift over time. Pitching in to help with the needs of your department and the overall Central Team is an important part of your role.

  • Help advance our goal of becoming an anti-racist organization. Within your role, apply equitable work practices, challenge white supremacy, and help make our programs more inclusive. Center our understanding that multiple systems of oppression intersect with racism and be an active part of our values work.

  • Serve as a resource to our networks of partners. Help amplify partner successes, make connections between partners and facilitate learning sharing, and offer your expertise to partners in our networks wherever it makes sense.

  • Take an entrepreneurial approach to their work and learning new skills. In our fast-paced, unstructured environment, we love it when staff first try to figure things out on their own and then ask for help if they’re stuck.

  • Seek out opportunities to deepen their skills on current/emerging platforms and with lean startup methodology. We take an individualized approach to growth where staff have the chance to explore and propose development opportunities that align with their interests and the team’s priorities.


What We’re Looking For

  • Commitment to social change. Accelerate Change is a progressive workplace focused on civic engagement with BIPOC and low-income communities. You have a demonstrated commitment to this work and you’d like to be part of a team of people who do, too.

  • Programming training. We’re looking for someone who has completed a program, certification, boot camp, or similar training on programming, data science, cybersecurity, UI/UX or tech adjacent.

  • A passion for learning. We’re looking for someone who is dedicated to learning and growing their skillset. You embrace training opportunities and push yourself to continue learning even when faced with topics you’re familiar with.

  • A desire to communicate across skill levels. We’re looking for someone who is eager to learn how to (or already can) communicate complex or unfamiliar technical concepts in terms that are accessible to people of various skill levels and backgrounds. You want tech to be something anyone can understand and are open to working with people across the organization and its partners to bridge the communication gap between “tech” and “non-tech” professionals.


  • Compensation will be based on experience and offered to each potential fellow. $46,000 - $56,000 salary range, with exact salary depending on experience and new staff rarely starting at the top of the range. 

  • Flexibility for work and life: Unlike a lot of places, we actually believe that people should only work 40 hours each week, except for occasional sprints that require more time in a week. We also trust everyone to make a schedule that works for them, as long as you’re able to join all necessary meetings. Want to work more one day and less the next? Fine by us. Work better in the middle of the night than during the afternoon? Go for it. Need to shift your hours to be able to pick up your kid from school? All good. 

  • Health care after 3 months, with individual premiums fully covered and cost-share for dependents. Vision and dental plans are available at-cost to the individual. 

  • 15 paid vacation days, 6 paid holidays, 3 paid floating holidays each year and 7.5 paid sick days each year

  • Professional development funds, with renewal of funds each fiscal year

  • Cell phone and internet reimbursement (or co-working reimbursement): We acknowledge that working from home requires using your own internet and phone for work purposes so we offer a set reimbursement amount for cell phone and internet usage. If working home isn’t for you, we also have the option for folks to rent a co-working space and get reimbursed for their monthly costs. 

  • 401(k) plan after one year, with 100% employer match on the first 3% and 50% employer match on the next 2%

Accelerate Change is an equal opportunity employer. We believe that people of color, people from working class backgrounds, women, and LGBTQIA+ people must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
