Outreachy internships

What is Outreachy?

Outreachy is a program that provides internships for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Interns are paid a stipend of $5,500 for a three month internship. The internship is completely remote, and interns come from around the world.

Interns work one-on-one with a mentor from Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) communities. The internship projects range from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.

Interns have $500 travel stipend available to use to attend tech events. Many interns use the travel stipend to network and find a job. Interns often find employment after their internship with Outreachy sponsors or in jobs that use the skills they learned during their internship.

For more information on who is eligible for Outreachy internships, see the eligibility page. A description of the application process can be found on the application instructions page

Outreachy Internships with Jenkins

Jenkins is a Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) community that is offering internship projects through the Outreachy program.

Internships with other FOSS communities can be found on the the current round page.

What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is the leading open source automation server supported by a large and growing community of developers, testers, designers and other people interested in continuous integration, continuous delivery and modern software delivery practices.

Jenkins is the leading open source automation server supported by a large and growing community of developers, testers, designers and other people interested in continuous integration, continuous delivery and modern software delivery practices. Built on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), it provides more than 1,500 plugins that extend Jenkins to automate with practically any technology software delivery teams use.

The Jenkins community advocates the use of Jenkins to the global development community, serving as a central source for tutorials, forums and other helpful resources for Jenkins users of all experience-levels. By recognizing the numerous contributors to the Jenkins project, the Jenkins project creates and fosters a community-powered infrastructure for maintaining and further developing Jenkins. You can follow the Jenkins community on Twitter (@JenkinsCI).

Today Jenkins has evolved to an ecosystem of continuous integration and continuous delivery solutions and projects which include: Cloud Native Jenkins, Jenkins X, Jenkins Evergreen, Jenkins Pipeline and Configuration as Code. 

Open Projects

Mentors for these projects are willing to work with new Outreachy applicants. Please note that as the round goes on, mentors may close their project to new applicants because they are already working with many applicants. Make sure to start your required contribution as soon as possible!

Each project mentor is looking for applicants who have different skills. Sometimes a skill is a hard requirement for an applicant to have. Other times, a mentor might prefer an applicant to have a skill, but they would accept an applicant as an intern who didn't have that skill. Some skills are "nice to have" meaning it would be great if applicants have this skill, but the mentor doesn't have a strong preference.

Each project will require a different level of experience with a particular skill. Experience levels are indicated with numbers:

Mentors are willing to teach this skill to applicants with no experience at all
Applicants should have read about the skill
Applicants should have used this skill in class or personal projects
Applicants should be able to expand on their skills with the help of mentors
Applicants who are experienced in this skill will have the chance to expand it further
