Become a Fellow
How It Works
The Code for Australia fellowship is a full-time, paid program for experienced technologists and designers.
Cross-functional teams of three are embedded in local and state governments for 6-12 months to develop digital tools that help deliver key public services to those who need it most.

“Everyone really wants to make a difference so it brings a lot of energy. It’s a great opportunity to share your skills but at the same time, acquire a lot of new skills.”
– Irina Anastasiu, Fellow, Moreton Bay Regional Council
Who are Fellows?
Where do Fellowships happen?
I already have a job - can I be a Fellow?
Some of our Fellows have taken secondment or sabbatical opportunities from organisations with flexible working practices. It’s usually a HR or senior management call. If you need help convincing your boss, let us know. We have lots of resources just for this.
When is the next Fellowship?
Is this a volunteer thing?
Definitely not. Fellowships are a full-time, paid opportunity.
I live overseas - can I be a Fellow?
How do I apply?
As we’ve grown in size, we’ve been overwhelmed by applications of incredible people who want to join us. We’ve currently closed applications while we work through the current applicants, and work to find more opportunities for Fellowships. Stay tuned via our newsletter or by joining us on Slack to find out when we’ll open applications again.
