FAQs

 

Is it a paid internship?

How awkward would it be if we said No? But yes. You’ll be paid a competitive salary. We know it has a bad rep, but we mean “competitive” in a good way.

I don’t think I have enough experience. Will I get in?

You’ll never know until you try. What we can assure you of is that we’ll give every application a fair review.

Why is the internship open to women only?

Women have always been central to the growth and evolution of technology. Yet, recent statistics show that women remain underrepresented in the technology industry. Bummer isn’t it?

This International Women’s Day, themed “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress,” emphasises the urgent need to support and empower women in technology.

Women should be encouraged to pursue paths in building technology solutions, and their innovations should be celebrated and supported. That’s what we’re doing with the Moniepoint Women in Tech Internship.

What is the recruitment process?

The recruitment process involves;

  • General and psychometric assessment.
  • Technical assessment.
  • A behavioural and technical interview with the hiring manager.
  • All interview stages are Virtual. We know this probably sounds like a lot, but we promise our recruiters don’t bite. You’ve got this!

Can I get retained after the internship?

Absolutely. Think of the internship as an exclusive women-only pass to join the team. You’ll be assessed at the end of the internship and offered a full-time position based on your performance.
