That said, we do share core characteristics. Rebooters are:
Entrepreneurial, with a bias toward action. Rebooters work toward the vision of a 21st century social contract with self-starter genes and an innate drive to strategize and do.
Humble, empathetic, and generous. We know what we don’t know, but are also eager to share our expertise. Group comes before self—entitlement and ego are checked at the door.
Open-minded and adaptable. We roll with the punches in different settings and work streams. Rebooters live to learn about new cultures and people, sans stereotypes. Global literacy is a core competency.
Inquiring and political, uncowed but diplomatic. We ask “Why?” to challenge conventional wisdom and power. No answers are taken at face value. We seek to understand and analyze the sociopolitical contexts behind them with respect and diplomacy. We are skeptical optimists at heart.
In addition to the above, Rebooters are narrative-driven, analytical writers and articulate speakers. We adopt a client-services and detail-oriented approach to everything we do.
We are seeking a new team member to join the Reboot programs team in Nigeria. This person will be a key member of our team, helping lead and manage a range of projects that are centered on using civic tech to bring together media, civil society, communities, and government to advance social justice. The portfolio of work will consist primarily of open government programs, focused on utilizing user-centered design and ethnographic research.
We are seeking a consultant to work on a project in Yobe aimed at supporting more accountable delivery of public goods and services for citizens in Nigeria. The consultant will work closely with the Reboot Nigeria team and local partners to gather and analyze ICT and social media research and information related to provide technical support to project stakeholders.
