Diwala is looking for talented interns in marketing, design and sales, who are passionate about digital solutions with global impact. Diwala is a 2 year old startup building an ecosystem of trust by issuing skill identities to youth and displaced communities. By enabling organisations to safely issue and verify credentials, we challenge the global problem of slow and invalid credentialing, enabling more global opportunities for youth. Since its inception, Diwala has been dedicated to empowering people.

These are the first ever digitally verified certificates backed by decentralised identity and blockchain in Africa.

You will be a part of the development and marketing the Diwala platform and application, focusing on certifying people’s skills.
