iSPIRT works to transform India into a hub for new generation software products, by addressing crucial government policy, creating market catalysts, building societal platforms, and assisting product entrepreneurs evolve into the next role. It’s a think-tank with an emphasis on following up our ideas with great execution. This is where you come in.
Over the past 2 years, we’ve developed the Data Empowerment and Protection Architecture (DEPA) as the final layer of the India Stack. The DEPA empowers users with freedom and choice to actualize their data in a way that benefits them.
This includes a new technology for managing user consent and for authorizing data flows, as well as a new federated architecture for efficiently sharing user data from multiple data sources to multiple destinations (referred to as the digital locker framework). Banks and other big institutions are now beginning to deploy DEPA tools to enable consented data sharing by users. You can deep dive into DEPA here
In alignment with RBI’s NBFC-AA Directive, we wish to develop a reference data architecture for Banks and NBFCs based on DEPA so that they can introduce new products and services to accelerate Financial Inclusion in India.
You will help develop, design and evangelize this new architecture with anyone and everyone in the market. If the job description seems vague, it is because this is uncharted territory and largely, you will decide where the work takes you. What we promise you is a world-class support system and a platform to actualize those ideas.
iSPIRT also has room for a lot of other volunteers with a variety of skillsets. Even if your expertise is not technology, but want to contribute to the mission with your unique skills, do fill the form below.
Our volunteers pay-forward for a variety of reasons. Some do it for iSPIRT’s mission and cause. Others, find self-actualization in building public goods. Yet others do it to be in the company of world-class techies and entrepreneurs. You can learn more about iSPIRT from its Intro Presentation and its 2017 Annual Letter.
We’d be happy to discuss what is in your future, and how volunteering with iSPIRT can get you closer to that goal. Though, we have found that many of our volunteers have gone on to unexpected pathways, as they kept an open mind through the journey.
