Roles Within The Community

Base Team

Base Team is the name we give to our core team, or the folks that keep the lights on at Code for Australia. This is the team that finds opportunities and creates programs for people to join. Generally, they look after all things finance, sales, communications, people, impact and fun.


Fellows are the incredible people that join us for our Fellowship programs. Fellows serve as agents for change, helping transform government from the inside out through 6 month projects. Fellows are mission-driven digital professionals with multi-disciplinary experience in software engineering, design, user experience or product management. To find out more about what it takes to be a Fellow, check out our Ambassador Guidebook here.


Associates are basically folks who have "graduated" from a Fellowship. They've wrapped up a project with us and have either gone onto another project, or been extended with the same Government Partner.

Government Hosts

Government Hosts are the very special people who create space for, and work alongside, our Fellowship teams within government.
