Join Us in Bali

BAMBOO U - 11 Day Workshop

We’re looking for people like you to join our team, and help spread the uptake of bamboo building around the world.

Orin and I recently sat down to look at what we offer at Bamboo U to refine what our hopes are for people. The main thing that became clear to us is that we want people to build with bamboo, wherever they are. And in-recommitting to that we’ve been getting clear on the ways we can continue to help people do just that. By:

  • Sharing what we know about bamboo through exceptional online and in-person courses.
  • Providing consult on bamboo projects.
  • Connecting you with the right people who can help bring your projects to life.
  • Inviting you to join us in Bali to gain experience and use your time here as a springboard for your own career and work with bamboo.

Today, we’re tackling that last goal & we’d like to Invite You to join us in Bali for a period of 6 months; to learn, to contribute, and to potentially completely change the trajectory of your life and career with bamboo.

We call the opportunity the Student Visitors Program, because we do feel that the opportunity is best suited for students and recent graduates with minimal commitments & a bamboo project or subject in mind that they would like to spend time researching and/or experimenting in.

It's the chance for a current student or a student who recently graduated in architecture, construction, or design to join Bamboo U, learn what we know, gain hands-on experience and contribute to the advancement of bamboo building. We are looking for someone who is determined, dedicated, and serious about the learning opportunities that are being offered.

We are looking for the following skills in the successful applicant:

  • Professionalism and a Strong Work Ethic
  • Problem-Solving
  • Fluent level of both spoken and written English
  • Strong Oral and Written Communication Skills
  • Teamwork and Collaboration
  • Graphic Skills (drawing, photography, graphic design)
  • Creativity
  • Eagerness to Learn
  • Positive Energy

Advantages: 1) the ability to use Adobe Creative Suite, Rhino 3D, AutoCAD, and/or Grasshopper. 2) able to join us in Bali soon ✈️


  • Participation in all the Bamboo U Courses
  • Assistance in Visa Requirements for the position (if required)
  • Accommodation
  • Health insurance
  • Stipend

Apply by sending the following to [email protected]:

  • A 2-3 minute selfie-style video of yourself, sharing your interest in bamboo
  • A short letter of intent
  • A resume & portfolio

DEADLINE: Next Friday, 13 January 2023. (1 week from now!)


Sending all our love from Bali,
