No, not at all! We love CS geeks but in order to solve high impact problems, we seek a mix of skills. We want people from all kinds of backgrounds including sociology, economics, public policy, public health, geography, physics, and chemistry. However, we do want you to have experience with data analysis and a passion for making social impact. That means that applicants should have had some prior experience using a programming language to analyze data (e.g., Python, R).
