We value traits like ownership, accountability, sense of humor, a bit of competitiveness, proactivity, and professionalism. We also value collaboration, candor, humility, and coachability. We don’t tolerate jerks, self-promoters or kingdom builders. We’re interested in the best solution, not who gets the credit, and we work together as a team to get there.

You will play an integral part of a dynamic marketing team and get the chance to interact and work with people at every level of the company.
We are small enough that every contribution matters, and the CEO knows everyone’s name, but big enough that what you will work on will potentially impact millions of dollars of revenue. At the end of your internship we expect you will not only capture a resume boost, but actual experience collaborating across marketing disciplines and owning projects end to end.
