INTERNSHIPS

INTERNSHIP-Header-2014

Forget fetching coffee – our interns hold down the fort. We are nonprofit 2.0 – a lean, mean caffeine-fueled machine on a mission. We’re a startup organization, and as part of the crew you will be joining the ranks at a pivotal time. With your skills and expertise, we’ll fearlessly move forward, seeking to see big things happen in 2014. We believe that with the right people, the right vision, and a little providence we can change the world, helping end the water crisis. And we’re excited for you to join this adventure with us.

MARCOMM MAVEN (Marketing+Communication)

Interns-Need-Help-2MW

We’re building the foundation of Second Mile Water, and as our Marketing and Communications Maven you’ll forge new paths for us. You’ll strengthen our voice, help us build The Mob/our following online, and put into place new methods to the 2MW madness. As one of our first MarComm interns you’ll have the potential to take a lead role, pushing our work forward in a huge way, proving your mettle as a Marketing & Communication Ninja/Ninjess.

We’re looking for the right person who is talented, fearless, and passionate about using their skills for good, joining us in ending the water crisis.

 YOU MUST BE:

  • A strong communicator – articulate, direct, and professional.
  • Organized.
  • A lover of the startup environment, bringing your creativity, ideas and passion to help engage others toward solving the water crisis.
  • Independent and self-motivated. You relish the chance to take ownership of your projects.
  • A quick learner, and a Googling maniac. You plow through roadblocks, finding a solution to a given problem with the swiftness of a an eagle with silver wing tips that can Google at 200Gpm (Googles per minute).
  • A marketing/communication geek. You love the art & science behind successfully engaging people, and perhaps you secretly wish you could meet Seth Godin.

YOU COULD BE:

  • A closet outdoors junky. Much of our work and engaging people to be a part of it is through the outdoor community.
  • Someone who likes babies. Who doesn’t like babies?

RESPONSIBILITIES:

As in any startup, you’ll be wearing a lot of hats, expanding your skill set rapidly. Responsibilities may include:

  • Digital Engagement (general): Creating our 1.0-version master communication plan for how we’ll effectively engage people online & otherwise
  • Digital Engagement (Social Media): Being a conversation catalyst on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, posting & pinning of photos and relevant content, etc
  • Google Analytics & SEO: Learning the ropes of analytics and helping our SEO through creating quality content, linking with others, etc.
  • Organizing: Sorting and meta-tagging photos and video so our visual media catalog is easily searchable
  • Assist with thanking donors and managing our donor database
  • Connecting us with new donors, foundations, and organizations
  • Managing our Zendesk
  • Helping with events

COMMITMENT:

  • Start date is flexible, but ideally the sooner the better.
  • 15-20+ hours per week, flexible work space – sometimes at our shared office in downtown Boulder, sometimes jamming at a coffee shop.

COMPENSATION:

  • At this point, this internship is unpaid, however, fame, glory, academic credit, coffee, and large bags of Sour Patch Kids can all be part of the deal.
  • If, through  applying your talent and hard work, we’re able to meet our financial goals this year, this will become a retroactively paid internship of $3,500.
