Are you a creative, entrepreneurial self-starter and a hard worker? Join a small team of inspired individuals who love what they do and are passionate about building better experiences.
This is a highly-competitive unpaid internship, ideal for a student studying marketing, human-computer interaction, or a related subject area. You will learn real-world marketing research from experts in the field while helping clients get to know their customers better. This will include working hand-in-hand with Sarah Weise, #1 Bestselling Author of InstaBrain: The New Rules for Marketing to Generation Z.
You will support research for our most important clients. They are responsible for everything from drafting research plans to recruiting participants to piloting research studies, synthesizing results, and assisting in creating simple but impactful recommendations. You will also keep up with industry articles, write blog posts, and creating content that empowers our clients to learn more about their customers. You will help develop training materials and help in-person support training and workshops on topics related to research.
While most of our work is remote, we will meet once every couple of weeks in person. We would like to see candidates from the Washington, DC metropolitan area (we meet in Alexandria, VA) and Denver, CO. We will not exclude candidates from other parts of the country, but preference will be given to participants who are local to Northern Virginia and Denver.
