Want to work with us? That’s a rhetorical question. Of course, you do. Now, here’s your chance. We’re looking for a paid intern who can commit to roughly 10 hours a week.
Our basic pre-requisites:
– You have to be reliable. Moreover, you need to understand that deadlines are absolutely paramount.
– You have to be able to work independently/without extensive supervision.
– We expect you to give your full effort to assigned projects/tasks.
– MAJOR preference is given to candidates who can meet once a month in the greater Stanford University area (Bay Area).
Here’s our official internship listing:
7 Generation Games, an educational video game startup, is looking for a reliable and motivated intern to work 10 hours per week. This is a PAID internship at $10/hour.
Position would start ASAP. We’re ideally looking for someone to commit through February 2014, but flexibility (longer or shorter term) if the candidate is the right fit.
Intern will work remotely, but is expected participate in biweekly video conference staff meetings and biweekly in-person meetings (in the Stanford area) with co-founder(s).
This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience in a thriving – and rapidly growing –startup. We’re at the launch stage, and we have funding.
While we’re flexible, we’re looking for someone who is able to commit (to a set schedule) and who is willing to work hard. The work you will doing is largely not very glamorous, but you will learn a lot. Also, as we mentioned before, you’ll get paid, so we expect you to treat this experience as a job.
We’re willing to take interns from pretty much any field – but this internship will likely best be a fit for someone who is interested in one of the following areas: education (our games focus on middle school level math), entrepreneurship or marketing. Those skills sets align with the two biggest projects we’re working on in the coming months.
You must have a computer with reliable Internet and Microsoft Office and Firefox installed. As part of responsibilities, intern will write one blog post per week. Experience with social media is a plus, but not a make-or-break.
If you would this internship for credit, we can work with you to set that up as well. (And we’ll still pay you.)
