We are on the hunt for a marketing and events intern for the spring semester. Candidates should be very detail-oriented, can take initiative and work independently, and also possess a positive attitude.

  • Social media content creation and calendar organization. We are very active on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and LinkedIn. You will be constantly creating new and unique posts as well as maintaining a well-designed calendar to cycle through content.
  • Assist with the planning logistics for our conferences, meetups, hackathons, and workshops. This will entail researching and securing venues, research and outreach to local fintech communities, order catering, send t-shirts, and handle any last minute/day of issues.
