Internship 2017 101

Fooji is a tech startup that allows brands to engage with their fans in unique ways by combining social media platforms and on-demand services. So far, our biggest hook is that we're the only company that can process orders using emojis (you may recognize us if you’ve seen the Dominos commercial or participated in any of our free food giveaways).

Our company launched as a B2B solution back in January and so far we’ve had some amazing traction. Days after our initial launch, we were interviewed by NY Times, Time Magazine, Good Morning America, Mashable, and more. We also landed a handful of corporate deals with companies like Disney, Sony, Budweiser, and FOX.

Since that initial growth, we’ve been continuing to build out our team and are now looking to expand even more. One area we want to expand is our Public Relations outreach by bringing on a PR superstar.

WHAT YOU’LL DO
Depending on the job, you will do one or several of the following, but you will be doing it with the founders:

  • Build our brand and create engaging content for press releases
  • Build our sales funnels, talk to brands (there may be some awesome travel to LA/NYC involved), and execute deals with some of our biggest clients.
  • Assist industry experts throughout the sales process
  • Work directly with the design and marketing teams to create materials for online promotions
  • Come to Fooji’s Lexington office during the week to hang out and work a few hours.

WHAT YOU’LL NOT DO

  • Work a boring desk job or run to make copies and get coffee.
  • We don’t believe in internships that don’t benefit the intern.
  • We will get you real experience and real career knowledge
  • We will also give you your stats after the internship so you can build them into your resume – this looks good, trust us

Right Now – contact Samantha at Samantha@fooji.com if you are interested.
