Symbaloo is looking for an Intern that doesn’t want to be an Intern
We don’t think in the terms Intern, junior or senior. We think in projects and responsibility. You will work in a small team but a fast paced environment. Everything is project based and the entire team contributes. That comes with a lot of freedom but also a lot of responsibility. Are you ready to take on some seriously fun work instead of just collecting a paycheck? Are you ready to make the most out of this opportunity and create a full time job for yourself? If the answer is Yes, please apply.
Personality over Skills
At Symbaloo, having the right people on board is critical. You have to be a team player that’s not afraid of taking charge and at the same time, an ambitious self starter that gets stuff done by yourself. We can help develop the skills you don’t have, but we can’t change your attitude. Are you motivated, committed to your work and want to grow within a startup environment? If the answer is Yes, please apply.
Work hard, play hard
Yes we have a foosball table and a pinball machine in our office. You work in a flexible setting and don’t have to wear a suit and tie. But we want you to experience the real fun doing your work. The challenges change weekly. One week you work on an email campaign, next week you plan for a Karaoke Party for educators. Are you the kind of person that is up for the challenge? If the answer is Yes, please apply.
Besides a solid foosball game, what else are we looking for? Our ideal candidate answered all three questions above with Yes, is tech & online marketing savvy, an avid user of social networking tools, understand the importance of new media and knows a thing or two about project management. Some of the obvious attributes we need you to have: ambitious, reliable, organized, detail oriented, quick learner.
Additional skills/expertise we are looking for. The more you can check off, the better. But none of them are a must: Content Creation, Blogging, Project Management, SEO/SEM, Affiliate Marketing, Analytics, Social Media Strategy, PR, Event Planning, Photoshop, Customer Service, HTML, WordPress, Video Editing, Email Marketing, Sales, Communications.

Be yourself. To see if you are still reading and serious about your application, here is a tip: Applications that include a webmix will be highly considered! What is a webmix you wonder?
