2017 Summer internship
Brooklyn, New York
Are you a Marketing or Communications student who just loves the written word? We are looking for a Marketing Intern to join our 10 week internship program in our Brooklyn office! We are looking for someone who is interested in marketing, e-commerce, and is eager to learn, practice, and master the skill of copywriting.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for written communications, consumer psychology, and digital marketing. The candidate would also have a proven track record of completing projects efficiently, be detail-oriented, and possess the ability to think outside-the-box to generate attention-grabbing written concepts while staying true to a brand’s tone and style.
This is a 20 hour/week internship position. In your time with us, you will learn how a marketing agency operates, learn and apply day-to-day skills around supporting teams and projects.

Bobsled is a digital marketing agency which makes Amazon revenue growth simple for consumer brands. We accomplish this through product listing optimization, PPC, brand protection, and operational account management on the Amazon marketplace.
Founded just 2 years ago, Bobsled Marketing now has 15 team members, more than 30 clients and millions of dollars in monthly revenue under management. These clients are established brands which span the gourmet food, electronics, beauty, and home categories - they are successful outside of Amazon and are looking for a trusted partner to take charge of their growth on Amazon.
What people love working about Bobsled is a collegiate work environment, flexibility and balance, and the fact that we’re super organized for such a small company (very important to all the type-A people on the team!).
Our team is mostly remote, with most folks based in the US and Europe. We work together (and with clients) using Slack, the Google Apps suite, Asana, and good old phone calls!
The culture at Bobsled reflects the values that we have as a company
Tell it straight. Good things happen when we are honest.
In it together. Helping out our teammates and clients, positive attitude, being likeable.
Get it done. Personal organization, prioritizing efficiency in our processes and systems, and resourcefulness.
Innovate or die. Having a growth mindset, prioritizing learning and problem solving.
