Description

RapidSOS, a leading developer of mobile-enabled emergency response applications and software, is looking to hire a web design intern. The intern will work closely with the RapidSOS founders to assist with the development of the Company’s government relations strategy. The intern will have the opportunity to work on the ground level of a rapidly growing tech start-up. The intern will collaborate closely with the Company’s co-founders, who have collectively helped commercialize over 50 start-up companies in the past.

Responsibilities

• Intern will assist RapidSOS in building out the Company’s government relations efforts
• Intern will research and identify partner institutions in municipal, state, and federal government and assist the RapidSOS team in reaching out to these organizations
• Intern will research and identify grant opportunities and work with RapidSOS team to apply for relevant opportunity
• Unpaid internship (RapidSOS team is happy to assist students in securing course credit at their university if available)
• 5-week internship with opportunity for extension (commences as soon as feasible for selected candidate)
• 10-hour per week commitment with potential for additional work depending on the intern’s availability
• Unfortunately RapidSOS is not able to offer office space at this time for the intern so work will be “from home” with regular conference calls to review work, discuss strategy, and collaborate on projects

Requirements

What we require:

• Strong communication skills
• Grant-writing or government relations experience is preferred, as is professional experience in a public agency, corporation, or non-profit
