Description

2nd Ground is a coffee upcycling company that upcycles coffee and espresso grounds after they have been brewed, and uses them in our handmade soaps, scrubs, and candles.
We like to think we are the next wave in business, as we try to create a counter economy for the waste that we normally just throw away. Through our innovative ideas and earth focused business ethics, we hope to grow our business starting with the five boroughs of New York City.
Currently, the business is a one man operation. I collect the grounds, then hand make, package, label, and deliver all of the products. This is why I am seeking an intern-to-hire to help with my marketing and social media.

This is by every sense of the word a small business and it’s time to expand my team as I have acquired a few more accounts in the last few weeks. I am also gearing up for the New York Coffee Festival in mid-September where 2nd Ground will be a vendor, and they are expecting over 12,000 people to attend the event. This will be an event with CEOs from all across the coffee world in attendance.

This is an incredible opportunity for anyone because the company is on the verge of a possible giant expansion.
We are looking for candidates that have a true passion for the environment, upcycling, waste reduction, and it helps if you like coffee too (but not necessary)!
This is not your normal internship where you know you will be working for a big company for a long time without any pay. This is a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of what could be a huge success.

Please copy and paste your resume, experience, anything pertinent to the body of the email. No attachments will be opened, however if you wanted to include links to any work you have done, please feel free to do so.
Our ideal candidate is located in the 5 boroughs, more specifically Manhattan and Brooklyn as that is where our accounts currently are.

Below are the links to our website and social media, as well as our company video. Please note that the website is currently under construction.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities would include (but not limited to):

Requirements

The very basic requirement is passion, followed by experience with social media, photo editing, and marketing.
