Electric Skateboard Start-up looking for some summer interns!!!Bookmark This
Munky INK, llc
1942 W Division St
DescriptionMunkyBoards are the newest recreational and fun way to get around town in a jiff. They are the next big toy that everyone will want when they see one.
Electric skateboards are going to be the next big thing! Everyone will be using one to get around quickly and economically.
Riding a MunkyBoard isn't like skateboarding at all... it’s surfing on the street, with control of your speed and brake. So anyone can do it, trust me. People from age 5 to age 48 have ridden them so far. The boards go from 0-15 mph in seconds, and can be used for about an hour per charge. With only a 3-hour charge you can travel 6-10 miles. It seems too good to be true and they are only getting better during each round of production.
I am an entrepreneur and have my first big start-up happening this summer, MunkyBoards!!
I have a shared workspace set up alongside my home office loft here in Wicker Park.
I am looking to fill these positions with some fun, creative and social peeps to do the following tasks daily:
Video editing, Photoshop or Graphic Design, Social media marketing, Copywriter and Website Developer.
Trust me, this will be the easiest and most fun internship you will ever have. I only wish these kinds of internships were available when I was in college. The second you stop and look at people inviting questions and holding out cards, they will come to you immediately because of the amazement. These are awe-inspiring toys, and people freak out when they see you floating along at 20 mph.
Check out the Facebook page and watch our videos on YouTube @munkyboards
ResponsibilitiesAll positions will need to do this in addition to the skilled tasks you apply for:
- Ride boards daily in different parks and areas of the city and suburbs (weather permitting)
- Take pictures of yourself riding around in different locations, and post to Facebook/Instagram/etc
- Be cool
- Let people try the board for a short distance if they’re interested in buying; after signing waiver
- Have a reliable car to get to and from the locations where you will be riding around handing out cards/flyers
- Show up to the MunkyMeetups we will be holding around the city
- Have fun
- Promote the social network pages to drive traffic to the site and Facebook fan page.
- Ideally, go out riding two times a day by bringing the board to the kiosk at the beach or home to be charged right away. I am certain you will want to go out much more.
RequirementsArtistic, creative, fun, outgoing, techies, fb addicted, gets picture viewing anxiety after a few hours without your phone, posting unnecessary pics of yourself but with a MunkyBoard this time, you get the idea.... More deets:
1. Video editing:
Check the YouTube page to see what we have had done so far. The inspiration for the logo is 16-bit video games.
>> Use an HD Contour GPS Video Camera to take videos (GoPro will be bought soon).
> > This is one internship position where I will need someone with video editing skills. It doesn’t have to be amazing, but a good candidate will have an artistic eye when editing the video clips (30 seconds or less). The intern will also be responsible for editing and adding watermarks and transitions, finding royalty-free music, etc.
2. Photoshop or Graphic Design
Have an artistic eye to put up fun and interesting photos of our interactions with people. Check the Facebook page to see what we have done so far.
>> This is one internship position that will require an intern with some Photoshop experience, or even just some light photo editing skills. Most photos will only require watermarks and light touch-ups.
>> Ideally, you would have a nice camera of your own, but a good smartphone will suffice. The key is knowing how to take a non-blurry picture.
3. Social media:
>> Schedule out the posts to social network profiles for the week to keep a consistent flow of posts, using a post scheduler such as HootSuite. This is easy to learn if you do not know the tools yet.
4. Website Developer:
>> I am using Wordpress/WooCommerce for the site, and it can use some creative things added to its blog and community as we build the content for this summer in Chicago. I will be adding to the site as necessary, using plugins and such to load social media feeds and new content for the community.
>> Website and social media messaging and style will be conveyed through your voice for MunkyBoards. Its demographic is a unique blend of sports/recreation and cool toy, so it’s a broad crowd that is into these. This includes kids to very very very old people!!
