DescriptionFirst of all our fledgling business is called Clique Optics. We are pretty much brand-spankin’ new… we invented our first product 6 months ago and have a patent filed and will be launching in late Fall of this year. We specialize in products for skiers and snowboarders and we have developed some cutting edge technology. I myself have spent 20 years in sales and marketing and 10 years of which were in media/ advertising sales in New York City. As it relates to the category, I have been skiing for 30 years now. The inventor and CEO of Clique, (whose name is Luke), happens to be brilliant and fortunately/ coincidentally my first cousin. He successfully created a million dollar business by the time he reached thirty and he has been an avid snowboarder for the last ten years.
We successfully raised over $100K in capital in our first 2 investor meetings, and we are just getting started. But we have so much to do simultaneously for us to hit our launch date requirements.
That’s namely where you or any other appropriate interns come in. As we are a start-up with our seed money devoted entirely to engineering, patent filing and distribution, we need some seriously creative assistance in designing a sleek and fashionable accessory line for the winter lifestyle industry.
We are looking for a key individual who has a flair for clean design and wants to put their stamp on a growing industry segment. The ideal candidate will have a firm grasp on design from conception and artwork and take it through fulfilling a working prototype. We seek a candidate who is excited about the possibilities of launching a really cool brand, with everything that entails. In fact, I wish an opportunity like this existed when I was in college – it would have been far more exciting, not to mention more applicable to the media field that I inevitably pursued.
If any of this sounds interesting to you, let’s have a dialogue. We are super easy-going and extremely approachable. Collectively we have a bevy of worthwhile work experience that I can transfer if you are coachable.
Let’s chat soon. You can save yourself some time researching Clique as we are not on anyone’s radar but we WILL be in the coming 2 months when we launch our site, which understandably we need done SOON.

- Knowledge of design through the final stages of developing a working prototype.
