Description

If you’re looking to hop on the next step for social media just as it begins, interning with Populus could be a dream come true. This is a rare opportunity to participate in a young, exciting startup in Venice—the SoCal equivalent of the Silicon Valley.

Populus looks to compete with the unfocused, egocentric friend/follower networks that you’re used to. Users follow hashtags instead of people, and the content is solution-oriented rather than self-absorbed. Think of it as a Facebook for patients and caregivers.

Here’s what you’ll do:
Contribute growth to Populus communities
Brainstorm new features to delight our users
Use Twitter and Instagram to drive Populus user growth
Constantly explore and build ways to grow our content
Manage measurement and optimization of our marketing practices
Perform focus groups to gather community sentiment

What you bring:
An intimate knowledge and love of social media. You might even say it’s in your blood.
Creative thinking/brainstorming
Creative writing abilities and decent grammar skills (Do you know the difference between there, they’re, and their? Difference between passive and active voice?)
Ability to digest marketing analytics and insights

What you’ll get:
Exciting & relevant work experience for your communication, business, or marketing degree
A chance to work alongside the CEO and let your voice be heard
Group activities, parties, and outings
Casual dress standards
Flexible work schedule
Top performers will receive the opportunity to stay on for an additional intern time. Exceptional standouts will be offered full-time paid positions, either during or at the completion of their internship.

If you want to get a feel for what this job will be like, watch the Facebook movie again.

Sincerely,

Populus
