The Opportunity

This internship provides education and hands-on experience with content and social media marketing, as well as exposure to building early-stage startups. 


Your primary responsibility is helping create content, primarily social media posts and advice/how-to articles.


Backstory, launching to the public soon, reinvents our images. By using Backstory, our organized videos and photos, and those shared by our partners, friends and family, become the foundation upon which we can all relive our backstories.


Working at Backstory

Backstory is a small, scrappy start-up founded by proven entrepreneurs who sold their last small, scrappy start-up to a publicly traded company.


  • We believe that life is too short to not love where you work.

  • When all colleagues champion respect, humility and passion, great things happen.

  • We are not a meetings-based company (honestly, we can’t stand most meetings); we’re an actions-based company.

  • We roll up our sleeves, work fast, hit our goals and get back to friends and family.

  • We’ve practiced and advocated for remote work (work from home) since 2010. We firmly believe that amazing experiences and awesome software don't need to be created in an office.


Success at Backstory

  • You pride yourself on your kindness, humility and principles.

  • You self-start, take initiative, stay focused, move fast, and get things done.

  • You're savvy within your department and Backstory at large.

  • You're great at collaborating, but get most of your energy from action, not from interaction.

  • You voice your opinion, seek compromise, and are proud to say, "Thank you. You've changed my opinion."

  • You're self aware and thrive off constructive feedback.

  • You challenge, mentor and learn from your peers.

  • A contagious commitment to Backstory's success.


Benefits

  • Competitive hourly compensation

  • College credit when available

  • Gain an understanding about marketing strategies for early-stage consumer tech companies

  • Get exposure to our product development process (how we build features)

  • Learn from experienced colleagues about launching a career, and succeeding, in tech


What Sets You Apart

  • A commitment of 10 hours per week for a minimum of 4 months

  • Strong writing skills

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Proven track record of completing projects on time

  • An avid user of social media

  • Strong math and analytical abilities - many projects require crunching numbers

  1. A resume
