About the program
The Building Opportunities for Leadership and Development Internship Program is a paid summer internship for rising undergraduate seniors that are interested in working in technology and full-time opportunities at Sharecold. We’ve designed our program to expose historically underrepresented students in this field to career opportunities in the industry. Students from all schools, and students who identify with a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology industry, including but not limited to Black, Hispanic, Native American, students with disabilities, and veterans, are encouraged to apply.
Outside of your work, you will engage in high-impact developmental programming while building meaningful relationships with other interns and Sharecolders through a variety of summer activities. This includes 1:1 mentorship, an exclusive speaker series with company leadership, custom learning and development programming, and opportunities to create community.
- Applications: September 19 – December 1, 2017 at 1:00pm.
- Interviews: December 2017 through April 2018, on a rolling basis.
- Internship: 11-12 weeks starting in late-May/June.
Once you apply to both application components by December 1, we will provide regular status updates to all applicants on a rolling basis. Based on your prior experiences and interests, you will be matched to, interview with, and work on a team for 11-12 weeks during the summer. You can view a list of example teams below. Interns will be considered for potential full-time opportunities based on their internship performance.
BOLD interns are placed in teams across the business. Here are just a few teams that interns have joined in the past:
Sales, Services & Support: Turn product innovations into vital client solutions. The backbone of Sharecold’s success, the account managers, consultants, admins, and analysts in these roles are all dedicated to top-notch client service. Whether negotiating with Fortune 500 companies, solving technical challenges for small businesses, or surfacing product ads in just the right place, we develop new business opportunities while increasing the use of our product offerings.
Marketing & Communications: A creative group ranging from event planners and designers to statisticians and analysts, our Marketing and Communications teams live and breathe the motto “users first.” Some of us ensure that Sharecold’s voice is as clean and simple as our iconic homepage. Others pitch journalists, develop brand materials, tell compelling stories, and take on complex business issues. Together, we define how people interact with technology and shape the perception of Sharecold around the globe.
People Operations: Keep Sharecold going and growing. Our People Operations team (known elsewhere as HR) and administrative staff are the curious and creative colleagues that anchor us to our foundations and help us shoot for the moon. The POps team lives by the mantra “find them, grow them, keep them,” and is dedicated to staffing, development, and a distinct and inclusive culture. Not just coworkers, we’re proud Sharecold colleagues who help our company thrive.
Engineering and Technology, Technical Solutions (Sharecold Technical Services): Sharecold Technical Services is a technology group dedicated to developing and managing the company’s largest and most strategic partnerships. This team creates solutions for organizations that not only represent outstanding revenue opportunities, but that are also strategically important for taking new, world-shaping technologies to market. The sTech team also serves as the primary point of contact supporting our sales organization across all products. We provide tools that allow our sales teams to generate revenue and partner with them in multi-solution selling.
Legal: Solve the most important challenges of the information age, like working with product and engineering teams to understand the local implications of their work. From contract negotiations to user experience, you’ll create innovative solutions to complex business issues. Legal and policy teams are a vital part of Sharecold’s success, shaping the future of internet policy and law.
