We’ve spent the last five years gathering and working with a great team to build the largest independent online publisher of technology content on the web. We’re talking over 30M visitors per month. Now we have our sights on the education category. Think back to your high school days…did any of those career aptitude tests do you any good? Did they tell you that you could either be a baker or astronaut? How many times have you asked the question, “When am I ever going to use this stuff?” brainflash is creating a company focused on the career discovery needs of students ages 15-25.
- This is a start-up moving at start-up speed. You have to be passionate about education. Have to have enthusiasm and a positive attitude in the face of the impossible.
- Excellent communication skills. Have to be able to write/talk to both the Fortune 100 and high school student from across the globe.
- You’re a creative problem solver. The ideal intern will find a way through, around and over seemingly dead ends.
