About Spreedly’s Internship Program
As an intern at Spreedly you will participate in real-world, hands-on projects designed to benefit our customers, our team, and most importantly, you. You’ll end the summer having gained practical experience in overall business, professional skills, and your area of interest, with tangible outcomes to boost your portfolio and resume.
Spreedly will provide supervision and mentoring to ensure that your internship is meaningful. This will include a weekly 1 on 1 with your mentor, cohort meetings with your fellow interns, clear and measurable weekly goals, collaboration and shadowing with other departments, plus all the perks that make our culture special. You’ll enjoy Spreedly-paid team lunches every Tuesday and Thursday, office snacks, a loaner laptop with access to any needed software, participation in a community coworking day to allow for additional networking, and inclusion in our Slack channels for business and fun.
Our internships are all paid ($15/hour). You can negotiate the number of hours you work with your supervisor, but you should plan for a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 30 hours per week. Our team works in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays and remotely the rest of the week. We’d like you on-site for the majority of your time, especially 9 to 5(ish) Tuesdays and Thursdays (we don’t want you to miss lunch!). The rest of your in-office hours can be flexible in terms of times and days. The program will run from June 1 to August 1.
