We’re looking to hire an Assistant Product Manager intern in the next few weeks! You’ll work directly with our co-founder and Head of Product Design to help release new features every two weeks to hundreds of thousands of active users. It’s a fast-paced and exciting position, and you’ll be playing a pivotal role here at BrandYourself.
Taking screenshots of services like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and creating step-by-step directions for how to create and fill them out (which are used within our product).
Testing changes we make to the product before we push them to a quarter million users.
Participating in team brainstorming sessions about what to build next.
Looking at product usage stats to make conclusions about user behavior.
Small graphic odds and ends as needed during the product development cycle.
Lots of other stuff that will come up as we release product improvements every two weeks.
Although product management and a tiny bit of graphic design experience is a plus, the most important thing is that you can hit the ground running and learn quickly (see below).
You need to be able to learn quickly. Every two weeks we’ll be working on a brand new project, so you’ll need to be able to dive right in and get up to speed.
You need to be someone who gets things done. The benefit of a startup is that decisions made in the morning can lead to a full implementation later that day. We are agile and fast, and you should be too.
You should to be comfortable using a graphic design program like Adobe Illustrator. Nothing crazy, just the basics. This is highly preferred but not required.
You need excellent written communication skills. You’ll have to be clear and concise in everything that you do. You should also have a keen eye for formatting text to make it easier for people to read – especially on the web.
No minimum education - as long as you love learning and working hard on real tangible projects, that's all that matters.
Although we’re growing quickly, we’re still a bootstrapped startup. So this is unpaid internship. However, the position is really an apprenticeship in product management where you will be relied upon to deliver bi-weekly product releases. Every two weeks you will see the fruit of your labor released to over 200,000 active users. When you leave, you will be prepared to hit the ground running with direct experience delivering product releases on a rapid schedule. That’s better than some of the paid internships I’ve had!
