Overview
Looking for valuable real-world experience in business development and contract negotiations?

Language International is looking for a motivated and talented intern to help us sign partnerships with new schools around the world. Join us at Language International, a team of language and technology enthusiasts working together to build the best language course search site on the internet. Today, we serve over 50,000 students a year and manage Language International sites in thirty different languages.

We do (humbly) think that Language International is a cool place to work. Our team is a diverse mixture in everything from cultural backgrounds and languages spoken to taste in music and clothes. But, there is one thing that binds us all: a drive to excel at what we do. We'll do whatever it takes to deliver the best language course search experience, even if it means staying up to fix a website bug or responding to customers on weekends. We work in an intense, fast-paced environment, relying on every member of the team to carry their share.

Don't worry, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Whether it’s showing off our culinary skills during team cooking events, showcasing our hidden genius in impromptu talent shows over catered lunch, or rehearsing the train dance during our summer party cruise or weekend party in Vermont, we love to have a good time together!

We have developed a passion for our team, product, and customers that is paralleled by none. If you’re excited about helping people learn new languages, want your coworkers to feel like family, and love to be challenged by working alongside the very best, then Language International is the place for you.

Skills
You are perceptive. If you have keen listening skills and a knack for reading between the lines, you'll excel in this role.
You are aggressive. You aim for the moon. You're not afraid of taking things to the edge. You dare take risks for thrills!
You are patiently impatient. Yes, you're impatient for results. But you want to do things right, not just swiftly.
You are tenacious in doing whatever it takes to beat (not just meet) targets, even if it means working on weekends.
You are passionate about language learning.
