Surfmark, Inc. is a pre-launch Silicon Valley startup looking for ambitious, outgoing students who are interested in innovative technology to lead the outreach at their universities by designing and executing social media marketing campaigns focused on the student community.
During this internship, you will make meaningful connections on and off campus, as well as with other Campus Ambassadors across the country. Performance-based bonuses and equity compensation will be considered.
Surfmark needs passionate students who want to expand on what they are learning in school, and who want to apply that knowledge in the working world. We are looking for students who can commit to interning during the school year for a minimum of 10 hours per week. College credit is an option.
Surfmark is an idea expression platform that allows you to track and add your ideas to your web browsing and share it in a community setting (or private). Whether you are doing academic research, searching for the perfect career, applying to graduate school, or embarking on the dreaded task of looking for housing on Craigslist, Surfmark captures all of the web pages you have "marked."
As a result, you have a collage of thoughts and ideas with the full content of the web to share with others in the Surfmark community and beyond!
Currently, we are in silent beta mode as we complete the design of our website and platform.
