The mission is to design our website to be as awesome and cutting-edge as our product and to help us establish our high-end brand. We have been maintaining a website (www.thatsridogulous.com) mostly for blogging and social media purposes, but we are looking to make a shift in focus and make the product, and the ability to pre-order it, the center of attention. We are looking for that special person who is a pioneer of web design, understands our value and vision, and will create a website that engages our customers and announces to the world who we are, what we’re doing and why we’re awesome!!!
This internship is 100% virtual. From your bedroom, to the commons to just outside class or in the library… you can work wherever you are and wherever your computer is. We will communicate through Skype, email, text and phone in the truest virtual environment.
