Digital Marketing Internship

Based in Boston
Posted Jan. 9th, 2018

Background

Action sports can be the most surefire way to get into a state of mindfulness, flow, happiness and community. It’s something that makes you feel truly alive. As such, our mission at WOO Sports is to use technology to drive people off their couches, away from their TV screens and out of their everyday lives into the fascinating world of action sports. We want to turn action sports into a big online game. Your kiteboard, snowboard, skis, skateboard – whatever it is – will become your game controller. As humans we are made to move, we are born to play, live outdoors and experience nature. We play with the elements, challenging ourselves and others. At the end of the day, if we drive more people towards that unique and raw experience, and we can say that we created happier and healthier lives for many of us, then, and only then, will we consider WOO Sports a success.

The Internship

We are looking for someone excited to get into the sports and action sports industry by helping WOO develop marketing materials from idea to execution. Campaigns will be digitally focused through a variety of media channels – web, email, social, press, etc. The majority of our need is with video editing, after effects and graphic design. However we are looking for an individual who can dive in and help join our creative team contributing to all campaigns and providing a fresh outside perspective. You’ll be joining a company that is passionate about what they do every day, whether it’s a new video for our riders, or taking the morning to go snowboarding / skiing.

The internship is part time 2-3 days per week January through March. Work hours and days can be flexible including weekends for the right candidate.
