Internship Program @ Posse.com
Sydney, New South Wales
Think you have what it takes to be a Posse intern? Then read on!
We are looking for a super keen and enthusiastic intern to help manage the launch of our new retail platform. You will be working closely with our existing client base of fashion stores, hair and beauty salons, gyms, restaurants, cafés, bars and boutique retailers to use our online marketing platform that incentives retailers’ best customers to promote their service.
Posse is a fresh idea and with a big vision. Posse originated in the music industry where it enabled artists to empower fans to sell live music event tickets for them. We are now focusing on the retail industry with an exciting and engaging online customer recommendation and referral platform where friends share their favourite places with each other. It's like nothing you have seen before!
Everyone wins: the retailers find new quality customers, the new customers get a great introductory deal and the existing customers get rewarded for Spreading the Love. We launch our exciting new site in June, 2012. Get excited!
Posse’s vision extends to sports, movies, travel and e commerce… anything someone is passionate about, which might be recommended by a fan to a friend. Social commerce is one of the hottest areas in technology innovation as social media accelerate word of mouth promotions.
Posse is a well funded and connected start up with offices in Surry Hills and is backed by companies such as EMI and some very well known tech entrepreneurs and you will be working alongside a dynamic team who have previously worked at companies like Google, Atlassian, Apple, Habbo and Warner Music.
To be selected for our intern program you should have a passion for shopping and discovering and sharing new retail experiences and be well organised. You will also be into social media and adept and comfortable with new technology. We also love enthusiasm, a can do attitude and new ideas!
