Product Merchandising and Account Management Internship
We have an amazing opportunity for a passionate, detail-oriented, and process-driven force-multiplier to join our fast-growing team! We’re looking for someone who works quickly and efficiently, has an eye for detail, isn’t afraid of a challenge, and likes creative problem solving.
The role – broadly speaking – will be to work with the Sustainable Sourcing team to help build out our national network of eco-friendly brands, ensuring that the engine that drives EarthHero’s growth is healthy, reliable, and scalable.
Daily activities include keeping up to date with new product releases from our existing vendors, ensuring new products make it to the site in a timely manner via completing our product upload spreadsheets, ad hoc analysis projects regarding competitive pricing/sales data/SEO performance, and working cross-functionally with members of our marketing team to describe and merchandize our products. Interns will also provide support during “all-hands-on-deck” moments when the team bands together to pack and ship customer orders. This unpaid position is ideal for a student that is looking to acquire experience in merchandising, account management, and sustainable entrepreneurship. Many of our past interns have earned up to 3 credits for their internship at EarthHero!
In order to come alive at work, you must be driven by a passion to create change. If you get excited about bringing earth-saving products to consumers, building an organization aimed at protecting the natural world, and ensuring that all of the nitty gritty details are covered, this role is for you.
We can be flexible with your schedule, but we ask each Intern for a 10 hour/week commitment, and for you to work out of our Gunbarrel, Colorado Office. Internships typically last one semester, or 150 Hours.
