Design & Web Interns: A&J

Who we are:

We’re an SOM team that’s building a line of stylish, high-quality professional clothing that’s better for the environment. Our first line of products are going to be men’s dress shirts made from 100% organic cotton fabric though we are planning to expand into a number of other products as we grow.

Most people are unaware but the textiles and apparel industry is actually one of the world’s most polluting (in fact, it’s second only to oil and natural gas!). Our goal is to show that it’s possible to build a fun, mission-driven clothing brand that can be part of the solution rather than the problem.

Why interning with us would be fun:

Because we’re a fun team with a great cause! We’re also at an exciting point that would allow meaningful opportunities to contribute to something that’s getting off the ground.

We also both have education backgrounds working with college students and so are interested in making sure that this is a great professional development opportunity – one where our interns develop and finish with real skills that they can use in the future.

Finally, we respect your time – we’ll probably have about 10 hours of work available per week, but that number can change to suit your schedule if we’d like to work with you!

We’re looking for interns to fill two summer roles:

Design / Fashion / Marketing:

We’re looking for someone with an interest in design, marketing and fashion who can help us with our early branding and content marketing efforts. In particular, we’re looking for those with:

  • Strong writing skills (essential)
  • Social media savvy
  • Good eye for design
  • Some photography experience (would be a plus)

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, this would be a great role for someone who believes that brands should stand for more than just moving product but for actually making a difference in the world!

Ecommerce / Web Design:

We’re currently doing due diligence on two ecommerce platforms and once we’ve made a decision, we’ll be rolling out our website early this summer – we’d love to have someone who loves web design and who is interested in building a first-rate ecommerce site.

  • Experience with the basics of HTML/CSS
  • Some understanding of the rest of the web stack as our platform will be built on either php or Ruby (preferred)

This would be a great experience for someone who really wants to develop some ecommerce and web development chops and to be closely involved in a launch.

Lastly…

If you have any questions about these roles don’t hesitate to be in touch! We believe that the best companies start with great teams, so we want folks who are team-oriented, mission-driven, and fun – and we’d be happy to chat more about the project if you are interested!
