Us: A lean-startup-devotee, data-geeky, digital-nomadic, passionate group of city-lovers with a mission to (use data to) make places better and thereby make people happier, healthier, and thrive! More here: stateofplace.co

You: An empathetic, I'll-try-anything-once, consummate-people-lover, hustler-at-heart, customer-focused, independent, eager-to-learn, inbound-marketing-enthusiast, who is looking to get a taste of the startup rollercoaster, willing to roll with the punches in the juggernaut of a space that is B2G/B2G (and Enterprise) sales, ready to assist with managing our lead pipeline, and want to love life while working with a dynamic group of just plain-good people working to make the world (at least slightly) better!

The Skinny: State of Place can be traced back to 2003, when our Founder/CEO, Mariela, accidentally became a data-geek while creating a tool to objectively measure the built environment characteristics that impact the way people feel about their cities. She soon embraced this new-found title, and began her consulting company, realizing that quantifying what made for good urban design - and calculating its tangible value - was actually the key to convincing people to make cities better (and thereby improve people's lives). Fast forward 13 years later, five years after first offering State of Place as a consulting product, we were awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation's Small Business Innovation Research program that funded the MVP (first saleable version) of our software. Three years later, we have worked with nearly 30 customers in the US and Europe and counting and have an exciting (yet somewhat) untamed, ever-growing list of prospects.

Here's where you come in -- the combination of our Founder's internationally renowned reputation and our uber-aggressive inbound campaigns make it relatively easy to attract leads and interest. We have awesome content and need support executing developing and sharing it via email/social media/website campaigns with targeted audiences that will flow into awesome leads to convert into customers. We also need support to develop campaigns that build on our new AI-driven data collection capabilities to scale the business and achieve our vision to become an international standard citymaking tool. Help us raise our profile and accomplish our business goals through content marketing!

What you get: This is an unpaid internship, but there is the opportunity for this to transition into a full-time, paid position depending on achieving revenue targets and/or whether we secure outside funding (which we are currently seeking). Clearly, you'll get a ton of on-the-job training (you'd be mentored by our Founder/CEO), enjoy flexible working hours, and gain invaluable experience working with an innovative, fast-paced startup. We also encourage interns to develop a professional development project that they can use to demonstrate improving a skill set or a deliverable/example of professional growth during the internship.

We successfully completed the Mass Challenge Accelerator program (only 8% out of 1500+ startups were chosen) and the Kickstart Accelerator Smart Cities program in Zurich (where only 2% of applicants were accepted), Katapult Accelerator program (invested in us!), and Joules Accelerator program (supported expanding our North Carolina market)! So you'll also get access to amazing mentors we amassed through these programs and have the opportunity to be part of our ongoing, bootcamp-style deep dive into our marketing and customer acquisition!

Duration:
15-40 hours per week; min. 4 month commitment

Location:
Remote (work anywhere with internet access) but preference for those based in Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Bay Area, Charlotte/Research Triangle, Shanghai, Las Vegas.

We are Moneyballing City-making. Join us in disrupting the urban planning and real estate industries - replacing the top-down, opinion-based, expert-driven approach accessible to a few with a data-driven, evidence-based one, accessible to the many!

We hope you're as stoked as we are to meet you/us! Attach your resume/CV with a cover letter in your Angel List application. If you have any questions, shoot them over to careers@stateofplace.co.

Keep on hustling!
