Content + Marketing Intern

Remote, United Kingdom

About the Role

To help us with content production and vendor engagement, we’re looking for a graduate or student with an analytical mind, a hands-on attitude, and a knack for details to join us for a 3+ months internship. You NEED to be proactive.

 

You’ll be part of a small startup team and work on data-driven SEO strategy and content marketing initiatives across various industries and Software-as-a-Service categories. You will get the chance to work with partners, users, and colleagues to produce, edit, and manage the content we publish through our software comparison sites.

 

You’ll also be working on platform operations covering the review, onboarding, and publishing of vendor listings, as well as data-driven contact prospecting and outreach projects covering several products and business functions. This will offer the chance to help refine and test email marketing initiatives and will involve handling large datasets and working with a range of online systems (e.g. CRM, Google Sheets, analytics programs, marketing automation systems, etc.).

 

The internship is best suited for well-rounded candidates who don’t mind a challenge and are looking to learn and be part of an environment where responsibilities are shared regardless of the job title. Technical acumen and analytical thinking/writing abilities are key. Experience with Marketing Automation software is great.

What you'll be doing:

  • Help manage the content production pipeline
  • Review content pieces submitted to us
  • Analyze and optimize existing site content
  • Review and approve listing submissions from software vendors
  • Review and approve account applications from software vendors
  • Find prospects and prepare outreach lists
  • Improve and manage outreach email campaigns
  • Help out other team members when needed to make sure the company is running smoothly (e.g. testing new features or supporting customers through our on-site chat)

Must-haves

  • Previous work experience in B2B tech, startups, or demonstrable interest in all things tech
  • A Bachelor’s degree or above (in progress or completed), ideally focused on business administration or humanities
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and good technical acumen
  • Candidates should be based in the United Kingdom or have a contracting business setup
  • Ability to work from a calm environment with a good and stable internet connection

Nice to haves:

  • Experience working with large datasets (Excel, Google Sheets, etc)
  • An understanding of SaaS/business software and marketplaces in general
  • Basic knowledge of SEO and web content production
