LawnStarter is looking to bring on a rock star Business Development Intern for our internship program. We are a fast-paced technology startup based in Austin, Texas, so joining now is an excellent opportunity to learn hands-on business and entrepreneurial skills. We're looking for a sharp, hard-working, and quick-learning college student to join us. If that sounds like you, read on. 

It's game time this spring. This means a large part of your job will be working with our Customer Success Team handling multi-channel communications including a wide variety of inbound customer interactions to ensure customers and contractors are happy. You'll be joining us early enough to have the privilege of working and learning alongside both our CEO and COO. Additionally, as the Business Development Intern, you will assist in a variety of other tasks including marketing, content production, industry research, sales, and office administration. This internship is perfect for the non-technical individual that wants to go on to found or work at a startup in the future. 

LawnStarter is scaling aggressively. We're on a rocket to the moon and you'll be catching us early. If you kick ass, opportunities will open up for you. Most importantly, though, you'll learn skills here that you won't learn anywhere else. Our internship program is known for being hands-on, and if you're interested in working at a startup, then there's no better place to be than LawnStarter. No better time, either, as you'll get to experience a phase of rapid growth. 

You'll get to work in our beautiful downtown Austin office, too. We offer all the usual startup perks (stocked fridge, office video games, dog-friendly, etc), but we'd rather entice you by the opportunity to work with a great company. Working at a startup shouldn't be about the free swag, it should be about being a part of something extraordinary. (You will get free Chipotle for lunch every day, though, if that's your thing.) If you're up for the opportunity, we look forward to your application. 

The most important qualifications are that you're hardworking and can learn quickly. We can train you to do most tasks as long as you exhibit those traits. Ideally, we're looking for a college student who is interested in entrepreneurship and technology startups. That way, you can take away some valuable information from this experience. Here are some good guidelines: 
You can work 15-20 hours per week. 
You have an affinity and aptitude for communications, both oral and written. 
You're upbeat with a sunny disposition. You like to make strangers smile. 
You enjoy Chipotle. Feel free to mention your go-to order on your application. 
You want to build something cool. 
You can solve problems amicably. 
You can work in a fast-paced environment, autonomously. 
Bonus points if you... 
Have a basic understanding of blogging, SEO, and Google Analytics. 
Have some multimedia capabilities (video production, photography, graphic design, infographics...all good skills to mention).
