LawnStarter, Sales Internship, Application Deadline, BTT Gateway Job ID 11860

Mon, June 20, 2016


LawnStarter is looking for a few rock star Sales Interns for our internship program that starts Summer 2016. 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 sharp, hard-working, quick-learning college students (and recent grads) to join us. If that sounds like you, read on. 

It's game time this summer. This means a large part of your job will be working with our Growth Management Team handling multichannel communications, including a wide variety of inbound customer interactions to ensure our customers have an amazing experience with LawnStarter. You'll be joining us early enough to have the privilege of working and learning alongside tech industry leaders in a rapidly growing company. 

As an Intern, your primary responsibility will be engaging with potential clients and using your superior communication skills to explain how awesome LawnStarter is. We work primarily with customers who reach out to us for service, which means no cold calls! This internship is perfect for the non-tech person that wants to go on to launch or work at a startup. 


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's interested in entrepreneurship and technology startups. That way, you can take away some valuable information from this experience. Here are some good guidelines: 
You're enrolled as an undergraduate student or you're a recent college grad. 
You can work at least 15-25 hours per week (part-time), including evenings and/or weekends. 
You have an affinity and aptitude for communications, both oral and written. 
You're upbeat with a great 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. 


LawnStarter is scaling aggressively. We're on a rocket to the moon, and you'll be hopping on the rocket 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 cool 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 plenty of free Chipotle, though, if that's your thing.) If you're up for the opportunity, we look forward to reading your application.
