Marketing and Design Internship

The Role

Imperfect is looking for a marketing/design intern to support our growing marketing team. 

We’re looking for a creative problem solver with a core skill set/interest in marketing and analytics, but who also has a passion for design. Ideally, you have experience developing and executing marketing campaigns, tracking data via analytics, and designing collateral (brochures, posters, handouts, one-pagers, inserts). You’re comfortable working in Excel and Word, but also know enough to be dangerous in Illustrator or InDesign.

You’re curious, motivated, a quick study, and independent. You enjoy trying to understand and communicate with people in a way that moves them to action. You’ve got a great eye for design (even though you might not necessarily call yourself a designer). If this describes you, we’d love to meet you!

This opportunity is for 3-4 months and includes a monthly stipend with potential for full-time hire.
