Summer 2011 MBA Business Development Intern at GroupMe in New York, NY

posted Apr 16, 2011, 7:49 AM by Jessica Bloomgarden
GroupMe is looking for a first year MBA candidate to join our business development team for the summer of 2011. The candidate will work with the co-founder and head of business development to drive in-place initiatives, manage campaigns, and generate new outbound business development.

The primary focus of this role will be driving growth and distribution, and helping the team come up with creative, measurable ways to increase user engagement. This will largely constitute playing a support role within the BD team to close the feedback loop between users and brands—e.g. driving collateral creation, working with agencies to create well scoped out use cases for GroupMe, generating case studies, and conceiving / executing marketing campaigns in new verticals (e.g. college, government, healthcare etc).

The candidate absolutely must have a “get it done” mentality, and will work extraordinarily hard to build out the business.  

  • Extraordinary written and verbal communication skills required
  • Previous work within technology, preferably in social / mobile
  • Immaculate workflow and organizational habits
  • Ability to bring structure to undefined tasks and procedures
  • Outbound client and partner relationship experience
  • Passion for GroupMe
  • Great dress pants, jacket and sense of humor!
To apply, please submit the following:
  • Cover letter describing what you would bring to GroupMe
  • Social media links: blog posts, articles, or published writing samples
  • Resume 
We expect this role to be extremely competitive, and are looking for someone truly exceptional to join the team.  This is a paid summer position.  Apply here:
