Marketing Intern (Fall 2022)

Zenblen is looking for a creative, passionate, and entrepreneurial marketing intern to join their team on a part-time basis this Fall 2022.

As a marketing intern, you will collaborate in all stages of their marketing efforts, from social media, to marketing strategy, to data analysis. Furthermore, there will be an opportunity to help shape the pilot launch of their smoothie kiosk, where you will work hand-in-hand with the Zenblen team to bring a brand-new smoothie experience to Chicago!

This is an opportunity to join an early-stage, venture backed startup and have a major impact on the venture. In this close-knit team environment, you will have ownership in valuable workstreams, while still receiving mentorship from our experienced team. Furthermore, this internship will open a vast professional network in the Chicago tech community and provide you with knowledge of startup acumen. Many of our previous interns have since joined other startups or even start their own!

Interested candidates should send a resume and any questions to .tom@zenblen.com
