Marketing Mentorship

This job posting is now closed

Temporary (3 months), Full or Part-time

Osio Labs is an online technology training company. We have several websites that provide online resources for learning a variety of web technologies. Our small team manages tutorial production, runs the websites, and provides customer support. We are looking for someone who wants to learn marketing skills while working fully online. You will work directly with the CEO on marketing planning and tasks during the mentorship, as well as be part of the day-to-day running of a small company. You’ll also experience remote working with a company that has been working this way for over a decade. We have always been fully online and do not have a physical office anywhere. To learn more about mentoring with us, you can read about how mentorships work at Osio Labs.

Marketing at Osio Labs is heavily based on content marketing, across all of our brands. We are currently actively promoting 3 different brands (the main company brand, Osio Labs, and 2 of our products: Drupalize.Me and Hey Node). The bulk of the work will be creating content and working with social media, along with website copy, SEO, and event sponsorships and promotion. You will also be exposed to a variety of metrics and reporting, including but not limited to Google Analytics. Depending on projects on deck at the time of the mentorship and mentee interest, there may also be opportunities for doing market research and customer interviews.

Most of your time—learning and project execution—will be self-directed. You will report directly to the CEO and work with her to define tasks and learning objectives on a weekly basis. The CEO and a secondary mentor will be available to you throughout the week for discussion, resourcing, and review.

Any national holidays in your country of residence that are observed during the internship will be paid days off.
