Marketing Intern

As our Marketing Intern, you would be responsible for assisting the marketing team with a variety of tasks in the realm of social media marketing, content curation, and data management.

General

  • We are a fun-loving team, and we all like each other a lot. We want you to like us and we want to like you. We’ll be spending a lot of time together, after all.
  • You need a good attitude, you must be kind. Culture is important, as is diversity.
  • Speaking of diversity, we mean it. We know that increasing diversity among our team will lead to better products and better experiences for our customers—coworkers are everyone. We embrace that.
  • And speaking of our customers, we love them and they know it. In return they love us! We know because we’re always meeting new people who reach out because our customers raved about Proximity. We bend over backwards to get them what they need. Sometimes a request doesn’t make sense, but usually, if you dig deep enough you can find a legitimate problem that we are uniquely positioned to solve. We never want to lose that focus.
  • Be honest. Always. Nobody has time for second-guessing.
  • We’re a tech company, so we need you to be computer and internet-savvy and comfortable with learning new software.

Who We Are

Proximity is a young but fast-growing tech company. We make software and hardware that makes managing coworking spaces easy. We began as three coworking spaces in Western Colorado and have grown into a powerful platform of community-minded hardware and software that powers spaces across the world. Our ever-growing Proximity Network of coworking spaces and location-neutral workers has defined the growing coworking industry. We believe that connecting remote workers through physical, local spaces builds community, connection, and collaboration and that these connections are essential to the future of the modern workforce.
