Based in New York City, San Francisco, and London, Foursquare is social networking website that uses smartphones to keep a community of users in-touch and up-to-date with their friends. It’s a very popular social media outlet, with over 2.5 billion check-ins since 2009. Currently, 25 million active users use Foursquare to check in nearly 3 million times per day. Each check-in updates friends about people’s locations and activities around the world.
Foursquare is extremely successful and only employs about 100 people to run the entire business. This makes for a close-knit team of social media and software engineering gurus who engage businesses and users through Foursquare.
If you’re into social media or engineering, Foursquare is an ideal place to develop your skills through an internship.
The majority of interns work at either Foursquare’s New York or San Francisco offices, where they are trained and mentored in specific departments. Interns pick an area to specialize in – Business Development, Software Engineering, Platform, Product, or Sales.
Interns work on actual projects that are seen by millions of Foursquare users – a very rewarding experience. Internships last for 12 weeks and interns do full time work with their team members.
Internships are listed amongst Foursquare’s other job listings on their Career Page. Visit the page, scroll through the current openings (which are divided by department).
