Website Interns

Would you like to be a part of the next Facebook, Digg, YouTube or Yelp?
Would you like to work directly with a man who has already founded four
successful businesses? Would you like to be paid in college credit and free
snacks?

We are a stealth web start-up, focused on user-generated content, with
elements of social networking and a whole lot of cutting-edge technology. We
are currently deep in development, and we should be publicly launching early
in 2009. We can tell you more about ourselves, and our business, once you
sign an NDA, but in the meantime, you can check us out at www.ranker.com.

We are currently looking for bright, hard-working interns to help us out
with some research, testing, and general office tasks. If you're willing to
get your hands dirty learning the ins and outs of launching a successful
website, then we encourage you to apply.

Requirements:

Duties will range from answering the phones to helping us pick graphics to
finding and summarizing the latest news on internet business method patents,
and you will be using resources ranging from Facebook to Freebase, so
familiarity with the web is a huge must. You need to be able to sit in front
of a computer for long periods of time, pay attention to the details of your
work and deal with the fact that our CEO will probably be blasting anything
from Thelonious Monk to Guns 'N' Roses depending on the day. You must also
be able to answer phones, take direction, think on your feet, use a
microwave, write a coherent sentence, and defeat an army of the undead using
only your dry humor and the chainsaw attached to your wrist. Okay, we were
kidding about the last part. But, a working knowledge of pop culture is a
huge plus, and the ability to function well in a casual business environment
is definitely a must.

Rewards:

The opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a groundbreaking new
website, and the chance to work directly with a man who knows what he's
doing when it comes to websites. All the college credit your school will
accept. And, of course, the aforementioned snacks.

For more information, please send your resume and contact info to
mollie@ranker.com.
