  • Conduct market research in online, retail, and mobile sectors to understand Swarm’s customer needs and position Swarm to fill niche gaps that can benefit the retailer in ways they might not even know
  • Develop detailed marketing plans incorporating media relations, current events, and press releases
  • Raise awareness of the Swarm brand with the intention of gaining interest from not only retail customers, but also for possible partnerships with POS providers and other mobile-payment services


  • Seek out leads to generate new retail clients through prospecting and sales calls
  • Build a pipeline of contacts to create a robust CRM database
  • Effectively communicate the wide range of benefits our platform can provide retail chains to improve their overall sales revenue, conversion rate, and more efficiently segment their target market

Account Management and Operations

  • Manage Swarm devices from configuration to installation and carefully monitor the install process at client retail locations
  • Active account management to cater to the needs of customers through regular communication to ensure the highest quality customer service
  • Understand Swarm’s capabilities while managing the client’s expectations to facilitate the possibility of value-added propositions customized to each client

Daily Responsibilities and tasks may also include:

  • Maintain, build, and network to improve current sales pipeline databases for partners/clients
  •  Work in development, deployment, and implementation of products (local, regional, and national)
  • Interact with clients regarding collaborative efforts and growth possibilities
  • Gain a deep understanding of Swarm’s products and services in a sales setting
  • Ad Hoc assignments and projects as needed Interns will receive school credit upon completion of the program.

In addition, they will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the future of a growing, fast-paced startup, along with working alongside and learning from some of the top talents in the industry. At the end of the program the most successful interns will be asked to stay on board in a full-time capacity.

This position is ideally suited for someone looking to further develop a successful digital/technology focused career with a company at the leading edge of the technology curve.

Our office culture is important and we are looking not only for the right candidate, but the right fit. A good sense of our office environment involves open collaboration, a work hard, play hard attitude and spunk. We have a quirky daily lunch outing, a gong called the “Wuhan,” and should I mention a basketball hoop?

We're looking for versatile individuals with a desire to make a meaningful difference. If that describes you, then we'd love to learn more. Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to
