Bookie Mania Ltd is looking for a passionate, energetic, resourceful and hard-working intern to work with the company's Founder on its exciting new social game, BOOKIE MANIA™. A successful intern will be offered a permanent role in the company and will benefit in line with the company's fortunes.
You will work directly with the Founder as the business readies for its imminent launch. Having led a number of other international gaming businesses, including being CEO of a NASDAQ-listed media and gaming company, the Founder has now devised a fresh new type of social game that will launch on Facebook in the coming weeks before rolling out on other platforms including smart phones and other social communities.
The role will increasingly focus on marketing in the social arenas as the role develops but there will also be data inputting involved. The applicant should feel empowered in that no role should be above them and, most importantly, no task to be beneath them. You will be expected to embrace any part of the business that requires attention and to learn from everything you are exposed to.
The team is small and spread out internationally and you have an opportunity to work closely with a mentor and be part of this business during the formative period as the company starts to take shape. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
There are very few short-cuts to success but there are definitely more enriching paths that will put you in good stead for the future. If you are eager to learn, work hard and have fun doing it, you should consider this role. We do not believe in over-working our people until they are spent forces but applicants that feel that working hours at this stage of their careers should simply between 9 to 5 need not apply.
- The ideal candidate will have: - A good working knowledge of Microsoft Excel; - A familiarity of Facebook and other social networks; - Competent writing skills; and - A passion for marketing. Other factors that will work in your favour include: - An interest in Sports (even the American ones!)
- Music and Movies; - An ability to write in multiple languages; and - A familiarity with playing social games. (Yes
- that's right. We are a gaming company and so playing the game and understanding what really works and what stinks is an important part of life here!) - A familiarity with blogs and blogging.
