Careers

Position: Community Manager (part-time internship)

We are looking for a talented and driven individual that possesses a combination of interpersonal skills, technical aptitude, and an entrepreneurial mentality to join our team as a Community Manager. Priority will be given to individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit who are self-starters and have experience in digital marketing, customer service, and/or hospitality. You must be a strong writer and have a sense of courtesy and service. You must also have positive attitude and know how to roll your sleeves up and get stuff done.

Wize Monkey is the global leader in coffee leaf innovation that eats, sleeps, and breathes creativity. You will have the unique opportunity to work directly with founders in a fast-growing startup environment with dynamic leadership and support that will help you thrive. It’s not every day that you can work at a company that’s disrupting the two biggest beverage industries in the world simultaneously, let alone defining the culture around this new product. We are highly results-driven and goal-oriented, and will support your personal and professional growth in a flexible and communal work environment. After all, it’s a small team that packs a big punch, and we design our future together! Input equals output and we have fun doing it.

Should you be selected for the shortlist, there will be 1-2hr interview on-site comprised of various tests like problem-solving challenges and short case studies, as well as creative and critical thinking tests. Interviews will be conducted at the Wize Monkey Creative Lab in Kitsilano.
