About the hiring organization:
Hatch is a Y Combinator backed company that enables anyone to build awesome mobile and web apps – no coding required. Users can pick a template and launch their custom app with just a few clicks— it’s that simple. Right now, we’re not only helping the founder down the street launch their app quickly and affordably, but also fielding some major global contracts, all while working to build a game-changing mobile app builder. Thirteen years ago, a little product called WordPress was released. Today, they power over 25% of the world’s websites. We’re going to do the same for mobile.


Full internship description:

We’re looking for a storyteller-in-residence with an analytical twist— you’ll be charged with weaving the narrative of Hatch’s growth through the creation of playful and provoking content, and then carefully tracking its effectiveness to identify ways to improve. The medium and style of your content will vary from quippy Facebook posts to artsy instas to thoughtful blog posts to totally hilarious snaps. You’ll learn to use analytics tools to analyze message performance, track where people are coming from, identify leaks in our funnel, and understand which customers are most likely to convert. To further jazz up your role and inspire your content/analytics work, you’ll take on small projects for our customers or other Hatch teammates as a kind of entrepreneur-in-residence. Past projects have ranged from creating website copy to developing training curricula to helping with a media pitch. Through these wacky, random, fun customer projects, you’ll have the opportunity to sink your teeth in different industries and learn a ton! You won’t be in it alone, reporting to our Marketing Lead and collaborating with pretty much everyone on our small, cross-functional team. We’re still small with just 7 full-time employees so you’d get to see a little bit of everything (marketing, product, tech, operations, etc) and take on more responsibility depending on interest/ability.Here’s a general breakdown of responsibilities: Write awesome content for our blog (narrative content, interviews, snappy lists, data visualizations, whatever other creative things you come up with). Craft a creative, ambitious editorial calendar with our marketing lead. Develop our social media strategy, and post engaging content to our social channels at least once per week. Respond to any comments or feedback from the growing Hatch community. Follow, source and share relevant content from brand-aligned influencers and news outlets. Schedule, edit and post all blog content. Analyze content performance to figure out what’s resonating and why. Track who is coming to visit our site/blog and how they’re getting there. Identify and execute on ways to delight customers with surprises, shoutouts, and the occasional
