Apply Now to be part of Runa’s 2013 Summer Internship Class

We are looking for passionate and enthusiastic students to join us across the country for the Summer of 2013. Interns gain a unique opportunity to contribute directly to the rapid growth of our beverage company that is creating livelihoods for thousands of farmers in the Amazon.

Program Description:

Interns work directly with our sales and marketing teams to build the Runa brand and educate consumers about guayusa. Main activities include event marketing, guerrilla sampling in urban centers, in store promotional support and demos, and social media promotions.

Interns will learn the ins and outs of the sales tactics and marketing strategies we use to build our brand and grow our organization.

With the fast pace of life in a start-up, interns have the opportunity to interact with many different people and absorb a large amount of practical marketing and sales experience.
