What you’ll be working on: 

You’ll be asked to work on, and in some cases own, various technology and innovation scouting projects that are critical to achieving the goals of FireMatter’s international corporate clients. Responsibilities may include: 

  • Research in tech innovation domains (e.g. AR/VR, security, big data, analytics, IoT...)
  • Prospecting and relationship management with emerging technology vendors.
  • Startup/technology/innovation investigation and analysis.
  • Scouting collateral and report development.
  • Event planning, promotion and management.

What we are looking for:

Must-haves

  • Impeccable, crisp writing skills.
  • High sense of accountability i.e. an “owner”.
  • Curiosity for learning how things work.
  • Clear thinking and attention to details.
  • Ability to discover, use and cross-reference complex information.
  • Basic understanding of innovation processes and methodologies.
  • Bachelor-level coursework in business, finance, law, engineering or science. 

Nice-to-haves

  • BA in business or engineering.
  • Fluency in French, German, Spanish, Mandarin or other major languages.
  • Previous work/internship/project experience in venture capital, finance, R&D, sales or business development. 

The fine print:

  • This is a PAID internship. 
  • The minimum internship duration will be 3 months.
  • You need to be able to legally work for a US company.
  • Working remotely is possible, but you’ll be required to be frequently available for meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area.
