Looking for a new job? We got your back. All you have to do is take a shower, comb your hair, inundate yourself with Old Spice (No, Old Spice is not one of our sponsors. Editor’s note: Not yet, anyway), and read below. Before you start sending out those application letters, though, we want to emphisyze sumthing increddebly impoortunt. What’s that? Spelling. Need a refresh? Here’s a little advice from our favorite 102 year old.
VentureVillage is looking for an awesome News Editor
VentureVillage is still on a the lookout for a new member of the team. (Sorry, but we’re incredibly picky.) An absolute natural, you’ll know how to scour the Zeitgeist in order to find the best stories from the best sources out there. We also need you to be able to write clever, original copy with a unique spin that almost always goes viral. This is the job for a die-hard tech and startup fan, who also happens to be a kick-ass journalist with loads of compelling writing experience.
If you’re interested, send a brief email, (something than better than a) CV, links to published material, one news article in Venture Village style (150-200 words) and 3x News feature treatment ideas (these don’t need to be long, just rough outlines of some ideas for cool articles) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let the race begin!

GetYourGuide is looking for a Product & Sales Manager Internship
GetYourGuide.com, the online booking website for tours and activities, and one of the fastest growing startups in travel (from bus sightseeing in London to shark diving in Cape Town) is looking for a smart, forward-thinking problem solver to join their Berlin team. In the paid, three-month internship, you’d have the chance to convince them of a full-time position and you’d also get pizza every Friday.
You’d be in charge of establishing successful relationships with key tour and activity suppliers from around the world via phone and email, supporting and educating suppliers about how to use platform, and attending travel expos and workshops to meet with people active in the tourism industry.
Who do they want? An Internet-savvy and travel enthusiast who’s approachable, confident, and (ideally) well-travelled and experienced in client-interaction such as customer service. If you’re interested, email your CV as well as a letter of motivation (describing your sales personality) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “VV Product Management”.
Amen needs: A kick-ass web engineer
You’ve worked closely with a designer to not only build UI but provide ideas and experiments about what’s possible. You have an unhealthy love for responsive user interfaces, and work hard to help people get as much done as quickly as possible. You’re not precious about dropping into some Ruby on Rails to see how things work. You are open-minded, flexible, down with startup life, excited about fixing problems, and you’re a team player. To apply send a letter or CV along with samples of your work to email@example.com
