With all the recent buzz surrounding the Green Button initiative, the Biggest Energy Saver, and other interesting developments related to Big Data and customer engagement, it’s an exciting time for the energy industry in general and at Simple Energy in particular! If you’d like to get involved in all this excitement, we’re hiring for a variety of positions, from full-time software developers to internships as part of the Startup Summer program.
Startup Summer is a really cool program that is part of Startup Colorado locally and Startup America overall. The program is designed to get students in Colorado connected with the local entrepreneurs that are building great new companies. Simple Energy is one of the companies involved with the program, and we encourage students interested in entrepreneurship to apply to work with us or another company this summer.
As Brad Feld wrote yesterday on his blog, “Startup Summer is an immersive summer program offering the opportunity to work as a paid intern for a Boulder/Denver startup and attend a variety of evening events, including a weekly seminar series on entrepreneurship. We are looking for students at any four-year college or university in Colorado who are aspiring entrepreneurs and want to participate in a program that could change their lives. If you know a Colorado college student who would want to participate, tell them to apply to Startup Summer.”
“The idea is simple: work as an intern by day for a great startup, then participate in a variety of evening events that will give you great exposure to the basics of entrepreneurship, including substantive classes on issues that entrepreneurs face, as well as various social events. As an added layer of fun and relationship building, we’re expecting Startup Summer interns to live together in CU housing in Boulder.”
In addition to Startup Summer interns, we’re hiring for several full-time positions including software engineers, project managers, and sales support.
