Internship Summer Internship 2022: Business Roles

Quorum – Posted by jeanne Washington, District of Columbia, United States

Job Description

Politics is bigger than just campaigns or politicians; it is how we as a society figure out how we’re going to work together. Politics is a non-profit mobilizing its members to support a cause; it is employees receiving an email from their CEO explaining the impact the company is having on an industry; it is informed citizens knowing everything their representatives are saying and not saying. Politics is the laws, norms, and rule-making system that impacts everyone’s lives every day.

At Quorum, we believe that change is best achieved when all parties have access to the information, technology, and relationships they need to make a difference. The Change Politics Internship is a 12-week, paid summer internship program aimed at helping students from underrepresented groups gain exposure to politics and the technology sector. Our interns will work within one of our five departments—business development, customer success, marketing and communications, software development, or operations. Each intern will be asked to lead an intern project. This internship program is demanding, full time, and requires an interest in technology and/or public affairs

The program is open to all sophomores, juniors, and seniors with a 3.0 GPA or higher. We strongly encourage applications from individuals who identify as a member of a group that is historically underrepresented in the technology sector, including but not limited to women/trans*/non-binary individuals, veterans, ethnic or religious minorities, first generation college students, members of the LGBTQ community, and/or individuals with disabilities.

Consistently named one of the top D.C. start-ups to watch since 2016, Quorum is software built for public affairs. Thousands of public affairs professionals use Quorum for their work in Congress, all 50 state legislatures, major U.S. cities, and the European Union. Quorum is 100% bootstrapped—meaning we have never raised venture capital funding—and works with organizations like Coca-Cola, the United Nations Foundation, Sierra Club, General Motors, and Lyft.

At Quorum, we move quickly. We immerse interns in our culture and operational efforts from Day One and provide an experience that truly has an impact and importance. Moreover, we have social events for the 2022 intern cohort, like museum tours and volunteering, and diverse development opportunities to learn more about business departments and Quorum as a company.
