We’re looking for people who like tennis and technology and marketing. Or just one of these. And ping pong.
Our goal There are about 30,000 tennis facilities in the USA and over 30 million people who own a tennis racket. Our goal is to make it easier to book a match, and make tennis part of people’s daily sports and social calendar.
About the project Tennis Round is a match scheduling platform for tennis players and a directory of tennis facilities.People use the service to find tennis players of compatible skill levels and arrange matches.They get tennis invites, exchange messages and introduce other players to each other. So far we’ve registered users from 2,000 cities and mapped the tennis courts in 5,000 cities with GPS accuracy.
Overview: We have an internship position for a new or experienced front end web developer. You’ll be participating in building different features working with a lead engineer and a designer. Depending on current product priorities you could work on customer facing features, or infrastructure related tasks. We work remotely, using Skype and GoToMeeting, but sometimes get together at Sandbox Suites to scope up new features and whiteboard different scenarios. The internship duration is flexible, but we expect you to be able to contribute at least 3 months. Workload is about 20 hours per week.
Why your work will matter: Your contributions will have a direct impact on the way people organize to play a sport.Your work will make it easier for people to discover and arrange where and when to play tennis, and of course, who to play with. You’ll be part of a project that helps people make friends through sports, drive less and be in good shape.
What’s in it for you: You’ll gain exposure to how a new service is shaped, and ideally how to create a new market place and a new category altogether - on demand sports. Something that doesn’t really exist just yet, if we leave out the X-Box and the Wii. You’ll be working closely with a small team of internet technology and marketing professionals with experience in Fortune 500 and startup companies in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, and hopefully benefit from the group discussions and coding with a team.
Compensation: This is an unpaid internship. There is no monetary compensation. This is more of a stepping stone to your first job. A place to build up your resume and have a live, credible project as a reference. Of course, if you are already an experienced developer, but still want to contribute to this project, we’ll be thrilled to have you. We expect candidates to have their own laptop and internet access.
