Content Manager/Copy Editor Internship

| Greater Boulder Area

We’re a rapidly-growing, fast-paced SaaS company based in Boulder, Colorado. Our brand new, modern, open-concept office is located just off 36 and Foothills Parkway and houses some of the smartest and hardest working people not only in the industry but, in the tech space. At our core, we’re a software company, but our people make the difference.

Who we are

We’re a tight-knit group with a “work hard, play hard” mentality. We love dogs (we’re a dog-friendly office!), skiing, hiking, and getting active outside in our amazing surroundings (we’re pretty big on work-life balance).

We love office socializing, sporadic in-depth conversations, and have the utmost respect for one another. We also appreciate a cold beer from our in-office kegs or venturing over to Upslope brewery just down the street.

Today we have over 500 clients worldwide and boast a 97% customer retention rate. With the energy of a startup, but the stability of an established business, we’re shaking up the contact center industry and are looking for smart, hard-working yet fun people to take us to the next level.
