Durham/Remote – Plum – Interships: Product Market Research, Marketing Specialist, Financial Modelling

Plum is the simplest way for people to buy and own homes together. Plum helps people explore if co-ownership is right for them, and if so, guides them through a simple process to help them generate the proper legal documentation to protect the interests of each member of the group and the relationships between them. Following purchase, Plum provides easy-to-use tools to help co-owners manage their shared home and resolve issues gracefully.

Plum’s founder, Matt Williamson, is a serial entrepreneur with 20 years of executive level experience in entrepreneurship, including being the CEO and co-founder of Windsor Circle, a predictive marketing company that won Google Demo Day, was featured in the Inc500 fastest growing companies, and raised over $15M in venture capital, and grew to 80 employees before a successful acquisition.

These internships are opportunities to work with a leading entrepreneur at the very beginning of the entrepreneurial journey. You will receive exposure to the early stage formative process, including product market research, product development, demand generation and capitalization strategy. As a pre-product, pre-revenue company, these internships are offered as unpaid, but represent a tremendous opportunity learn from a tenured entrepreneur, to build one’s resume and to contribute meaningfully to Plum’s first steps.

Immediate Internship Opportunities Exist for the Following Capacities:

1) *Product Market Research Internship* – In this role, the successful intern will engage in primary market research in the form of interviews with existing and potential co-homeowners, across multiple segments, and in secondary research in the form of identifying industry statistics, channel partners and competitors. The successful candidate will be insanely curious, a tremendous listener, and a capable conversationalist who can keep interviewees engaged. This intern must also be good with research and documentation, and proficient in synthesizing trends and patterns from the data. The Product Market Research Intern will gain insights into how to perform market research, how to use tools like Lean Canvases and journey maps, and how to successfully and succinctly summarize and present findings. This role is 20-40 hours a week and can be in person or remote, starting immediately.

2) *Marketing Specialist Internship* – This exciting role will create the public persona of Plum. Key activities include writing marketing copy, designing website content, and building a demand generation funnel to capture leads and drive them to commitment. There will be opportunities to write advertising copy as well. The successful applicant will gain exposure to website development tools, email marketing platforms, CRM and automated lifecycle marketing. This candidate will submit writing samples during the interview process to demonstrate proficiency. This role is 20-40 hours per week and can be in person or remote, starting immediately.

3) *Financial Modelling / Pro Forma Internship* – Plum will need a financial model to guide decision making about capitalization and investment, forecast decisions about staffing and costs, and to perform sensitivity analysis on key factors of the business. The successful candidate will have experience with financial modeling and accounting, and will play an active role in early stage capitalization strategy. This candidate will present a financial model and demonstrate the ability to present and modify the model based on questions as part of the interview process. This role is 15-30 hours per week and can be in person or remote, starting immediately.

Remote – E4 Carolinas – Internship

E4 Carolinas Internship

About the project:

In order to assess the adequacy of EV charging infrastructure along hurricane evacuation routes, we will be creating a simplified traffic flow model (of a single route) that we can use to assess the performance of EV charging capacity under varying scenarios. Scenarios will vary by type of evacuation (tiered vs. unplanned), starting state-of-charge of EVs, percent of vehicles that are EVs, spatial distribution of vehicles, and charging capacity at each node. Given our research needs, we will likely use some form of agent-based model, although we have discussed the possibility of other model types as well.

 

About the position:

The position would entail contributing to model design and model parameterization through research, coding, critical feedback, and brainstorming. You would not be expected to be an expert in all of the fields listed below, but having a reasonable grasp on mathematical modeling would likely be important.

 

Recommended knowledge:

  • systems modeling (agent based models, flow models, mathematical programming/optimization, stochastic simulation, etc.)
  • transportation/traffic parameterization (vehicle flow rates, speed-density relationships, # of lanes, etc.)
  • electric vehicle and infrastructure parameterization (EV charger power ratings, vehicle efficiency, battery capacity, etc.)
  • implementing models using code (no need to be proficient in all of these): Excel + VBA, Python, R, JavaScript
    • we will probably set up the architecture in Excel so that it is easier for non-programmers to follow, but we can run the model any number of ways
