YinzCam is  looking for an entry-level Project Management Intern to manage product releases and deliverables for our portfolio of mobile apps and digital products for 200+ sports properties around the world. This is a 6-month, fully-paid, full-benefits internship position. 

The ideal candidate has a passion for project management and digital platforms, and wants a career at the intersection of those fields. In addition, they must be a self-starter with the ability to figure out the technical details of mobile apps and work at a fast pace to author user stories, technical requirements, acceptance tests, and other product-related documentation. We are a 24/7/365 global sports entity, so a solid understanding and love of sports and digital platforms is highly desired. As is the case in sports, hard work, passion, drive, client focus, and understanding what clients want are the elements that will make for a successful and integral part of our team. 

Why this position? With the pandemic, we know that it has been hard for recent graduates to find jobs in the sports industry. Most job opportunities require a wealth of experience to even apply for them, and, as the saying goes, you have to get experience to get experience. This position is intentionally entry-level and for 6 months (along with the salary and benefits that would go to a full-time hire in that role) to staff out specific digital projects. The goal of providing internship positions (rather than hiring full-time staff) is to provide resume-building opportunities and the necessary experience to those whose careers have been impacted by the pandemic. It also gives you a chance to see if a career in the digital and project-management side of the sports industry is for you. We don't need you to have a ton of experience. All we ask is that you are highly organized, that your work ethic is off the charts, that you can learn fast, that you can juggle multiple deadlines and projects, and that you can deliver. On time, and every single time. If there is a mutual fit, the internship opportunity may turn into a full-time, non-internship job with the company.  Ideally, you have graduated  from school before January 2020, so that we may also consider you for a full-time position after the internship. 

We are looking for someone who...
  • Thinks nothing is impossible
  • Can work at the intensity and pace needed in the sports industry
  • Is ambitious and driven about a career in digital project management in sports
  • Is fearless about tinkering and learning new things on their own, without needing a lot of training

What you will be doing...
  • Ensuring that your assigned product releases get delivered on time 
  • Writing and tracking tasks for designers/developers to complete on a daily basis
  • Using the YinzCam Content Management Systems (CMS) and dashboards to handle client requests 

Be our MVP if you have...
  • Experience with JIRA and Confluence
  • Experience in working with engineers and designers on digital projects
  • Can work on multiple projects with competing deadlines and priorities at the same time
  • Strong work ethic with the ability to get things done and meet deadlines
  • Can thrive in a high energy fast-paced digital environment
  • Degree in business, technical writing, engineering
