Digital Marketer Intern

About Clockk

Clockk is a Software-as-a-Service startup located in Halifax NS. Our product is an automated time tracking and recording tool, used by professional services companies including digital marketers, graphic designers, and software developers.

Position Overview

As Clockk’s Digital Marketer Intern you’ll be an essential member of the team, responsible for developing and executing customer acquisition initiatives including content strategy, email marketing, and influencer marketing efforts. Together with the CEO, you will have the freedom - and the expectation - to explore new channels and tactics to push Clockk’s growth initiatives to new levels.

Through Clockk and our membership as a resident company at Volta Labs, Atlantic Canada’s premier startup incubator, you will have access to programming tailored to workers at high-growth technology start-ups. Our own network will also give you access to experienced mentors in fields such as social media influencing, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Search Engine Marketing (SEM), and other forms of demand generation. Regular events at Volta will give you many opportunities to learn networking. You will have the ability to discover and explore your passion in marketing and the digital economy.

You will gain financial literacy both by learning how our customers — professional services companies — deliver value and bill for their work, as well as through Clockk’s financial transparency.

Although you will be working as part of a team, you will have significant autonomy to set your own goals and time management plan. As a small startup, every employee is expected to be self-motivated and able to persevere toward their goals.

This position is in Halifax NS and will extend from September 27, 2021 to March 25, 2022.
