Ready to get your hands dirty?

Want to be a vital part of real-world advertising campaigns, marketing initiatives, and brand development? Do you have a passion for marketing and advertising, and want to get a taste of agency life?

The Engine is Red, an integrated creative agency, is looking for a creative and dedicated marketing and advertising intern to join our team this summer. You’ll get a chance to work side-by-side with experienced creatives as you help craft brands, launch campaigns, and build interactive web experiences.

The ideal candidate has a background in marketing and communications but is looking to dig deeper to take their creativity to the next level. You will be able to work on the project management, coordination, client communications, research, and development of a wide variety of real-world projects. From brand ideation to advertising campaign development, you will experience first-hand how an up and coming agency creates powerful work from the ground up.

Be prepared to put in at least 15 hours per week on-site, but don't fret: we will compensate you in currency, not just experience, kitten videos, and a resume boost. You must have at least three years of undergraduate education under your belt along with a self-driven curiosity to learn, ridiculous attention to detail, and love for organization.

  • Proven problem-solving and self-management skills
  • Attention to detail and quality of work
  • Interest in learning all things advertising, marketing, and agency life
  • Great attitude, sense of humor, and collaborative spirit
