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

The ideal candidate has an education in marketing and communications and is interested in working in a creative, agency environment. As a part of the Accounts team, you will gain experience in client communications, project management, the creative process, and how an agency operates. You will attend client meetings, participate in creative brainstorms, perform research, and be asked to apply your natural talents and experience to support projects.

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, well-timed gifs, and a resume boost. You must have at least three years of undergraduate education, a self-driven curiosity to learn, ridiculous attention to detail, and love for organization.


• Ability to work 15 -18 hours per week in our Santa Rosa or Minneapolis studio

• Senior, or Graduate Student status, or equivalent

• 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

Position Details:

This is a temporary, part-time, hourly, in-house position. Pay starts at $15.00 per hour. Position may be eligible for permanent and/or full-time growth opportunities, depending on candidate and company performance. This position is ideal for students currently enrolled and studying areas such as marketing, communications, or business administration.

We will verify and complete documentation if course credit is desired for the internship.
