Fashion e-commerce start-up looking for technology interns - unpaid; equity upside potential


Number of Openings: 2 Paid/Unpaid/Stipend : Unpaid Employment Start Date: Today Employment End Date: TBD

Job Description:

Do you want to work on tough problems in an exciting industry, and help change the world at the same time? If you answered yes to that, keep reading!

Elavate is an early stage company that is looking to revolutionize e-commerce. Our company focuses on marketing emerging brands, and all sales help trigger charity projects. Please see our MVP at for a preview.

There is a lot of exciting, ground floor, and resume-building work to do! We are based on the Spreecommerce technology platform which is open source Ruby on Rails. We are looking for someone who can come in and help us build some innovative features, as well as manage everything from technology perspective.

So, we are looking for two tech rock stars/interns - one that is skilled with Ruby on Rails and can work within Spree, and one that is an UI/UX expert. It is possible that one person may possess both of these skills, and a jack of all trades candidate is welcome.

If successful, our interns have the potential to be in leadership positions at the company (e.g. VP of Technology with equity potential). Paid positions could be a near term reality, as we are currently having discussions with VCs/Angels for seed round funding.


We are open to candidates of all backgrounds that have proven skill sets, and a passion for our mission. Having said that, a background in computer science and graphics design is probably the most appropriate fit. We would ask that you send us a portfolio or links to your recent work along with your resume.

Please send a resume/cover letter/portfolio to:
