About the Supervisor:
You supervisor is Kunal Goel a growth Leader at BallotReady.

Location and Modality:
We’re 100% remote, which means we have staff across America. Prior to March 2020, BallotReady was Chicago-based, so a majority of our staff still live and work in the area. We hope to offer at least some opportunity for in-person socializing and/or coworking for interns, but this will depend on staff capacity and the state of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Start and End Date:
Summer internships will take place during the period of June 10 - September 27 with specific dates to be determined by the employer partner and intern during the interview process.

Modality Notes

Our company is 100% remote but there may be opportunities for some in person engagement during conferences. We are flexible on work cadence and will just need to set up a weekly check in at minimum.
