MailChimp is the world’s largest marketing automation platform. Millions of businesses use MailChimp to design and send a billion emails a day. We empower small businesses with a suite of powerful and easy-to-use email, marketing automation, and analytics tools that integrate with hundreds of popular applications and services.

The MailChimp internship program started in 2013. In the past 4 years, we've had the privilege of bringing in some of the brightest, most talented college students from around the country to spend time with our teams. Our 12 week internship program was designed so that interns can grow their skill set, thrive in the MailChimp community, and do meaningful work. They also have a lot of fun along the way!

Our Research team helps the company understand the people we’re designing for, what motivates them, and where our apps fit into their lifestyles and workflows. We use surveys, interviews, visits, usability tests, competitor analysis, and other methods to learn about people, products, and the marketplace. We use this research to prioritize product decisions, inform business strategy, guide feature design, and influence the customer experience. People at MailChimp ask a lot of questions, and we have answers!

We’re looking for a Research Intern for  Summer 2018. This intern will collaborate with Researchers across our team, and their findings will help inform product development, marketing strategy, and general understanding of MailChimp’s users and competitors.
