Marketing Officer

Job description

This is a rare opportunity - the type of internship that just doesn’t come round very often. If you’re looking to gain experience in the world of international business, innovation and technology, then this is for you.

Based in our high-tech offices in the beautiful Colombian city of Medellín and fuelled by the locally grown coffee, you will have the opportunity to work on a new business concept developed in the innovation unit here at Virtuagym.

Your main goal as a Marketing and Sales Intern will be to support the project management, communications and sales of a new business operation and brand. You’ll be challenged in a fast moving environment, with many diverse duties. You’ll be a respected member of the team, and have the opportunity to deliver your own projects. In addition, you’ll work closely with the marketing, sales, support and development departments, getting the chance to develop a range of professional skills and expertise. So if you’re confident, ambitious and driven by results, then we’d love to have you on board.

Virtuagym is a fast growing technology company which provides innovative business software for gyms, personal trainers, physiotherapists and corporate health services - it is this final segment that you’ll be focused on, the rapidly growing corporate health and wellness sectors. With tools for client coaching, management and integrated mobile apps, we’re a leading player in the industry and we’ve got big plans ahead. Backed by investors SanomaVentures and Saffelberg Investments, our goal is to become a worldwide software powerhouse. To help make that happen, we’re looking for a Marketing Officer, or more specifically, you, to join our team.


Your Skills:

  • You are highly motivated and enthusiastic, with great initiative and work ethic
  • You are analytical with a good eye for detail and with experience of undertaking professional research
  • You are creative, collaborative and full of ideas
  • You have strong spoken and written skills in English (required) - Spanish, Dutch or another language is an additional asset (desired)
  • You have good writing skills and understand different audiences and marketing channels
  • You are educated to degree level
  • You are available for a full-time internship of at least 5 months
  • You are excited to live and learn in Medellin, Colombia
  • An interest in health, fitness, nutrition, productivity and/or work-placed wellness are additional assets

What We Bring to the Table

A challenging full-­time internship (40 hours) within a young, fast­-growing and international company operating from a beautiful, international office in the Medellín, Colombia. Despite our recent growth we still have (and cherish!) our “non­-corporate start-up culture”, where good fun, great atmosphere and building cool new stuff is what it’s all about. You’ll get the chance to build the most awesome things using the latest technologies, which are used by millions of people worldwide, thus helping us innovate the global wellness industry. You’ll get as much responsibility as you’re willing to take on, allowing you to grow as a professional within our company and gain valuable experience in your field.
