Located in Arizona FORGE at Roy Place:
44 N Stone Ave
Tucson, AZ 85701
The Project Coordinator supports the organization in the execution of not only programs and events but also in the creation and cultivation of a community hub of innovation and entrepreneurship.
In this role you will also be growing towards teaching and executing some of the educational programs for entrepreneurs as you become comfortable and trained with the content and format. Engaging public speaking, social, and networking skills will be critical for success in this role. A passion for entrepreneurship and helping others is a must.
Media & Design Lab Tech
Startup Tucson is looking to hire one or more hourly Media & Design Lab Tech(s) to help facilitate and manage a new Design & Media Lab to be built at the Arizona FORGE at Roy Place/Startup Tucson offices under our TechExcel Program. The Design & Media lab will be used by growth-stage entrepreneurs to develop the eCommerce and product prototyping and design parts of their businesses. This role will serve as the go-to tech support individual(s) for entrepreneurs using the lab. They will work with the TechExcel Program Manager to ensure the companies have the correct training to use the equipment and the Startup Tucson team to help select, purchase and set up the Lab itself in Spring/Summer of 2021. Ideally, Startup Tucson will hire the same person to support both the Design and Media elements of the Lab but may separate the role if needed based on candidates.
We are seeking interns interested in working with startups to develop impactful marketing strategies to help early-stage companies grow.
During this experience, interns will work with startups as their “clients” developing briefs that capture their needs, and work closely with our staff and marketing mentors to develop and execute end to end projects with a variety of startup companies. This is a paid, part-time position.
Computer Science Accelerator Intern
We are seeking interns interested in supporting a Commuter Science Accelerator program launching spring 2021.
During this experience, interns will assist our nationally- recognized instructor (previously a senior developer at Apple, Amazon, and Dreamworks) to run a 14 week computer science programming "bootcamp".
