We're a cool startup with a great culture in the Gastown area of Vancouver, and we're looking to add a Social Media Marketing trainee/intern to our team of exceptional people. We're Ayogo... and we build social games for web and smartphones, both as our own properties and in collaboration with some of the largest and most successful game companies on the planet. One of the interesting areas we work in is "Games for Good" - helping people improve their life through games and play. We were recently named "the Hottest Digital Media Company in Canada" at NEXTMedia.
The name "Ayogo" is a combination of “Ayo” (one of a group of games called “mancala” which originated in West Africa approximately 4,000 years ago and are among the oldest recorded games on Earth), and “Go” the ancient Chinese strategy game (which, being played with black and white pixels, foreshadows modern digital games).
Intern Start Date: February 1st, 2011
Duration: approx. 4 months with possible extension into the summer.
