Instructional Design Intern

MarginEdge is growing fast and we need help in the form of a talented, analytical, and driven Instructional Design Intern to join our team. We have a staff of over 100 people overseas and are planning to hire another 200 in the next 18 months. We are launching a program for online training of these new employees with a Learning Management System and need someone to help with course design and learning strategy for this program. Your role in the company will be dynamic and can easily turn into a full-time position.

OK, but who is MarginEdge?

We’re a young, fast-growing tech company leading a massive shift in the way restaurants operate their back office and manage the hundreds of food & beverage items they buy every day. We help them eliminate paper, reduce costs, and streamline operations, all while providing advanced analytics on price movement, vendor performance, menu pricing, and food costs. We already have a viable product and over 500 excited (and paying) clients.

How did we get into this, you wonder? Our founders have deep experience in both owning/operating restaurants and in building successful tech companies

What’s it like to work with you guys?

We are a small business that is incredibly dynamic and evolving daily. The office atmosphere is one of collaboration and creativity and independence and fun. If you like bureaucracy, micro-management, and boring meetings, well, you just won’t be happy here. You will be happy here if you want to work somewhere you can make a real impact – on a company, an entire industry, and yourself.
