Job Description

We’re looking for talented, enthusiastic individuals to collaborate with to grow our company and grow the circular economy. 

Pollima is committed to creating an inclusive company where different perspectives inspire new approaches. As a Public Benefit Corporation, we consider the impact of our decisions on employees, customers, community members, and the environment. 

While everyone on the Pollima team is committed to creating new systems of consumption and production, we come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. The common denominator among us: a shared commitment to achieving impact through groundbreaking work and acting with integrity. Always.

ABOUT POLLIMA

Pollima is a carbon negative furniture company using hemp byproduct as a wood alternative. Pollima was born out of the collective sense of urgency towards a healthy environment.  We can all do something for the good of the planet and it can start with buying products that you know fit your values. The word, Pollima, was created to represent the Pollination of Materials. At Pollima, our mission is to support the circular economy by positioning sustainable materials as the most popular and easiest choices for companies and consumers. By using regional byproducts for new materials and products, we will see systemic environmental impact worldwide. We envision a society where abundance is pervasive and where waste creates more beauty, not less.

 

THE OPPORTUNITY

We are in search of a confident, collaborative, and committed copywriting intern to join our team. As we prepare to launch, we are creating more and more content that shares our start-up story with the world. You will be writing content like blogs and newsletters, releasing that content, and contacting media outlets in our field. We will build relationships with our supporters and create excitement about our products as well as the growth of a circular economy.  This is an opportunity to work on a project that is aligned with your vision for the world and gives you freedom to use your creative juices.

You are dedicated to using your life to create positive change in the world, have a basic understanding of climate change, and follow through with projects until completion. You stay organized and on-time and it’s possible that you have a background in English or writing, or at least a knack for it. If you have experience with social media and/or marketing that’s a plus. 

HOW WE DEFINE SUCCESS

Tasks will include: 

  • Weekly check-ins with CEO
