Are you a current college student interested in web and digital design? Are you looking for a chance to put away the books and get some hands-on experience? CraftJack has a brand new Web Design Intern opportunity that’s just for you!

What is CraftJack, anyway?
CraftJack is changing the way homeowners and home service providers connect and communicate through web-based applications. We build products that solve real problems and focus on the experience of the end user.

CraftJack is not your average startup: We are a fast growing company that was recently acquired by a major internet brand, so this is a great opportunity to get involved at an early stage.

Think of us as a startup without all the risks of working for a startup. That means no late (or missed) paychecks, no corporate atmosphere with strict dress code, no watered down coffee (we have a Keurig), and no stuffy bureaucracy to drown out your ideas. We value every team member, and if we hire you it is because we think you can learn and do big things with us.
