Intern, Blog & Social Media Content

Fort Collins, CO

Sandbox Solar. With a name like that, you can probably guess that we're not going to be a boring, corporate operation! What's in a name? Well, in all honesty when we were kids, we were the ones wanting to be outside playing in the sandbox instead of watching TV and playing video games. But we also like technology enough that we don't mind borrowing  a term from the world of software, where "sandbox" is an environment in which you can test and try new things. It doesn't hurt that solar panels are made of silicon which is basically sand. We're all of that…not the boring corporate stuff.

We have an opening for an Intern who will help promote the value and brand of Sandbox Solar throughout the community, state, and country through design, marketing, and advertising. Check out and you'll see how seriously we take marketing. You'll find some of our blogs there. And you can find us on Social Media where you'll get an idea of how seriously we take our online presence. The successful Intern candidate will be joining a team that's already doing an excellent job in all of these areas. This is not a role that some interns find themselves in, where they're not paid enough to create what should have already been in place.


This position should build and maintain the company’s online presence and community outreach. Sandbox Solar’s goal is to be nationally recognized for our commitment to our mission, vision, and core values.


● Capture content through video, and photography and edit to match brand standards while focusing on portraying Sandbox Solar’s mission, vision, and values.

● This position will work with the marketing team to create unique content for all outward facing social media including the following requirements:

○ Two blogs per month

○ One Mailchimp newsletter per month

○ 8-10 Posts on social media per month: Facebook, Instagram, Nextdoor, LinkedIn

○ Work with marketing team and website designer to create website content

● Develop presentations, prepare submittals, build reports, marketing materials and more to support the goals of the company and daily operations.
