Marketing Intern

Do you want to learn first-hand how a digital marketing operation works at a fast-growing software company? Are you looking for an internship that allows you to directly contribute to the success of a business, rather than spending your time fetching coffee and office supplies?

Nutshell, a leading sales and marketing software platform based in Ann Arbor, is looking for a marketing intern to support our customer acquisition efforts and get our brand message out to the universe. In this role, you would report directly to Nutshell’s VP of Marketing and work alongside our small (but mighty) group of marketing and sales professionals.

About the role

As the intern for Nutshell’s Growth Team, you will get the chance to observe and learn a wide range of tactics that Nutshell uses to position ourselves as a leading CRM and email marketing brand in a highly competitive software landscape. 

Our team will structure and guide your internship so you can gain first-hand experience in digital marketing and contribute to impactful campaigns and efforts.

Who you are

You’re a naturally curious self-starter who relishes in finding the solution on your own or at least trying to. Maybe you have ambitions for a future career in marketing, maybe you just want direct insight into how a successful company operates. Either way, you’re eager to soak up knowledge and you enjoy a good challenge.

You’re reliable and well-organized, and can be trusted to perform accurate online research. You accept constructive feedback…constructively. You’re reasonably tech-savvy, and have some experience with online tools such as Google Docs.


  • Conduct customer research (to help us craft messaging that resonates with our users).
  • Conduct competitor research (to help us smash our rivals).
  • Research, identify, and pursue opportunities for members of Nutshell’s leadership team to appear at conferences, on podcasts, and in digital publications of note.
  • Perform light data analysis. This aspect of your job will be as much about learning as it is about helping us understand the behavior of our audiences as they interact with Nutshell across various platforms. 
  • Ideation and execution of written and video content, to help educate and inspire customers and future customers.
  • Other duties as described. We move pretty fast around here, so who knows what you might get into. All we can promise is that it will be Growth Team related and won’t involve making copies.


  • A general interest in B2B marketing or sales
  • The ability to communicate clearly and concisely
  • That’s pretty much it. Direct experience in data analysis, brand social media, writing, or design, are helpful, but not required. 

What Nutshell can offer you! 

You’ll enjoy a competitive hourly rate, flexibility in hours and work location, a certain degree of autonomy, the occasional free lunch, and a spot right at the center of Ann Arbor’s burgeoning tech scene

To apply, submit your resume (or a link to an up-to-date LinkedIn page) as well as a brief cover letter to We can’t wait to hear from you!
