Remote / Business Internship / Part-Time

Madrona Venture Labs is Madrona Venture Group’s incubation program, partnering with founders as co-builders, advisors, and their first investors. We represent an integral part in Madrona’s continuum of Day One for the long-run commitment to founders. Madrona has a 25 year history of supporting Seattle founders.

At MVL, we hustle and meaningfully guide new founders as they make the leap into startup adventures. Life here is fast-paced, challenging, and a whole lot of fun. As an intern with our team, you’ll get a seat at the table as our team scales out initial ideas and teams on the cutting-edge of technology. This will be a hands-on learning experience with many of the core activities involved with running a startup, including exposure to product sprints, ideation sessions, and business planning. 

Please check out our Manifesto to learn more about MVL. 

The ideal candidate is a strategic thinker, analytical, data-driven and has the ability to influence through respect and trust who can work between 10 and 20 hours weekly on Pacific Standard Time remotely. Ideally, this person can work with our team from January to May, though we can be flexible with the number of weeks worked and accommodate potential academic conflicts. Upon acceptance, you will be paired with a specific partner on the MVL team and will report directly into them.
