Welcome to Propel! We make Fresh EBT, a free mobile app that empowers low-income Americans to more easily manage their benefits, save money, and earn income. Over 1 million people use Fresh EBT monthly across the US.

Propel offers a unique opportunity to create social impact at scale and at a for-profit company. We’re backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top investors, including Andreessen Horowitz, the Omidyar Network, Kevin Durant, and Max Levchin. We're still a small team, enabling huge individual impact and promoting professional growth and flexibility.

Under our current business model, we vet and promote partners that offer valuable services, discounts, and job opportunities to our users. Current customers include retailers, consumer brands, financial services companies, employers, and nonprofits.

You'll join our business team at a critical time as we both grow our revenue and experiment with new business models.

This summer you will:

  • Explore new business verticals based on our users' needs (areas for further exploration include financial services, grocery retail, and healthcare)
  • Understand user pain points within those verticals and identify product/partnership opportunities to address those challenges
  • Identify potential customers and partners in the space; size each opportunity for Propel in terms of revenue, user acquisition, etc.
  • Begin outreach to customers and partners

We’re looking for candidates who:

  • Are currently enrolled in a 2-3 year graduate degree program, preferably an MBA program
  • Have experience with business development, strategy, and biz-ops at a start-up or at a management consulting firm
  • Are comfortable in a small team environment and willing to pitch in to aspects of our growth that may not fit neatly into the job description
  • Share our passion for building a business that sits at the intersection of the private and public sector

This internship is a paid, full-time commitment based in Brooklyn, NY for 10-12 weeks during the summer of 2018 (exact dates flexible).
