Why Work for TAMGA?

If you’re ambitious, open to being challenged, ready to be accountable for your work, and looking to learn by doing, you belong on our team. We support our interns to learn, connect with people in the industry, and develop skills and a track record that will support them in the long-term. TAMGA is growing fast and constantly changing, so everyone who joins the team learns on their feet and takes on real responsibility. Our main goal is to build a full-time team who will grow with the business in North America and beyond – the sky is the limit!

 

About the Position

This position is a 3-month internship, with a stipend that’s paid monthly. TAMGA internships are not defined by hours of work, but by the completion and ownership of tasks agreed upon by intern and supervisor. That being said, 10-15 hours per week is a fair estimation of the minimum amount of time required to successfully perform the duties required.

 

Office space is provided if needed, however our team is very mobile so there is no need to work in a fixed location aside from weekly meetings. We’re a fast-growing business and love adding passionate people to our team who take leadership and create great things!
