SportsRecruits Event Management & Operations Intern - Paid Remote Internship (Fall 2021) in Brooklyn, New York
At the core of SportsRecruits is a software platform that connects high school athletes & their club organizations to every college coach in the country. Our goal is to bring together student-athletes, college coaches, and event organizers in one network to create opportunities for everyone involved in the athletic recruiting process. We have built the EventBeacon (https://www.eventbeacon.com/) suite of tools to catalyze connections between these groups in the recruiting event setting, specifically. Connections made our network have resulted in commitments to the best academic and athletic institutions across the country.
SportsRecruits is privately held and headquartered in Brooklyn, NY. Right now our team is completely remote. We have spent a lot of time cultivating the same lively and tight kit company culture that we had in our office in Brooklyn. We feel confident that we will be able to continue to foster this environment whether our teammates are in the office or working from home.
