Product Intern

BeeCastleMelbourne, Australia1M ago


The team at BeeCastle are looking for an outstanding and motivated product person that will help us on our mission to change how businesses manage their relationships.

Founded less than a year ago, BeeCastle is a pre-launch funded SaaS start-up that focuses on measuring and improving the most critical thing for many high value B2B businesses – your relationship with your clients.

To do so we use large scale data ingestion & proprietary algorithms to allow all team members to see the health of your relationship with a company and your connection with the individuals within that company. We then use that information to intelligently advise the team on what relationship building activities will bring the biggest bang for their buck.

This internship is an opportunity to join from the ground floor and learn from an experienced team trying to do globally impactful things – if that sounds interesting, please apply by clicking the link and submitting your details!

What we’re looking for

  • Self-starter with a keen analytical eye – much of your work will require the ability to think through tricky problems and communicate your thinking to the rest of the team
  • Confidence in liaising with customers and external partners – our earliest customers are our most precious resource so the person will need to be comfortable helping learn from and manage those relationships.
  • Keen interest in technology, in particular the SaaS market
  • Ability to learn quickly and comfortable with ambiguity - as an early stage start-up there is no guide book or established processes so you must be comfortable working out things together with us as you go
  • Good team mate that’s comfortable to work remotely - we’re a no drama team looking to work with great people. Some team members are based in Melbourne but our team is spread across Australia as a mixed remote team.

This isn’t one of those internships where we expect you to already have the CV of a 20 year product professional but there are bonus points if…

  • You have worked in software development in a product or engineering capacity
  • You have experience in customer service, particularly in the B2B space

Your typical day may include

  • Developing product features – from mapping customer experiences to working with the designer, to writing stories for technical build
  • Supporting our early customers as they use our product and using that knowledge to inform the product roadmap
  • Research and analysis, which includes competitor analysis, industry best practice, customer number crunching

What we offer

  • $25 per hour, up to 3 days a week
  • Experience product development in a funded early stage start up
  • Working with a killer team whom hopefully you learn a lot from and who are keen to learn from you.
  • A progressive, flexible working experience - our single focus is getting stuff done and making customers delighted, not living by prescribed working hours and internal processes. Instead of crazy perks, we focus on creating a culture of trust and inclusion.
