About the Program: 

The VMG Partners ecosystem of brands stands for diversity, equity, and inclusion. As such, in partnership with their portfolio companies – [solidcore], OVME, Milton’s Craft Bakers, Swell, Shogun – 10 interns from colleges across the country will partake in a 10-week internship program in which they will participate in on-the-job training across a range of functions, as well as engage in panels, workshops, and more. To ultimately, equip them with skills and a network to start a career within consumer/services/retail and tech industries, whether as an entrepreneur, an operator, or beyond.

Shogun is on a mission to empower brands to create exceptional ecommerce experiences, and in the process, build the best remote company. In order to build the best remote company, we need to hire the best talent, which is where you come in. Shogun is looking for a motivated and naturally curious talent acquisition intern who will help us identify, engage with, and hire the best talent for our open positions.

You will learn about the various open roles at Shogun and understand the competencies required for someone to be successful in each role.
