About SimpL: Through the power of a small team of 30 people with ages ranging from 16-30, SimpL has developed a product that uses cutting edge pose estimation research to ensure that no one gets injured while working out. In short, they are revolutionizing and democratizing the intersection of technology and fitness. The company just placed in the top 10 of University startups in Amazon’s Web Services 2020 competition.
About the Role: While your internship would be unpaid, the knowledge and experience you would gain from reporting directly to the CEO, CTO, CMO, and Creative Director daily of a company that’s on the cusp of receiving angel funding in the second quarter, would set you apart when applying for jobs upon graduating from Middlebury. If you prove yourself a good worker, you’ll also be eligible for a spot on the team.
Why SimpL? If you were to join the team, you’d be working for a cause that will change the world. Their mission statement is to democratize fitness and health; to mitigate and eliminate unnecessary injuries in the weight room, to supplement and improve the occupational therapy/recovery process following an injury. Here is a video behind what they are doing:
