EdSights – Paid remote internship at New York City EdTech Startup with a focus on social impact and education, open to all undergraduate students.
At A Glance
Job Type: Part-time Internship
Role: Partner Success & Implementation Specialist
Start Date: Fall 2020 and Spring 2021
Compensation Type: Paid
We bring together the power of AI and texting to solve Higher Education’s most challenging problems. Our chatbot (named after colleges’ mascots) helps universities engage, support and retain their students. As we engage with tens of thousands of students, we collect meaningful data about their college experience that helps universities listen to the voices of students at scale.
At EdSights, you will be working on new technologies that drive large scale social impact. You will be joining a small, but growing team and be part of an exciting stage of a technology startup. EdSights is backed by Techstars, and our investors include Lakehouse VC, Kairos VC, Andy Dunn (Founder of Bonobos), Dave Gilboa (Founder of Warby Parker) and Jenny Fleiss (Founder of Rent the Runway.)
EdSights uses AI-powered chatbots to guide students through college and help them graduate. Think of a Siri for college, that you speak with over text message and that is named after your mascot. You can text the chatbot things like “how do I register for classes” or “when is the deadline for FASFA” and the bot will instantly connect you to the appropriate resource or response. We are seeking undergraduate students to help with the implementation and training of our chatbots. If you join our team you will help us set up chatbots at new University clients by adding information to their “brain” and training the bot to become smarter every day. You will also help us write the responses the chatbot sends back to students, essentially helping us build the personality of our AI-powered robot!
