Program Description:
Central de Ofertas (Puentes Abroad)
About: Central de Ofertas’ online platform levels the playing field for small, growing businesses by giving them access to drastically reduced prices usually only available to larger vendors. The founders of this tech startup have worked in the massive consumer goods industry for over ten years, and they saw the untapped resource of the small business discounts, since the majority of Argentines shop at smaller kiosks, corner stores, and local supermarkets, instead of large superstores or major retailers.

Intern responsibilities: IIP interns will work in one of the following positions:
  • The Business Analyst intern will work with the company founders to manage weekly discount offers and analyze the profit margin of these offers to ensure the company’s profitability and growth.  If the intern is proficient in Spanish, he or she will also be able to meet with small business owners in Buenos Aires to evaluate their possible participation in the Central de Ofertas platform.
  • The Community Management intern will work on key projects to promote the company and the platform. The focus will be on Facebook, Google, and digital marketing outreach to increase user base and brand recognition.
 
Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in economics, engineering, business, technology, or marketing are encouraged to apply.  Analytical problem solvers are ideal. Basic Spanish is recommended for the Business Analyst internship.  Fluent Spanish is required for the Community Management internship.
