About Us

SoftwareSelect is a part of the Black & White Zebra group of brands and powers a wide range of sites covering many software industries. As a technology platform, SoftwareSelect is enabling software vendors to connect with their ideal customers through a range of products and digital marketing services we offer - all managed through one convenient vendor portal. Currently, It is primarily responsible for Crozdesk.com, a software marketplace and comparison site that helps businesses globally decide on which software solutions to use. Through these brands and Crozdesk.com, we enable the vendors to advertise their solutions. From CRM to Accounting and Marketing Automation to Supply Chain Management - we cover 350+ categories of business software and compare almost everything for our visitors!

One of our duties as a comparison platform is to provide relevant, informative, and helpful content around software solutions, trends in the SaaS industry, and in-depth expert knowledge on particular tools and platforms. Our visitors use this content in order to make purchase decisions for their business. Thus, we write and engage with our business audience on both sides: with the vendor as well as the buyer. Our content is independent and we leverage our database of more than 10,000 solutions listed on our database to derive market and performance insights.

The Internship

To help us with the content production and vendor engagement, we’re looking for a graduate or student with an analytical mind, a hands-on attitude, and a knack for details to join us for a 3+ months internship. You NEED to be pro-active.

You’ll be part of a small startup team and work on data-driven SEO strategy and content marketing initiatives across various industries and Software-as-a-Service categories. You will get the chance to work with partners, users, and colleagues to produce, edit, and manage the content we publish through our software comparison sites.

You’ll also be working on data-driven sales prospecting, outreach, and operations projects, across several products and business functions. This will offer the chance to help refine and test internal sales and marketing initiatives and will involve handling large datasets and working with a range of online systems (e.g. CRM, Google Sheets, analytics programs, marketing automation systems, etc.).

The internship is best suited for well-rounded candidates who don’t mind a challenge and are looking to learn and be part of an environment where responsibilities are shared regardless of the job title. Technical acumen and analytical thinking/writing abilities are key. Experience with LinkedIn and Marketing Automation software is great.
