Jobs

Business Intern

Presence Orb is a dynamic and fast-moving technology startup. Their data analytics portal helps venue managers in retail, hospitality and leisure learn as much about how their visitors behave as online businesses.

This data allows managers to understand how visitors interact with venues, and use actionable insights to reduce costs, drive revenue, engage visitors and gain competitive advantage. The portal collects data on how visitors and staff use your commercial space, through mobile phone signals and customers’ existing wifi network.

In addition to passive data such as footfall, new vs returning visitors and dwell times, wifi splash paging allows managers to find out who their customers are, capturing information such as gender, age and contact information. All this data can then be used to engage with customers using surveys or email marketing campaigns, reduce operational costs such as staffing, increase customer engagement and drive revenue.

We are looking for a bright, dynamic and proactive intern to join our small team, and learn the inner workings of a tech startup by supporting in a wide range of business activities.
