Internships: Come Join The Green Family!

Live In Chile. Improve Your Spanish. Do Inspiring Work With People You Love.

Have you ever dreamed of an internship in South America? La Bicicleta Verde is offering positions at their Santiago office to young, enthusiastic, hard-working people who have an interest in the tourism industry. Come join a weird, passionate family at a dynamic sustainable tourism start-up in Chile. Do inspiring, fulfilling work with people you love.

This ain’t your average office job. Internships can be in a variety of areas such as marketing, promotion, public relations, and operations, but one thing’s for sure–you won’t be sitting on your butt for too long. Oh, and did we mention that every intern is fluent in Spanish by the end of their time here?

If you have any specific skills that you are good at but don’t know how they could be helpful to a tourism start-up, just let us know! Do you blog really well, take pictures semi-professionally, make great jokes, know how to edit videos, train street dogs, juggle, bake cookies, etc…? You never know how weird talents can help small companies!

Applicants can be Chileans or foreigners, but all should speak at least an intermediate level of Spanish.
