Public Relations Summer Intern

Gunpowder Inc.

We are passionate. We are dreamers. Tech geeks. Artists. Hunters. Gatherers. Realists. Writers. Seekers of truth. Entrepreneurs. Foodies. Photographers. Parents. Students. Not an office, but a collective of people from different walks of life. With different skill sets. Each with our own ideas and our own story. And as much as we love to celebrate and leverage our diversity and differences, we have one thing in common: a burning, unending desire to do work that matters on behalf of brands that want to do the same. We are assembled in a way no agency has dared before. We put egos and titles aside and focus on building a network of people that expands what is possible. Our open approach leveraging talent from literally around the world means our clients get better thinking, custom teams and solutions and not a "one size fits all" approach to solving their toughest business challenges.
