Supply Chain Intern / Sports Management

Tough Mudder

The Details:
Tough Mudder's mission is "to create unconventional, life-changing experiences," and from day one, we've built a culture to reflect that philosophy. TMHQ is full of quirky overachievers who are smart, passionate, and great at their jobs. And we all started somewhere. From CEO Will Dean to our newest employees, there was a time when each of us had a blank sheet of paper for a resume.
Our ideal intern wants more than a few lines on their resume - they want to help build a company that changes the lives of millions of people for the better. As a TMHQ intern, you'll be given an opportunity to push your boundaries and find out what you're capable of, to work with and learn from incredibly smart people, and, most of all, to enjoy the journey of building a world-class events organization.
