Growth & Ops Summer Internship (paid)

Job description

Note: This is summer internship for penultimate year students and recent graduates (for 2-3 months starting  in June/July). We aim to make full-time job offers on completion of the internship to any strong performers who have already graduated. 

About Tab

We're a YC-backed fintech company that powers travel & tourism businesses in 40 countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia. Our software and payment platform helps tourism businesses to save on payment costs, manage and take bookings more flexibly – while spending less time on admin and more time with their customers. 

We work with hotels (from budget to boutique) and activity operations like dive schools, surf lodges and yoga retreats. Our initial focus is emerging destinations, in countries where payment and booking systems are a significant challenge.

Our platform is trusted hundreds of tourism businesses around the world, and we've helped hundreds of thousands of travellers to pay in over 100 currencies.

We're working on ambitious plans to revolutionise the experience of independent travel – by helping travellers make the most of their precious time abroad, and giving local tourism operators the vital tools they need to run their business.

We're primarily based in London, and we're backed by Y Combinator (the investors behind Airbnb, Dropbox and Stripe). Our team has deep expertise across travel, finance and technology – with previous experience at Cambridge University, Harvard and BCG.


About the Role

This is an exciting opportunity to join the early team at Tab for the summer (2-3 months, starting in June/July). We aim to make full-time job offers on completion of the internship to any strong performers who have already graduated. 

You'll have the chance to learn directly from the founders (ex-Cambridge, BCG, HBS & Y Combinator) and other team members as Tab executes its ambitious growth plan.

We move fast, so you'll start having a meaningful impact on the business in your first week. You'll also be encouraged to contribute across all areas – we all help each other out.

You'll divide your time between Growth (helping to acquire new businesses and expand our platform) and Operations (managing our relationships with businesses and making sure critical operations run smoothly). You'll help to design and build the products and processes that enable us to continue scaling rapidly, while improving our product experience and maintaining a high level of empathy for our customers who use Tab every single day.

This role is full of variety – here's a few things you could be working on:

  • Talking to prospective customers, to understand how their tourist business works and explain how Tab can benefit them.
  • Helping to launch new products/features on our platform quickly, and eliciting the feedback needed to make them 10x better.
  • Focusing on a particular geography or type of business, to grow our presence and tailor our platform to that group's specific needs.
  • Managing a new growth initiative – from specifying and designing content to launching and measuring the impact.
  • Helping to answer customer support queries (we all pitch in with this).


About You

  • You're either a recent graduate or in your penultimate year at a top University.
  • You're comfortable with numbers, and know your way around Excel.
  • You’ve had hands-on experience at a business, running a society or on a side project (bonus points if you’ve done some digital marketing). 
  • Fluency in Spanish is a bonus, but not required.
  • You have the right to work in the UK (we’re based in Central London) – unfortunately we're not able to  sponsor visas right now.
