Dot-com boom lives on in Alphatise’s internship program

Dot-com boom lives on in Alphatise’s internship program

Local start-up marks its beginning by offering what it calls the “world’s best internship.”

Local start-up, Alphatise, is marking its debut by offering a $100,000 employment package to a university recruit.

The social commerce marketplace is looking for an intern that will work at Alphatise for 12 months, in that time learning more about the business and its potential global expansion.

Co-founder, Ben Nowlan, said the Sydney-based company already has a team of 33 employees and is continually growing.

“This is an exciting time for someone to join our team and be a part of a new venture,” he said.

Candidates are required to create a profile and upload a 60-second video, which will then need to gain votes to impress Nowlan and co-founders Paul Pearson and Richard Frey.

“We’re looking for someone that is keen to learn how our business will empower shoppers as well as bring some fresh, digitally-driven thinking to mix,” Nowlan said.

Providing a way in

Successful applicant will not only receive $50,000 in salary and $50,000 in Alphatise shares, but also a brand new Nissan Juke, notebook PC and a mobile phone on the 12-month contract.

Nowlan said the internship program provides an opportunity to a lucky individual to develop their individual skills.

“Whether it’s sales and marketing or being part of our world-class technology development team, we’ll help to make that happen for them,” he said.

Nowlan expects the on-the-job training aspect of the internship to be the most beneficial for a new recruit.

“Australia is currently suffering a youth-unemployment crisis, and university students are arguably emerging from their degrees without the skillset needed to meet the needs of the businesses from the get-go,” he said.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
