Join Us

Join an exciting team committed to creating and marketing bold new software! This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join a dynamic technology company and be a part of the company’s early success. Your drive and desire to succeed is just what PromoterMotor is looking for.

Why Us? As a growing company, we take pride in being attentive to all interns, contractors, employees, and corporate partners. The CEO and department supervisors work directly with all team members (including interns!) to ensure every person’s voice is heard and personal guidance is provided. The company also holds frequent “Rule of Thumb” meetings to encourage growth, teamwork, and camaraderie among all interns. At the very heart of PromoterMotor lies compassion; the company hopes to foster that in everything it does.

Personalities That Work Well Here: PromoterMotor seeks individuals who are interested in making the world a better place through the use and production of technology. Ideal candidates are self-disciplined and skillfully maintain a balance of independence and collaboration in order to work at their own pace and get the job done.

Points of Inspiration: our approaches to advertising, customer education, and measuring return-on-investment are a possible solution to what Dan Pallotta proposed about overhead versus the importance of scaling up for non-profits and taking risks. Also, did you know that the theories of Universal Gravitation and Relativity were both invented by people who were working from home? We are creating the virtual workplace of the future along the lines of what the CEO of Automattic, a company worth more than $3B with over 1,400 employees who almost entirely work remotely, calls Level 5, and GitLab, which is entirely remote and had an IPO worth $15B.

Equally Different: PromoterMotor prioritizes safe and inclusive space for everyone no matter where you’re from, how you identify, or who you love. We have a diverse culture that welcomes people from all over the world. If you share these values and also have great skills, enthusiasm, and passion for helping non-profits and countering misinformation, then you belong with us!

All nonprofits we serve are required to be compliant with Google’s non-discrimination policies, meaning that Bashpole works with a diverse set of nonprofits such as ones working on crime to mental health issues to combat misinformation. Thus, PromoterMotor employees, interns, and consultants are expected to be non-discriminatory themselves and help us serve any nonprofit that fits the Google Ad Grant eligibility guidelines.



“Interning at PromoterMotor was a huge opportunity that allowed me to gain vital experience within the business field. Specifically, I was able to collaborate with both my team and other departments to implement strategies and solutions to better promote nonprofits and their social causes. The culture at PromoterMotor is unlike any other, and under Ben’s leadership and guidance, the company is constantly working to improve its ability to support clients and their missions in order to benefit society. Throughout my time here, I felt that the inclusive environment and forward-thinking attitude of the company allowed me to implement solutions and automate different processes, allowing me to build on my college skillset. I am grateful for the opportunity that PromoterMotor provided to create such an enriching and fulfilling experience for me. Thank you so much!”

“Working for PromoterMotor has been a remarkable opportunity for me. During my time here, I gained much more than I initially anticipated. The training program was diverse and included collaboration with multiple departments, fostering personal and professional growth through project-based learning. This experience challenged me to develop not only web development skills but also to think like a business person, identifying effective strategies to increase conversion rates and attract clients through websites. The friendly culture at PromoterMotor, under Ben's exceptional leadership, has been phenomenal. Ben provided constant feedback throughout my internship, which has helped me improve significantly. I also appreciated the freedom to come up with my own ideas and implement them using the skillset I acquired in college. PromoterMotor taught me crucial lessons in sales and communication with clients while instilling a sense of professionalism and teamwork.

“My business internship had a range of training aspects and was project-based. For example, during my time, I analyzed sales communication to identify effective strategies to increase conversion rates. I also developed a process to project impressions for campaigns for prospective and current clients. The freedom I had in designing my processes and analyses made me feel very proud of the final results as I knew that it was mainly my own work. I was glad my projects we appreciated by the company. I grew the skills I wanted to improve because I chose the projects I worked with. Throughout my experience, Mr. Ashpole showed exceptional leadership. He gave valuable feedback as well as objective advice while remaining calm and collected. Also, due to the company’s openness to international students, there was a large diversity in the interns’ backgrounds. This made networking meetings interesting and helped find creative solutions. Overall, this internship has helped me to grow individually and professionally.”

“As an intern for Bashpole, I worked on finding nonprofits who could benefit from our services and reaching out to set up sales meetings. I learned a lot about sales methodologies, effective writing and communication, and coming up with new business strategies. I greatly enjoyed working with a team of interns to brainstorm new ideas and provide feedback on each other’s work. The internship overall is a great way to get practical experience in a specific field. The flexibility of the internship allows you to divide up your time and focus your efforts on what you’re truly interested in.”

“Interning for Bashpole has been a fantastic experience. From assisting both the Marketing 1B team and the Business 2B team, I can say every day is a new experience. In such a short amount of time, you have the chance to work on multiple projects and with a diverse team. If you are looking for a place you can make a difference, Bashpole is for you. The projects you do not only impacts your nonprofit clients but also the company as a whole. It is not every place you have the chance to be mentored by the CEO.

“It has truly been a privilege to be a part of Bashpole, more specifically, the Business2B team, and help nonprofits help make a difference in this world. In such a short amount of time, you come out having gained much experience for your career path, which is bound to be anyone’s case, as long as you take advantage of every opportunity offered. For my particular position, I not only had to find a prospect we could work with but meet with them and, through Ben’s presentation, witness how we communicate and gain a client. You have the opportunity to connect with the CEO at least once a week. He is a great mentor who guides you in various ways to improve your work, listens to your feedback, and is willing to make improvements from your advice to grow stronger as a company. Ben is also keen on ensuring you understand why he assigns you and your team certain tasks so that you all see the value behind them and complete it successfully. As a future entrepreneur, this has also been a great experience in learning how business people should run more businesses, valuing everyone who makes part of it to all meet eye to eye and achieve its purpose. The environment here is very inviting; everyone welcomes you with open arms and is willing to meet with you to ensure you are settled in and clear on your role. You and your work will never go unnoticed here, and I advise you to apply. You won’t regret it!”

“The best part of this internship is the experience of working with the team, from not knowing anything at the beginning to gradually getting used to analyzing and exporting data on Google Ads and Google Analytics and analyzing essential data indicators in spreadsheets. When we encountered problems in our work, we discussed the problem together and came up with various solutions and finally determined the best solution. This team collaboration experience was precious; the team environment also motivated me to develop my potential and learn new knowledge on my own, which is also valuable.”

When I was working with my group members, I felt my efficiency was at its highest. The training the company provided offered me a fresh taste about the real world and gave me a sense of professionalism when doing tasks. In the end, the supervisors were all very nice and willing to offer help! They made me believe: we are always a family!” 

Zhenjie (Jim) Yu

“I got a very precious internship experience in Bashpole. I joined the Business 2A team for a three-and-a-half-month internship. During this period, I learned all-around usage skills of Google spreadsheets and helped the company build a lot of practical spreadsheets. I also gained a detailed understanding of the two tools of Google: the use of Google Ads and Google Analytics, and the acquisition and analysis of target website data. During the internship, I enjoyed a wealth of experience and understanding of remote cooperation between the company and the team. During the meetings with clients, I gained the ability to record and extract key points and experience in customizing different goals for several clients. Extracting and processing data from the website and producing feedback for customers’ case studies were also an important part of my work. This was a very meaningful internship experience that exposed me to real-world cases that successfully helped me transition from school with real-world work.” 

Ryan Cao

“It was truly a pleasant journey interning at Bashpole this summer. I was able to work closely with my supervisor, my teammates from Business 2A, and some other amazing employees and interns from different teams. I have worked on various types of projects that allow me to stretch my understanding of not only analytics, but also some understanding of business, marketing, and communication. On top of working with current clients, I also got to meet many new prospects and hear their stories which are very inspiring and eye-opening. Learning about different nonprofit’s missions and values are something unique to this internship, and I was glad to be part of a team that offered help and advise to them. The experience at Bashpole extended beyond just finishing what was assigned to me; it allowed me to plan out projects and proceed with some creativity. The remote working environment also taught me to pace my work time and strengthened my time-management skill. At Bashpole, I gained skills that I know will benefit me throughout my career.”

“The experience of working in the business strategy team is very interesting. As interns, we are given freedom in expressing our ideas and actually working them out step by step. For example, our team has evaluated the ROI and SROI of nonprofits, created metrics, and quantified their social impacts with marketing funnels. We have also tracked conversions on Google Analytics and wrote case studies for summarizing their performances and continued social impacts. The people there are all very nice, and I am lucky to work with so many awesome people in my team.”

“Bashpole has not only provided an exceptional professional experience as a business intern, but also an invaluable company culture that is crucial for growth. I had the pleasure of working and collaborating with an extremely diverse team from all over the world, as well as the CEO himself in weekly meetings. As a business intern, I had the opportunity to interview directors and executives of several nonprofits across the nation, as well as participate in sales meetings and discussions from other departments. I had the opportunity to share and work on my own thoughts and ideas through discussion with Ben and other teammates. Bashpole fosters an encouraging and growth-oriented culture that is critical to any aspiring team member, new to the workforce or not.”

From on-boarding to off-boarding, the process and expectations were very clearly laid out with flexibility for us to individualize our work as well as improve it for future interns. I can not speak highly enough of Ben’s leadership and how much I gained from this internship experience.” 

Molly Thomas

“My internship at Bashpole has been a great journey. I worked with my team on a variety of projects that made the investment processes more transparent for nonprofits.

The position allowed me to think creatively, take initiatives, and engage in conversations directly with clients, supervisors, and talk with anyone in the company. The culture at Bashpole encourages me to be bold in ideas and effective in actions, which has brought me huge personal growth.

“As an intern, I really appreciated the help of the teammates, and I think teamwork played an important role in my internship. Also, since the case study was a new task for the whole team, I very much enjoyed aggregating the team’s ideas to show them in the case study. Then, during the monthly meeting with clients, it was very satisfying to hear the clients praising the case study as good work.” 

Ella Wang

2021, George Washington University

“I could see how every project and task I was able to work on at Bashpole actively added value to the company and its clients. This was a great opportunity to practice thinking creatively, taking initiative, and communicating effectively to peers, the supervisor, and clients. There was a good balance between being able to independently explore different tasks and also having frequent check-in meetings to ask questions and receive guidance. The internship allowed me to be challenged, refine my skills, and continue to grow.”

Diane Li

“My internship at Bashpole has been a great adventure. I have learned so much from working with my talented peers as well as meeting with nonprofit executives to learn about their missions, their needs, and what we can do to help them make a difference in the world. I really appreciate the opportunity Ben provides our team to develop new ideas, convert them to actionable projects, and really utilize our work as deliverables for the clients. As an intern at Bashpole, I was able to improve my business acumen, my problem-solving skills, project management skills and communication skills, while developing a better understanding of the industry. If you are interested in working with nonprofits and develop essential skills in the business field, this is a great place to learn and grow as a professional, and more importantly, you will be given the opportunity to make a difference.”

“This internship is a fantastic first experience for undergraduates who are searching for a clearer picture of what they want to do with their lives. Before this opportunity, I knew I wanted to pursue business, but I didn’t know much more than that. Although I don’t think this line of work is exactly what I want to pursue out of college, it has allowed me a chance to sharpen the tools — communication, critical thinking, leadership, teamwork — that are necessary for any career path I may choose. I have seen immense personal growth thanks to this opportunity and the mentorship Ben has provided. In many companies, interns are just another cog in a colossal machine; at Bashpole, you are an integral part of the team and have the capability to bring about real change. I would urge anyone who wants to make a difference to seriously consider this opportunity.”

Joshua Basa

2021, University of California, Davis

“I enjoyed my time at Bashpole, particularly all the bright people that I was surrounded by in my consulting team. This was a good opportunity to gain exposure to nonprofit executives in a variety of areas. This internship is flexible and allows interns to decide when in the week to complete their assignments to fit their schedule. I was able to greatly improve my communication and collaboration skills, while getting frequent feedback.”

“The responsibilities as an intern are very straightforward, and the team meetings are clearly represented in the Google Calendar. The process of reaching out to interviewees, conducting the interview, and moving along the process tracking folder is clear and easy to follow. I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and collaborate with other interns in the Business Team. The internship also taught me personable skills like how to collaborate via call, network, pitch ideas, or even confront individuals. I also liked the fact that we were able to directly talk with the people involved in the work that we were doing. For example, my supervisor was always present during the team meetings, and most, if not all, interns were present to offer feedback.”

I have gained valuable experience in solving real business problems with skills improvement, especially for data analysis. The work culture is very appealing to me. Everyone can work on the projects based on their interests and have the opportunity to lead the project. And our opinions are welcome and count at work.

“My internship at Bashpole was an extremely positive experience and I am so thankful to Ben for giving me the opportunity to work with him and his exceptional team this past summer. As a market research intern, I spoke with nonprofit executives about the various challenges they were facing due to the pandemic and possible solutions that they could implement to mitigate these. I met a lot of great people who are doing such meaningful work around the world through my role at Bashpole. I learned a lot from these men and women and hope to maintain the relationships I have made with them and their organizations going forward. This summer, I gained a deeper understanding of nonprofits’ roles in society and feel I was able to make a real impact not only on nonprofits, but the people they serve, as well. I was proud to be a Bashpole intern knowing that I was a part of a team of passionate and driven individuals that were dedicated to helping populations that were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.”

Individually, I researched the tax returns of potential customers to ascertain which organizations to target down the line. This gave me the flexibility to explore individual projects with the support of experienced professionals. Additionally, the variety of the training keeps everybody on their feet and forces you to continuously learn new skills. Plus, you can work in your PJs! But, the biggest plus of the whole experience is the relationships you gain with other students and employees who are all working together to make the world a better place.”

"My Digital Design internship was a successful experience in bringing my ideas to a group of many individuals with a wide range of skills and backgrounds to apply feedback. PromoterMotor allowed me to contribute to materials such as a home page design and a collaborative book being written. The company environment and my relationship with my peers and supervisors were always comfortable." 

Lauren Ruggiero

2023, University of Connecticut

"Interning at Bashpole taught me several soft and hard skills that I will carry with me throughout my career and personal life. I had the opportunity to meet people from various places in the world, learning about each of their different perspectives, goals, and interests. In terms of my profession, I learned how to apply user experience (UX) design and the iterative design thinking process throughout Bashpole’s main software product, PromotorMotor. Bashpole will always have a special place in my heart as a company that strove for my success, valued my ideas, and cherished me as an individual.

Holly Sarah Liban

2023, University of Tennessee Knoxville

“During my time at Bashpole, I not only learned a lot about design and UI/UX but also about responsibility and how to collaborate in a workplace environment. I regularly met with interns in other departments and learned about their projects, which further helped me in my own work. I appreciated the responsibility, trust, and creative control that I was given during my internship. My suggestions and ideas were valued, and all interactions and discussions were positive and constructive. Aside from the work itself, our all-intern meetings taught me valuable lessons for how to function when we enter the workplace after graduation.” 

Dhathry Doppalapudi

“When I first joined Bashpole, I was unsure and didn’t know what to expect. But at the end of it all, I can confidently say that interning at Bashpole has taught me so much about company culture, working in a team, and what it’s like to work in the real world. Everyday there were things to do or meetings to attend. I was never sitting around or waiting, all the work I did was important to the company. The company is also extremely welcoming and encourages us to network with other interns. If I could sum up my entire internship into one word it would be ‘rewarding.'”

Mitchell Zhou,

2022, New York University

“Since even before the beginning of my time at Bashpole, the company page on our website explicitly states this will not be an internship for those who are expecting a coffee-fetching internship. Bashpole has followed through their promise of a meaningful and fully-immersive experience in which interns learn a lot about the company, expectations of their role, and themselves as an employee in the workforce. In following through on their promise, supervisors value honesty and speaking up when there is a need to further delve into a topic, instruction, etc. I have found that the supervisors and interns alike see every employee as a human capable of great contributions. One of the ultimate pleasures I have had working here is working with employees who have a willingness to drop what they are doing and help others who request their assistance.”

Kendra Wu, 2021

University of Puget Sound

“I came into Bashpole Software looking for an opportunity to apply my skills in a professional environment. I was able to accomplish just this and even more. I was welcomed into a company full of kind and caring interns and supervisors. I felt like a valuable member of the team and was able to expand my design skills while networking with interns from all around the world. I appreciated how there was a form of direct communication with my supervisor. I was able to readily receive helpful suggestions on my work and advice for my future career. I definitely learned a lot as an intern and know that in the future, I will apply the skills I learned through my projects at Bashpole.” 

Vaishnavi Dontineni

“My experience this summer was a growing one. I worked on meaningful projects and topics that interest me. I was nervous, being that this was my first full-time summer internship, but Ben and the whole team made great efforts to make me feel welcome and heard. In a virtual space, the company culture is motivating and friendly. The team meetings were a safe place to share and ask questions. I gained the knowledge and skills that I wouldn’t have developed in class. I will definitely take all these lessons for my future opportunities.”

Maggie Hoang

2020, University of Washington. Went on to be a Researcher at DogPaws Project

“My 13-week internship at Bashpole has been a great learning experience for me. I want to first express my thanks to Ben and my teammates for making this internship great. The best part of my summer is that I was able to work on several projects with the choice of my interests. I was grateful for the opportunity to explore designing mock-ups, creating landing pages, and advertising with Google Ads. Seeing the pages and the ads I created being online is very rewarding. If you want to work on real-life projects that make lasting impacts, Bashpole is the right place. Plus, the culture here is collaborative – everyone is encouraged to speak up during a meeting and network with other interns from all teams. I enjoyed connecting with other interns and learning more about their cool projects. Finally, I always feel our work is appreciated as Ben gave accomplishments frequently, letting us know that our work is beneficial, both for nonprofits and for Bashpole.”

From the start, I was warmly welcomed and now with an exciting and bittersweet moment, I can truly say that this company values professionalism, expertise, and most importantly those who have the courage to speak up and take the initiative to go above and beyond. Their willingness and transparency give me confidence in my future. I wholeheartedly recommend others to join the amazing company that is PromoterMotor!”

Mina Cheema

2023, University of Central Arkansas

“My time with PromoterMotor has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. I cannot say enough positive things about the culture at Bashpole, my peers, the CEO Ben Ashpole, and the Human Resources Internship Experience 2. In this role, I was able to get hands-on experience in a number of ways; reviewing resumes and applications, writing contractor and internship descriptions, improving upon our existing staff tracking system, and my personal favorite, interviewing candidates. I was pleasantly surprised that when I joined the team, I was able to immediately begin seeing that my participation at Bashpole made a difference. One of my favorite parts of being with Bashpole is having the opportunity for my voice to be heard and being encouraged to speak up when necessary. Ben and my peers were always so supportive, encouraging, and open to hearing my thoughts and suggestions. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with this organization and I’d recommend this internship to any student looking to gain valuable hands-on experience.”

Colette Mahar

2023, University of Delaware

“Bashpole Software, Inc. was my first internship journey in the United States. I was extremely grateful for this opportunity. The CEO Ben who was my supervisor really supported and helped me a lot. He is humble as a person, professional as a leader, and open-minded as a supervisor, so I felt the strong sense of encouragement while working and meeting with him. My peers also did a great job, and I enjoyed working and collaborating with them, too. One of my peers that I worked with and appreciated the most was always kind, supportive, and influenced me a lot. I liked the environment because the people all strongly showed their professionalism and their work ethic! Specifically, I liked the way that all training sheets are listed clearly and logically, so I didn’t feel confused. The remote aspect also gave me flexibility to achieve work/life balance. Bashpole was a fully remote company for a long while even before this pandemic, so it has a mature system of remote working and for online communication. Also, the RoT training book is also one of my highly recommended items from Bashpole — it teaches interns about workplace strategies and ethics. Finally, my supervisor was especially supportive at the beginning when helping me pursue my internship visa and connecting with my school. He used his behavior to teach me the importance of always being respectful to the commitment. I appreciated this internship experience on many levels. Thank you!”

“My experience with Bashpole was such an enjoyable and useful one. I believe that it is extremely valuable to a student, and I really enjoyed the company’s culture of continuous improvement that embraces change. The environment was so friendly with a youthful entrepreneurial spirit. It helped reinforce my knowledge of responsibility, focus, drive, and ambition. I was responsible for interviewing interns, orienting them through on-boarding meetings, and helping to build HRM systems and procedures. I learned to put every theoretical knowledge I have into practice. This experience honed my skills and provided real hands-on experience which is valuable to my future career success. It was an invaluable tool to help me figure out what I want to do. Thank you Bashpole!” 

Lydia Garas

2021, East Carolina University

This being my first internship experience, Bashpole software exceeded my expectations in working in a real world environment. With all the provided resources and the company culture, Bashpole made a large impact on my skills and abilities as well as my personal character growth. Compared to other internship experiences I’ve heard, the interns there were assigned “busy” work with little to no guidance from mentors. Here, interns get extensive training with direct mentorship and everything we do are major contributions to the company. Personally, I was able to strengthen and acquire a plethora of transferable skills that will undoubtedly be beneficial to the rest of my professional life. Overall, I am thankful to have been a part of Bashpole and look forward to my future opportunities with this company still in mind.” 

Jessica Jiang

2021, New York University

“I learned so many things during my experience as a Human Resources intern at Bashpole Software. One of the biggest takeaways for me was the fact that my work here translated to my work in real life. Ben never underestimated me and took into consideration everything I suggested, so I felt like I truly made an impact. I was able to grow confident in myself, my work ethic, and my abilities, which in turn allowed for me to take on challenging tasks in the outside world. Not only has this internship contributed greatly to my professional life, but it’s also a perfect opportunity for those that are looking to succeed and improve as a person, as it teaches you how to be an independent — yet collaborative — individual” 

Ai Okamoto

2021, Binghamton University

“The experience at Bashpole Software both as a Market Research and then a Human Resources Intern has been nothing short of astounding. If you’re someone who wants to tackle real-world challenging problems and be able to translate what you learned in your classroom experiences to solve these kinds of problems, working at Bashpole Software is a great opportunity. As a result of how hands-on the work is here, and the crucial need for creative and analytical thinking that is required, I was able to pick up and develop various skills that have given me a leg up in other areas of my professional career. I would highly recommend working here to anyone who is looking for professional growth and the opportunity to solve problems that make a difference, especially as they relate to the non-profit sector and various noble causes. As I depart, I can fondly look back at my time here and link back a lot of my success both in school and the workplace to what I was able to learn from here.”

“I’ve enjoyed the past summer at Bashpole. If you want to learn about analyzing marketing KPIs and get a chance to lead client meetings, I highly recommend applying for this position. Getting the opportunity to write Google ads and analyze ad performance in front of non-profit executives has been a huge learning opportunity for me. I also appreciated my teammates and supervisor, who were there to answer questions and help out whenever I asked for help. I am grateful that I got the chance to work at Bashpole this past summer. I appreciated the learning environment and supportive teammates.”

“It’s a company that values everyone’s voice and collaboration. We came up with new, innovative ideas to solve problems. Interns learned how to network and collaborate with people from different backgrounds in a professional way. I learned to be a team player, problem-solving, and project management skills.”

“To say that my time in Bashpole was amazing would be an understatement. The support system within the company is well-established and very accommodating. If you’re looking for an internship that actually makes you feel like you make a contribution, this is the one for you. In addition to analyzing data and writing ads, marketing interns also spearhead client meetings and handle a diverse portfolio of nonprofit ad accounts. Marketing interns have agency within the company structure; they make real connections with non-profit executives and work to educate their clients on Google Advertising. Bashpole’s staff are flexible in their approach to business and strongly emphasize growth mindsets, making consistent efforts to improve operations within the company. Overall, this is a perfect opportunity for people who want to expand their professional skill set!”

“My experience this summer has been so enjoyable. I have seen a lot of growth in myself professionally and personally this summer thanks to Bashpole and this internship. The Marketing team was a great group to work with, making me feel very welcomed as a new intern and very appreciated near the end of my time with them. The management style is one that is empowering. Supervisors encourage learning and open communication over micro management and criticism. Overall, Bashpole is a great place to work.”

Catherine Plessala

“My experience this summer at Bashpole was amazing! As a Marketing Season 1A intern, I was able to learn a lot of valuable skills I can apply to in my career. With hands-on training and getting feedback from Ben, I was able to use that to further enhance my skills. Further, I was able to focus on creating ads for nonprofits and work with a team to discuss any questions and help each other on creating ads. I worked on tasks that allowed me to enhance my knowledge and expertise in creating ads. With this internship, I will be able to take the knowledge that I have gained to keep on using for my future career. At Bashpole, it was nothing but a great environment to work with and great mentors like Ben who is there to give valuable feedback to help you succeed.” 

Rawan Alhindi

“My time at Bashpole was full of new experiences and was extremely valuable for my professional development. During my internship, I was able to speak directly to nonprofit organization leaders to show them the success of my advertisement campaigns; this not only boosted my confidence as a marketing intern, but motivated me to work harder to increase the campaign outreach. Though intimidating at first, I also learned how to efficiently network with my marketing teammates and with nonprofit leaders. The inclusive and collaborative culture made me feel free to ask any questions and encouraged teamwork across the different accounts. Additionally, the exposure to Google platforms such as Google Ads, Analytics, and Tag Manager taught me about data analytics while showing me the other side of consumerism. I truly am grateful that I was given this opportunity to grow my critical thinking skills while promoting the positive causes that the nonprofits represent.” 

Rhea Mudnal

“As a Marketing 1.A. intern, I think all aspects of the job went well. I learned to maintain ad campaigns, budgeting and spending, and learned how to utilize Google tools – all without accidentally disrupting the flow of success. Interacting with the clients directly went well; I didn’t have a negative experience and enjoyed building a rapport (especially with Trish from Black Pine!). Overall, this was one of the most hands-on internships I’ve had that encouraged practical skill-building, ranging from verbal communication to software proficiency. The only aspect that needs to be improved on, and is currently improving day by day, is the training. The learning curve as a new marketing intern was rigorous as it was overwhelming, and I personally needed guidance beyond the training spreadsheet. I found that the more the training guide is specified, the more extravagant it is (to the detriment of understanding and accessibility). However, I still stand that it is improving with each intern group and gradually becomes more accessible. Overall, I was given the freedom to educate myself with little pressure on time management, so I could learn it my way, making it a much more efficient process. I found that patience and confidence from Ben encouraged me to overcome the barrier of the learning curve. This actually helped me appreciate the “figure it out” approach so that I can become a capable and independent team member in any future endeavor.” 

Sam Cane

“My experience at Bashpole Software was a tremendously worthwhile and beneficial experience for me. During my time I was able to manage over fifty-thousand dollars worth of advertising budget for non-profit companies directly and much more indirectly. I was also able to work with a team of talented individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds to give me feedback on my work and help me whenever I felt stuck on a project. During my internship, I had countless opportunities to meet with actual clients and showcase the results of the work I had been doing for them throughout the past month. This was by far the most rewarding part of the job as it gave me the feeling that my work was worthwhile and mattered to each of them. These client meetings also greatly increased my speaking and presentation skills which prior to the internship I felt like was the area I needed to improve in the most. During my time at Bashpole Software I also greatly increased my skillset in the areas of data analytics and conversion tracking which is vital in the current business world and eCommerce industry. I am truly thankful that I took this opportunity and believe that it has helped shape me into a much better job candidate, speaker, and critical thinker.”

Ryan Ter Molen

2021, Butler University

“Prior to starting my internship, I found myself apprehensive and anxious about doing well. I was swiftly welcomed with support from my peers and Ben. The virtual work environment that Bashpole Software has created makes you feel as if you are all together and is a supportive space to share ideas. Despite making mistakes and learning along the way, I was always met with constructive comments from Ben which truly allowed me to learn a lot from this experience. I am very thankful that I was able to work alongside Ben, the other interns, and the non-profit organizations.” 

Sophie Hieronymi

2021, Binghamton University

“I had the incredible opportunity to intern with Bashpole during the Covid-19 Pandemic. During this time, the entire nation was only focusing on the public health crisis. As an Ad Writing Intern, I was able to help desperate nonprofits still reach supporters and draw attention to social issues still going on even in the midst of a pandemic. In my position, I was able to connect with great individuals to work together across different teams to improve company systems so that Bashpole can continue to efficiently support great causes. The virtual experience still allowed me to join a company culture of other hardworking interns who shared a passion for technology and service. I concluded my summer with a sense of pride that I was able to successfully learn new tasks, challenge myself on different projects, and support incredible nonprofit causes. Bashpole truly pushes its interns to change the world right from their computers.” 

Max Chuma

“My experience this summer at Bashpole has been exceptional. The amount of real world, practical information that I have learned this summer is extremely vast. I am truly grateful for all aspects of my experience at Bashpole this extends to my boss, my coworkers, clients, and the work that I was so excited to tackle for my clients. A few things I really enjoyed from the internship were the work, the meetings, and the advice given. To begin, I felt truly important with the work that I was given. It wasn’t anything like what I had heard about internship work growing up. I was able to work on projects that were crucial to not only Bashpole, but the nonprofits as well. Next, the meetings were very refreshing given the nature of remote work. It is odd to not be able to walk into the room next to you and ask a coworker or superior a question but the frequency of meetings keeps it from feeling isolated. I truly enjoyed getting to talk to my coworkers each morning, even if only for a matter of ten or so minutes. Lastly, the advice given, specifically from the RoT meetings, is extremely beneficial. It is not common for tips like the ones included in RoT meetings to be given out and written down. Normally, these are just unspoken rules that young professionals are left to discover on their own through trial and error. I found these meetings very helpful and will definitely be using the tips in the future.”

"Participating in the internship at PromoterMotor was a great phase in my career development. Throughout my time with the company, I was deeply involved in challenging projects that honed my understanding of software and application development. Regular coding sessions, team meetings, and peer collaboration meetings boosted my analytical skills. Not only did I improve my proficiency in programming but I also learned invaluable lessons in teamwork and project coordination. The supportive atmosphere fostered by Ben and my peers encouraged open communication and continuous learning. I am immensely thankful for the opportunities provided during my internship and highly recommend PromoterMotor to any aspiring software professional looking to make meaningful advancements in their career."

Simon Shibu

2024, University of Illinois at Chicago

"PromoterMotor provides you with all the tools you need to succeed during your internship. During my time with this company, the best part was being able to collaborate with all the other interns along with working with the CEO Ben Ashpole directly. Ben would always provide examples and ideas when working on our projects; he did so without giving you the complete answer. This was crucial to my development because oftentimes, being given the answers is not the best way of learning. Doing critical thinking and research developed my way of thinking for how I tackle projects. Whenever I would stumble or find myself on a roadblock, being able to lean on my team and even Ben for a fresh way of viewing my project guided me in the right direction to accomplish my tasks."

Kevin Callejas

"Interning at PromoterMotor was an exceptionally well-structured and impactful experience. Even compared to my previous internship at Cognizant, a company with over 350,000 employees, I found PromoterMotor's approach highly effective. The personalized syllabus and comprehensive resources provided a solid foundation, while the inclusive culture and forward-thinking environment allowed me to collaborate on projects that promoted nonprofits. As part of the Software Engineering team, I gained essential technical and problem-solving skills through hands-on experience and mentorship. I am grateful for the enriching experience and wholeheartedly recommend PromoterMotor to anyone looking to make a meaningful difference early in their career.

Collaboration wass a key aspect of this internship; I was encouraged to work with other interns both in and outside my department. The environment was extremely supportive, with everyone offering feedback and suggestions and made me feel welcomed and encouraged to ask questions. I would like to thank Ben, Iggy, and my fellow interns for providing me with this wonderful and fruitful experience. They really helped me create a product that I was proud of, and it felt even better seeing the impact my work had on others!

The projects given to me were all interesting, and these projects allowed me to learn and hone my skills as a programmer. I deepened my knowledge of Java, honed my web development skills, and learned about various technologies Google has, such as Google Apps Script. All while improving my communication and time-management skills. The environment at Bashpole promotes collaboration -— everyone is encouraged to work with each other, giving feedback and ideas relevant to their projects. My supervisors were always there to guide me while I was working on my project. They were constantly giving comments and ensured that I was always on track with my project. I’m thankful that I was given a chance to be part of Bashpole Software, Inc. and was able to work with a lot of amazing people.”

“This internship allowed me to gain valuable experience working as a full-stack developer. I made great connections and became more familiar with some commonly used software engineering tools. In addition, it was great to know what I was working on aligned with my values. Not only was I avoiding doing something unethical, but I was actively contributing to something good in the world.”

Kristen Maggs

2022, University of Washington

“My 13 week long stay at Bashpole was a humongous positive learning experience. Because this was my first internship, I did not understand the dynamics and flow of the workplace, but Bashpole’s tutorials and documents really helped fill me in on what I was missing. I went into the internship not fully understanding the command line, but left it having written multiple Bash scripts to automate tasks. You’ll learn how to interact with the cloud, using industry-level tools such as AWS EC2. Benjamin Ashpole and Iggy Isiorho were always available when I needed help, and excellently guided me up the rungs of understanding. Other than software related practice, I also learned a lot about how to keep my contact professional, which will undoubtedly serve me well in the future.”

Brandon Shien

2021, University of California, Santa Cruz

“The Bashpole experience was one of the most exciting moments I have ever had. As a member of the Software 2.A team, I gained a lot through this process. There are two things I enjoyed most: the project and the group meetings. I contributed to a project to help potential customers get the data they need and generate ads efficiently. Through this process, I had time to dive deep into Java coding, web development (Tomcat, Spring Boot, Lombok, and so on), and some NLP skills. I’m so glad that I could use my technical skills to contribute to this amazing company! Moreover, group meetings were really helpful to hone my team communication skills. A big shout out to Ben, Iggy, Bhargavi, and my teammates: all of them not only left great feedback and recommendations of my project but also patiently helped me when I got stuck. Before I left, I also wrote documentation to assist future interns understand the logic and start their work more easily. So, to whom it may concern, if you are passionate, want to learn new skills, and enjoy connecting with people, then don’t hesitate to apply! You won’t regret contributing to Bashpole, an attractive place that works hard for nonprofits. Keep in touch, Bashpole. I wish you all the best!”

“My internship at Bashpole was an amazing learning experience and very rewarding. As my first industry-level internship, I feel that the work given to me was challenging yet manageable. I was able to learn many new skills in Java, HTML, and CSS as well as working with new software like AWS EC2. Benjamin Ashpole was a great manager and mentor and always had time to help his interns with any issues they may have with their projects. Having a mentor who really cares about his interns was an especially welcoming quality of my internship. Looking back, I can truthfully say that this internship has prepared me well for any future software engineering jobs I may get.” 

Lisa Sun

2021, University of California, Davis

“Bashpole provided me with an invaluable SWE experience that can’t be found in college classes. From helping acquaint me with the work environment, to learning more about Virtual Environments, AWS, SQL, JSP, HTML and CSS for my full-stack LandingPage generation project, I was able to gain considerably from this internship. I was able to work with diverse and smart teams of interns that were great to get along with. I also had several mentors (Ben and Iggy) that gave me a ton of flexibility on projects, while also being super resourceful for any questions/problems I ran into during my internship. Overall, this is an internship I highly recommend to people going into SWE, as it gives incredible exposure to what the work environment truly looks like. Bashpole’s CEO Ben is fantastic person, worker, and mentor. I am incredibly grateful to both him and the rest of Bashpole for giving me this internship opportunity!” 

Owen Daley

2021, University of Washington

“I had a wonderful experience with Bashpole during the summer of 2021. Even though I had minimal experience in the real world, with Bashpole Software being my first SWE internship, I was able to get acquainted with the work environment seamlessly. In addition, all the interns working on the project were very helpful and were very willing to get me up to speed on the project, regardless of how much time it took them. This positive attitude greatly affected me as I made sure I behaved the same way, and I tried my best to ensure that interns who came in after me also had a great introductory period. I also learned a lot on the technical side as I worked as a full stack developer and used JSP, SQL, HTML, and CSS, to produce frontend and object-oriented backend for a landing page. I also had a great experience working with Iggy, who immensely helped me work through my individual project and was happy to meet with me multiple times if I needed any help troubleshooting my code. All in all, this internship helped me grow both as a person and as a software engineer. I am very grateful to Ben and his team for providing me with such a memorable experience!” 

Aravind Vengarai

2021, Georgia Tech

During my 6-months internship, I learned a lot of things not only related to software development (i.e. Database connection, Tomcat server, common web development programming languages…), but also some useful tips and habitats for how to become a professional person in my future career. From weekly meetings with Ben and other team members, everyone reports their updates and any concerns for the current stage of the project. If someone has specific issues with debugging or future tasks, they can always schedule another meeting with Iggy or other teammates. The scheduling method is also straightforward through Google Calendar. From my perspective, everyone is motivating and always be willing to help each other in the team, which is a really grateful environment for collaborations. Besides the team meeting, we also have all-hands meetings with other departments twice a week. During that meeting, we will get the training and discussion for common tips during the work, like email write-up formats, interview tips, coding tips, meeting preparation and so on. Finally, I appreciate Ben for providing me this position and all the experiences which I can not gain from college classes.”

Shiyue Rong

2021, University of California, Irvine

“My internship at Bashpole exposed me to a lot of new concepts and areas of the software engineering world that are not typically taught in university, and I faced many challenges that helped me grow as a professional and as an engineer. I learned so many valuable lessons and skills during my 9 months at Bashpole. I worked with Google services, MongoDB, databases, front-end development, back-end development, writing code, editing code, peer-editing code, and so much more. Additionally, despite the work being remote, I expanded my professional network along the way by meeting other employees and interns in all different departments and from all over the world. Everyone, especially Benjamin, is eager to help and to answer any questions you have. It is a great environment and company to improve and expand your skills, where you feel supported and encouraged to do so. It was truly a great experience!”

2021, New York University. Went on to be a Software Engineer Intern at Northrop Grumman.

“My 4 month experience at Bashpole was consistently positive. Throughout the internship, I had multiple opportunities to pick up new skills and learn how development in the software industry works. I liked the structure of the internship, which allowed me to be in regular communication with both Ben and the other interns. I also enjoyed being able to work with interns from departments other than software engineering, as it provided insight into every aspect of the industry. In an internship, one prioritizes the learning experience, and Bashpole certainly delivered.” 

Kanav Bhatnagar

2021, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“Throughout my internship, I gained a lot of practical experience and learned so much about the professional field of Software Engineering. Interns are given many opportunities to network among each other and meet other interns. You get the opportunity to meet with the CEO, Ben, 1-2 times a week to discuss the progress of your projects. Bashpole also has an interview process like no other; you will be given the opportunity to not just elaborate on your resume, but to truly show who you are and what your interests, and, if accepted, your projects will be tailored around what you are passionate about, creating an environment of hard-working, passionate individuals!” 

Joey Cain

2020, New York University. Went on to be a Credit Risk Representative at Santander Bank.

“I gained a lot of the experiences that I sought and improved my skills in different fields such as Java coding, NLP techniques, and web crawling. It was the first time for me to work in a company where people who are good in different fields can cooperate together in order to fulfill the same ultimate goal. The networking meetings enabled me to learn about things outside of my familiar fields and get a more broad view of what our company is working on. What’s more, it was also the first time for me to start with a project from the designing step. For the coursework and projects in schools, we have tutorials for projects and we can just follow that step by step. Differently, when I was assigned a task here, I only knew what the input was like and what types of output we were seeking. Thus I started with all the designations of the algorithm, such as what techniques to use, how to construct the algorithm, and how to improve the performance. During the process, I did research by myself, I got feedback from my supervisors, and I regarded this as a precious and meaningful experience.”

Yue Kuang

2020, University of Michigan

“Firstly, I want to express my thanks to Ben and all my teammates. Thanks for your help, and I learned a lot from all of you. I worked as a full-stack internship in the Promoter Motor team at Bashpole this summer. I have to say that this internship was a valuable experience for me. It was a great chance to combine what I have learned from school or books with a real-world project. Ben is a helpful manager and willing to talk and teach us from the very beginning, so that all the interns could know about the daily routine and start their work in a very short time. Also, Bachpole is a place that encourages networking with your peers; I made many friends here, and I believe we will be continually in contact in the future.”

Ruizi Zhang

2020, University of Pennsylvania

“I want to express my thanks for giving me the opportunity to intern at Bashpole this summer. I gained very valuable experience that I will use in the future. The two things I enjoyed most about the internship were the group work and the project itself. The ability to work in groups allowed me to gain additional mentorship and valuable coding experience from some more experienced programmers. I also enjoyed the project itself, with the valuable experience it gave me with being able to cut down the time it takes for Bashpole to reach out to potential partners. Overall, I really enjoyed my time at Bashpole this summer and wish you the best of luck in the future. Thank you again for giving me the experience this summer. We will be in touch again in the future.”

Joshua Wrobel

2020, University of Michigan. Went on to be a Supply Chain Engineer for Wareologie.

“During the 14-week internship, I am grateful to have had the opportunity Bashpole provided me to learn from a real business project and help non-profit clients regarding their need for advertisement promotion. I experienced a full stack project and learned development of frontend and backend frameworks, and knowledge of practical architecture of web development. With great advisory at Bashpole, not only did I enhance my technical skills, but also the capability of process management and formal documentation, which is beneficial for my future career goals. Plus, I am really thankful to my great team, especially my helpful teammate and networking opportunities with other interns throughout the summer. The Rule of Thumbs at Bashpole is also another shining point for experience exchange and teamwork.”

Victor Chen

2020, Georgia Tech. Went on to a Masters in Computational Science & Engineering.

“My three-month internship at Bashpole is a very valuable experience. As a member of the machine learning team, at first, I was nervous at whether I could handle all the tasks since I am a mathematics major, so Ben gave me enough time to do research into the field our team were working on and I gained confidence gradually. I combined my math knowledge into the application of algorithm and developed a model. With the help of my teammates, we did much data mining work and tested the model with this data. Throughout the internship, not only did I improved my understandings of machine learning algorithm, but I also found out the possibility to choose data analyst as a future career. From all the work I did, I had a deep insight into the application of math theories in solving real world problems, and I found this very attractive. I was very glad that I have the chance to work here.” 

Yuehe Wen

2020, U.C. Davis. Went on to a Consulting Internship for PwC, then to U.C. Berkeley Master of Science in Operations Research.

“This internship experience generally went very well for me. The best part of this experience was that I was exposed to many challenges and pushed to learn many new things, like web scraping, dealing with databases, and information extraction. The learning experience is very different from the learning experience in school. Since I was not systematically learning the knowledge but more problem-solving-aimed learning, I was very confused at first. Sometimes I had to look up for information in different websites and try out the solutions myself for hours to solve the problem. It was somewhat frustrating at first, but I got gradually used to it and found a pattern and rhythm of solving the problem more quickly. It is also from these experiences that I learned more about the fundamentals of problems – like the security issues of the database and the calculation of TF-IDF. Additionally, I think the company provides a good vibe of connecting and communicating with other people. I have talked with many other interns and learned a lot from their experience of learning and finding a job. Especially worth noting is that I made two really good friends – Xudan and Yuge during this internship. They are both really nice and willing to teach me many things. I am sure I will continue to be in touch with them and communicate with them in the future. My supervisor, Benjamin, is also very approachable and patient in answering my questions. There were a few times that I was stuck in the project, and he helped me get started in solving the problem by giving useful suggestions.”

Zhenxu (Egret) Liu

2020, New York University. Went on to be a Researcher at the Motivation Lab at NYU

“The software engineering internship at Bashpole Software is one of the most enjoyable activities I have participated in this summer. Although I had no previous experience in a real life software engineering setting, by harnessing the tools I was provided before the internship started and the people to help me anytime I need it, getting into the groove of things wasn’t really bad. I would suggest not only working from home, but go out and work from a coffee shop or any place that will be a change of setting. A change of setting always helps refresh the mind. There would be days that you would not want to get out of bed early. But when you do, I will love every moment of solving real life problems that would make an impact on the company’s future directly. Another thing I liked about this experience was the projects. The project selection consisted of fun but important projects, and solving these problems was very enjoyable. I would recommend this internship to anyone who is looking for a summer internship that will help develop them as an engineer.” 

Samuel Iwu

2019, Butler University. Went on to be an Information Technology Intern at Bone Dry.

I was able to learn so much from both my peers as well as my supervisor, Ben, who took great liberty to provide me with a wealth of knowledge and insight that I know I will be able to use in my endeavors within my future career. I was able to take on so many fun, interesting, and captivating projects that allowed me to utilize the things I had learned, from applying for and securing grants for local nonprofits to make positive change for the broader community to being able to brainstorm and conceptualize new and innovative ways we can help nonprofits. During my time here, I made professional accomplishments that motivated me to excel further in my craft and truly made me feel proud in what I was doing.

“Being an intern with Bashpole Software turned out to be everything I needed and nothing I expected. I needed a professional environment to develop my skills as a technical writer. I never expected to learn so much about the challenges to US nonprofits and the vast potential of online advertising to support their great works. I also never expected to get a fundamentals course in artificial intelligence! Another benefit to my professional development had to do with the opportunity to mentor and coach younger professionals, which is a type of fulfillment we often overlook as we progress through our careers. That said, I was also glad to be able to spend most of my time focused on the writing process at a less stressful pace than I have been used to. This made more room for thoughtful reflection and better quality in my output. I was glad to be able to stand back from the R&D proposal writing process, analyze it, break it down, and organize it into phases, steps, and a methodology that will hopefully serve Bashpole as a training tool. That tool should in turn help future interns achieve the lasting impacts they seek in their careers. Working on projects for government R&D proposal writing & technical writing proved to be an interesting, challenging and rewarding experience that I am sure will serve me well in my career.”

How Internship Seasons Work: for internships, an experience can be performed over the summer, fall/winter, or winter/spring. Your participation can follow the timeline (semesters/trimesters/quarters) your college follows. Generally, a full-time internship lasts for at least 3 months, and a part-time internship lasts for 6 months. Also, Promoter Motor understands that productivity does not always occur around the typical nine-to-five schedule. We encourage interns to divide the required worktime hours in ways that are best suited to your individual needs and psychology.
