America is in the midst of a loneliness epidemic. At Sidekick, our goal is to help.
As an early-stage start-up, we're building an app that would connect college students (and other young adults) based on their shared hobbies and interests. Think Tinder, but for friendships. Need a partner for rock-climbing? Someone to go to the Beyonce concert with? Sidekick will help you find similar people online so you can go meet offline, in the real world. Because when we share an adventure, we can't help but become friends.
Although we're based primarily on the West Coast, our management team is making full use of Zoom and remote-work tools. Therefore, interns can work from wherever they prefer. We're completely flexible about starting and ending dates as well as about work hours. Our concern is results and contributions, not face time. What matters most is that we share a mission of re-imagining how Americans use social media.
