Chris Pleasance ’21
This summer I worked for a start-up sports product company called KidRunner in Bend, OR. I lived at home and was able to work with the KidRunner team both remotely and in-person. During my time as an intern, KidRunner was going through a new round of capital raising and product engineering to release a next-gen product in Spring of 2021. I served as a jack of all trades to help their small team with these large tasks, but my main job was assisting with the content marketing efforts. I produced videos for various marketing purposes, guided social media and advertising strategy, provided input on eCommerce updates, and created a spreadsheet dashboard to assist our design team to comply with manufacturing safety standards. I gained experience with various digital marketing platforms, such as Facebook Business Manager and Google AdWords, and I got exposed to the fast-paced loosely organized reality of a start-up.
