Content Creator Intern

Location: Remote or Cape Town, South Africa

About the role

HotBot is a smart energy device that is changing the way we use electricity. HotBot connects to your geyser to train it to use less energy and allows you to control it from anywhere on your phone. But unlike a traditional geyser timer, HotBot not only saves you money, it uses AI to enable geysers to take turns, creating the most efficient heating schedule. So, together with all other HotBots, users can help fix load shedding by shifting the load out of peak times for a more balanced and healthy grid. 

The Content Creator Intern will work at the epicenter of this message, communicating it to our audience via our social media platforms.

The Content Creator Intern will contribute in the following areas with the purpose of resonating with our audiences:

  • Investigate audience knowledge gaps and conceptualise ways to use design to overcome them;
  • Engage with user comments as research for new content; 
  • Develop content calendar based on a narrative-based strategy;
  • Create social media content to communicate our mission and the benefit of HotBot to the community;
  • Support Product team to optimise design assets to be used across various platforms

This internship can either be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa or remotely in a location of your choice. Interns are targeted to earn R1500-R2,000 per week.
