Website Developer - Website & Content
Any Major, Any Year
Who We Are
Genesis enables UT Austin student innovators and leaders to reach their greatest potential by providing them with mentorship, startup capital, and real-world investment experience. We have raised over $1.8M to achieve this mission and are growing our team in order to multiply our impact on the UT entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Your Team - Website & Database
The Website & Content team is responsible for delivering Genesis’ online persona. When someone new to Genesis lands on our website, blog or other social media, it’s critical that these outlets provide an amazing first impression. The Website & Content team is responsible for making sure all Genesis’ efforts are well represented online from our signature events to our portfolio companies.
Genesis is structured to take advantage of the 80/20 rule, whereby 20% of each team member’s time is spent outside of their assigned project area on initiatives that both are both high impact and of personal interest to the team member. In other words, you’ll also have 20% of your time to explore new projects within Genesis.
