Emerging Businesses, It’s not what you think about when you think of Bose. How would you like to start with a blank sheet of paper and help shape future possibilities for Bose? How would you like to bring your new ideas to one of the most successful and well-known technology companies in the world, helping us refine emerging businesses concepts and marketing approaches?.
With nearly 50 years of success in audio, Bose is a global leader in consumer and professional audio solutions, and strives to provide compelling experiences for our customers, all the way from their first interaction with an ad or a salesperson through the moment they fire up their favorite song on their favorite new speaker, or headphones, or home theater system. Now we’re looking to weave emerging businesses into our customer interactions wherever we can improve our customers’ experience.
We are looking for an experienced contributor to join us as a summer MBA intern, to work at the “fuzzy front-end” to help define the future of Bose’s Emerging Businesses Division. If you would thrive on creating compelling data-informed arguments to drive us towards emerging technologies, new markets and greater innovation, this could be the right job for you.
You have an affinity for gadgets and technology, and would enjoy the opportunity to evaluate an emerging technology or market force that could impact our product strategy. Your abundant self-motivation, creativity, intellectual curiosity, capacity to juggle conflicting priorities, and ability to see clearly in the midst of uncertainty will be your best allies.
Your ultimate responsibility will be to advise and assist the Emerging Businesses Team.You will become the expert on this new technology or market force and write a compelling whitepaper as output -- what should we do, when should we do it, and how will we know when to change the plan. You are able to ply a combination of market data, consumer data, in-depth analysis and synthesis, and your own good instincts to make solid recommendations to stakeholders. Your work will influence category strategy and product features. Time permitting, you might also get to participate in driving new product ideas, bolstering our competitive knowledge base, or performing other business analysis and insight projects for which your unique talents might qualify you.
In the past, you may have had experience in product management, strategy, consulting, market research, engineering, or software development. Ideally, you will have had experience in several of those disciplines. At Bose you will work most closely with product marketing, engineering, research, and consumer research. From time to time, you also may support or lead new-product business development initiatives, where you will work closely with outside companies.
We are looking for someone to help us drive to future continued growth. Is this you?
