Culture & Perks


At LAVA SURF, we work hard but don’t take ourselves too seriously; we also listen to and encourage your input and insights. In the office we listen to music, watch the occasional YouTube video, and play a round of Catch Phrase. And you know what the best part of our office is? The snack room—which you will have unlimited access to. We will also occasionally bring in lunch (Sweeto Burrito anyone?).


Important Stuff


Lastly, at the end of the internship our Executive Team will write you a wicked-awesome letter of recommendation that will knock the socks off of a future employer or a grad school admissions counselor.


While this is an unpaid internship, we expect it to be highly competitive due to the unique roll we allow students to play within our company. We offer real world professional experience and many of our interns stay to fill meaningful part/or full time positions at Lava Surf.
