If sport grabs your attention, then we want yours. If sport is all you know, we want to know you! Zeven aspires to be the ultimate platform for the young and the ambitious to prepare them for the real world.

In an ideal world, we would like to give you a crash course about the world of Zeven – right from design to development to marketing to finance!

Since it's not an ideal world, you may not get to explore everything but we would want you to get into sponge mode and absorb everything that comes your way! Show us what you can bring to the table!

Take a leap with the Zeven Try-Outs for an internship!

Avail one of the 3 positions that will open up every 12 weeks if you convince us you're Mad-About-Sport.

Show us your wacky short video, a collection of madcap pictures, that quirky app you developed, or write a Tolstoyesque 10,000-page novel even to tell us why you think you are a great catch! There's just one catch: be zany!

If you have been on this planet (or any other for that matter) for anything between 18 and 24 years, send us your entries to [email protected]

Zeven will assign a Coach/Mentor to you who will assign you a project depending on what suits the both of us. The intention is to have a healthy symbiotic relationship which will enrich both parties. Speaking of parties, we do have our share of them!

It's gonna be a 12-week internship but we are not hung up about it. We are flexible about our stand here. But you'll find it worth your while.

And to make it even more worthy of your efforts there’ll be a stipend involved too! Make hay while the sun shines, as they say.

We play hard and fair!

If we are well and truly impressed, then we might not let you go!

This is because you'll get a chance to be a permanent member of Team Zeven so you could continue the work you would have enjoyed.

Don't worry, you'll get to go home every day.
