At SCVNGR’s LevelUP, fast pace and responsibilities part of experience

Just one day after Kevin Hylant landed a sales internship at Boston start-up SCVNGR last summer, he was tapped to join a team in Philadelphia. He soon learned that the team, charged with helping to launch the company’s new LevelUp mobile payment app, consisted of him and one other intern.

The pair were soon out on their own, developing the Philadelphia territory, traveling to stores, and setting up equipment that lets merchants accept payments via mobile phone. By the time he finished his internship, he had used his experiences to write the company manual on how to identify stores, interact with merchants, and install equipment.
