Our Mission:

  • Connect tech leaders across the state. The Alliance typically hosts six networking receptions each year in communities like Bozeman, Missoula, and Kalispell. We currently conduct online webinars and virtual events.

  • Promote Montana’s strong high tech and manufacturing sector. The Alliance serves as a voice for high tech, shining a light on the success of our member firms and increasing the visibility and influence of Montana as a growing tech hub
    .
  • Accelerate growth through our online jobs portal. The number one barrier to growth for member companies is finding enough talented workers. The Alliance is a matchmaker, helping people find good jobs in Montana that allow them to enjoy our beautiful state and high quality of life.

Benefits:

  • Doing meaningful work – the intern will directly impact essential activities.
  • Using your strengths – tasks vary, and duties can be tailored to your interests.
  • Expanding your career prospects – work with founders and CEOs of Montana’s leading high-tech and manufacturing firms, and add significant experience to your resume.

Responsibilities:

The Billing and Membership Coordinator will partner with the executive director, communications director, and intern team on a variety of tasks in support of the day-to-day operations of the Montana High Tech Business Alliance. Supervisors will provide training, resources, and regular feedback to ensure assigned work can be completed successfully.

Responsibilities may include:

Accounts Receivable:

  • Manage MHTBA member billing schedules.
  • Send invoices, reminders, and other communications.
  • Keep member billing data up to date using GrowthZone management software.

GrowthZone Member Management:

  • Process new member applications and keep records up to date.

Who we’re looking for:

The Montana High Tech Business Alliance is looking for an essential team member who shares our passion for our mission and whose strengths and interests are a good fit for this role. High-tech moves quickly and our staff is small, so the right person for this job can hustle and wear multiple hats. We’re looking for someone who will take initiative. If you don’t know exactly how to do something or run into a roadblock, you jump in and figure it out.

The ideal candidate is conscientious about details and will deliver high-quality work on time. You love to learn, and are excited to keep up with an industry that’s always changing. You communicate professionally and believe in great customer service, whether you’re helping a leader in a global software company or a student launching an app in their dorm room. 

How to Apply: Please submit resume, cover letter, and three professional references to Christina Henderson, director@mthightech.org.
