Careers

Company Overview


Feedstyle aggregates Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and RSS feeds published by the college campus community and filters them into categories like: Sports, Music, Culture, Job-Board, Shopping, etc. Students can then customize what populates on their feed by turning on/off authors based on their interests. With Feedstyle, students stop missing events, are informed about the news/happenings that interest them most, and have a more engaging and personalized resource for discovering your campus.


Feedstyle won the Carolina Challenge (a startup competition) back in April and is looking to launch a beta test of our app and website later this fall at UNC. We think it's an excellent time and opportunity for a few student interns to come on board and get internship experience with a startup that's moving into an exciting operational phase with new technology.
