Technology Intern, Spring 2018


In 1998 we started our first website,, with a simple premise: people should have access to the top special occasion dresses and they should be able to shop for them online.

Fast forward to 2017 and Occasion Brands has become the leading special occasion retailer online with two brands - PromGirl and SimplyDresses. We are growing and have plans to introduce new special occasion stores online under the Occasion Brands umbrella. We’re also bringing the PromGirl experience offline as we make preparations to open up a pop-up store in 2018.

The Occasion Brands Technology Team is seeking an intern for the Spring 2018 semester. The Technology Intern will gain experience in software development, mobile usability, responsive design, and coding. As a member of our nimble team you will have an immediate impact on our business and see your ideas comes to life and your contributions put to immediate use. If you are an independent, creative problem solver and like to laugh, Occasion Brands is the place for you.
