Meet the Symba Slate: The only job board dedicated to paid remote internships
By Mitra LeBuhn

Symba originated as a social impact project with late congressman John Lewis, and the value to create more equitable pathways to the workforce remains at the core of what we do. As a B2B SaaS company, Symba supports internships in two ways.
Our primary service, Symba’s Management Platform, is a software that helps businesses easily manage interns, while our Matching Solution works to match candidates to paid remote internships. Despite this, we felt connecting internship seekers solely to our customers was not enough. Our solution? The Symba Slate, a platform for which we manually aggregate available internship opportunities and advocate for programs that both pay their interns and embrace remote work.
The Symba Slate is Symba’s job board that promotes only paid and remote internship opportunities. Intern candidates that sign up for Symba’s community gain access to the Symba Slate, as well as the Symba Assembly, our newsletter sharing Symba Certified opportunities and resources to support internship seekers and current interns. On the job board, opportunities marked with a “Symba Certified” blue star represent roles for which Symba is reviewing candidates. These posts link to challenges where anyone can apply for internship positions with Symba partner companies. With Symba as a bridge, we work to increase communication and transparency for applicants and reduce the often stressful nature of application processes. We’re on a mission to open up the workforce, on a global scale. Listings marked with a green checkmark highlight opportunities that are available to members of our community based outside of the United States. We created the Symba Slate to bring paid remote internship opportunities to one place and make it easier for internship seekers to find and apply for programs.
At Symba we believe that work deserves pay. That’s why we pledge to only share and promote paid remote internship opportunities. We see that there is disproportionate access to the workforce and that interns’ rights are sometimes overlooked. We are changing that narrative. The Symba Slate opens professional growth opportunities to everyone, regardless of location or ability to relocate, and only promotes internships where work is rewarded.
Now, we invite you to join the Symba community and leverage the Symba Slate!
