We've recently launched a new curation and commenting app called NewsPicks. The app is hugely popular in Japan, and is one of the country's most-successful digital-media ventures. Our version of the app (available for iPhones in the app store) is for English-speaking audiences. We're looking for a couple of smart, inquisitive and self-directed interns to help build our community of so-called Pro Pickers—these are the influencers that power much of the commentary on the app.
Please send a resume, work samples, and a short note highlighting your interests/passions in media, to Ernie Sander (firstname.lastname@example.org). Put "NewsPicks Internship" in the subject line.
