Media-Related Internship

Media Organization: PUNCH

Company Description

We’re a James Beard Award-winning online magazine in collaboration with Ten Speed Press focused on narrative journalism—both written and visual—about wine, spirits, beer and cocktails.

Our goal is to capture the ethos that’s driving drinks forward: the connection of beverage to tradition and place, the passion to innovate and yes—fun. We also believe that the wine, cocktail, beer and spirits worlds share more in common than they probably realize. We want to bring them together and shine a light on the many places where their values are entwined.

Our office in Bushwick is small and collaborative — we’ll expect you to stay on top of what’s going on in the world of drinks and will be picking your brain for ideas regularly.

Our dream candidate is extremely organized, adaptable and resourceful — an individual who excels in a start-up environment and takes ownership of their projects. Experience with Facebook Business Manager, Hootsuite, Photoshop and InDesign is a plus.
