OZY is looking for a curious, out-of-the-box editorial intern to join our growing team for a 10-week, paid internship. Are you a great storyteller eager to work in a fast-paced newsroom? At OZY, you will break the mold, uncovering new global trends, and profiling incredible people who are impacting businesses, industries and societies worldwide.

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE DOING:
- Pitch, research, report and write eye-catching features
- Collaborate with the photo, video, podcast, design and marketing teams
- Collaborate with our multidisciplinary intern team on a special project
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
- 1+ years of journalism and writing experience
- Intense curiosity about the world
- Interest in the future of digital journalism
- Journalism degree a plus but not necessary
- 3 to 6 writing samples
- Ability to work out of our HQ in Mountain View, Calif.
