Editorial & Social Media Internship: Summer 2016

RoomZoom matches highly compatible roommates based on a unique algorithm we wrote. It’s like Match or OK Cupid for finding roommates; a web app to use instead of Craigslist because Craigslist stinks. You will join a young, highly energetic team for a high-impact internship focused on community building and defining the editorial voice of our news component,


  1. 1)  News Editor: You will report, write and edit 1-3 high-quality articles for RoomZoom’s news site, per week. Post subject matter will vary from photo essays of great apartments, interviews with cool people, neighborhood guides, profiles for our “cool jobs” section, etc. Your ideas and input are encouraged.

  2. 2)  For each story we post on, your own and stories by others, you will create posts across RoomZoom’s three main social accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. You will work closely with our Director of Marketing and the CEO to hone the right voice and use analytics to see what’s most effective. Again, your input is encouraged.

Schedule & Time Commitment

Start Date: June 1st, 2016 Completion: Sept 1st, 2016

Experience & Compensation

Full time. In total expect to spend at least 20-30 hours in our office throughout the week and 10-20 hours reporting in the field.

Your voice will be heard and your good ideas will be implemented. Diving into the world of a fast-paced, high-growth startup will give you essential skills in this type of environment. You will become part of the RoomZoom core team and work directly with the founder. We will happily sign for any credits, write recommendation letters. A $1,500 stipend paid in three $500 increments is included.
