We’re Hiring 2 Spring Interns

Want to work in a newsroom that combines reporting, writing, data analysis, computer science and a general sense of irreverence? FiveThirtyEight is hiring college students or recent graduates to work as paid interns in our New York office this spring in two positions:

  1. Politics data reporter. This intern will help our politics team as it ramps up coverage of the 2020 election. The internship will be a mix of writing, reporting, research, data-mining and fact-checking.
  2. Video/motion graphics. This intern will conceive and research topics, as well as animate, edit and produce videos for our site and social media distribution. Basic animation or motion graphic skills with some experience shooting and editing video is preferred.

Internships typically run from January to May, and interns can work up to 40 hours per week, but we can work around your class schedule. Both interns will work at the center of a world-class, collaborative newsroom and will have the opportunity to contribute bylined work to the site.
