Animalz is a content marketing agency that strives to create the best content on the web. We help companies grow by creating high quality, long-form pieces that their audience loves.

We’re a fully remote organization with team members scattered around the world. We have an eclectic team of marketers, scientists, journalists, operations folks, and more.

About this role:

Our purpose is to make the internet a more helpful place. We know that cutting edge content is the product of a diverse group of people, perspectives, beliefs and backgrounds working together. With that in mind, we are searching for current students, recent graduates, or aspiring content marketers interested in paid, part-time content marketing internships.

Through this program you will learn by doing, learn through research, and learn by working with the best practitioners. Ideal interns will have interest in two areas: writing high quality long-form (~1,500 word) content, and learning how to create content strategies. The length and depth of your experience can vary, and our team works closely with all interns to grow their skills in these areas long-term.

Our goal is to make the content marketing industry more diverse and brilliant, therefore we are specifically interested in bringing on interns from underrepresented groups for this opportunity, including (but in no way limited to) Black, Latinx, Native/indigenous American, Asian, veteran, disabled, transgender, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ individuals. If you feel comfortable doing so, we encourage you to self-identify on the EEOC portion of your application; however, you are in no way required to do this and we will consider every application equally without viewing the answers to these questions.

This is the first time we're running this internship program, so we're looking for people who are open to giving feedback to help us continuously improve for future cohorts. We encourage everyone who's interested to submit an application, and we'll be in touch if we think there's a potential fit.

Please note: This is a temporary internship that does not include benefits. There will be opportunities for successful interns to discuss full time work post internship. If you have any questions about this before you apply, please reach out using the email address at the bottom of this job description.
