Genius will be launching a fully remote internship program for the 2021 Summer season. This structured, 8-week program (June 21- August 13) will introduce rising college juniors, seniors and recent graduates to all facets of working for a company like Genius. Each intern will be offered a chance to work closely with different departments throughout the company and will have the opportunity to learn, grow, and experience what it means to work here. 

Genius is looking for a Social Media/Editorial intern to work on a variety of projects this summer. If your passion is reporting on and contextualizing music stories in smart and creative ways then this could be the right internship for you.

Through our original content, technology, and live & virtual experiences, Genius spotlights the artists who are shaping music culture across every genre and musical discipline, sharing the stories behind their creativity and craft in their own words with over 105M+ people each month on and everywhere music fans connect across the internet.
