We are focused on building cool new things. However, we understand that money is important — critical, some would say — to our ability to do that. Not only that, it’s possible to build cool… new… business things. What if you were an alien who had no knowledge of the way web advertising works. What would you come up with? Is there such a thing as an advertising mechanism that customers don’t loathe?
The Outline is looking for a smart, ambitious, fun revenue intern who is passionate about the business of media/news and who wants to dig in with us as we build a truly modern media company from the ground up.
Must have an extreme interest in online media and advertising (and a curiosity about other media revenue streams). A hard-working, can-do attitude and the eagerness to learn anything and everything is essential. Major plus if you have design sensibility and can work in applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, or InDesign. Any past experience with ads is great. Previous, client-facing experience of any kind is good. We also love people who come from journalism/storytelling backgrounds, but who who are really passionate about finding new and innovative ways to monetize media. Also, a sense of humor is a major plus.
