Vox Media’s Storytelling Studio is looking for a news design intern

Help us design, code, and tell great stories!

The Storytelling Studio is looking for a student to join us in New York or DC for the summer to tell engaging stories across all platforms.

We are a team of designers, journalists, and engineers tasked with making good internet. We work with all of Vox Media’s eight brands on stories like Sarah Kliff’s look at how Obamacare enrollees are getting ready for repeal or Curbed’s 10 Streets that define America. We also work on projects like Verge’s gadget messaging bot and this Final Fantasy 7-inspired trivia game.

This year we’re focusing on visual, audio, and data storytelling across all platforms, and we’re looking for the right intern to help us do it!

Our new teammate is

  • Someone who loves collaboration. We need an intern who can collaborate closely with reporters, editors, and Studio teammates to tell engaging stories.
  • Someone who can design new storytelling experiences. We’re looking for an intern who can produce wireframes and design mockups, and share their work early and often.
  • Someone who can prototype their ideas. We need an intern who can build story experiences using HTML and CSS. We’re looking for someone who is excited to to learn new things.
  • Someone who loves the challenge of breaking news. We’re searching for someone who is comfortable working on short news deadlines.

You will learn

  • How stories get made. You’ll be a part of our process from ideation to retrospective.
  • How design, code, photography, graphics, data, text come together. You’ll be working with professionals from all these backgrounds, so there is space for you to strengthen your understanding of any (or all!) of these languages.
  • How it takes a village to make internet. It’s not all puppy gifs and rainbows. Collaborations under time constraints can get well, kinda hard. But that’s where communication and trust works in our favor.
