This role is perfect for a smart, motivated, detail-oriented candidate looking to gain experience in a high-growth start-up. You’ll work directly with the editorial team to ensure everything we publish is easy to understand and has a consistent tone

London · 3 months (with potential for a full-time offer)

As an editorial intern, you’ll work closely with our editorial team, analysts, and audio producers to make sure everything we publish has a consistent tone of voice, is easy to understand, and is conversational.

You’ll also get involved with the processes that allow our team to produce world-class content each and every day, and do work that involves our engineering, sales, and community teams.

This role has the potential to lead to a full-time position.
