Company Overview

Our mission is to power the next generation of media companies by empowering and connecting freelancers and publishers in exciting new ways.

We created Contently because we saw the world of publishing changing around us. In the midst of the disruption of traditional journalism, digital advertising and social media, the world economy was in a slump, causing throngs of talented journalists and creative storytellers to strike out on their own as freelancers – and not necessarily by choice.

At the same time, nontraditional publishers are rising – brands, nonprofits, and lean new media companies – all of which need talent and efficient ways to manage, measure, and achieve business results with content.

Our passion lies in helping those freelancers succeed, and in doing so allowing anyone to become a publisher. No longer are we bound by so-called rules of who can be a publisher and who can't. The Internet changed that. At Contently, we're devoting our lives to leveling the playing field for the hungry and talented creators and publishers out there. And we love every minute of it.

Our Mantra: Be Awesome.
In everything we do, we ask ourselves, " Is this awesome? " From product to editorial to customer service, our goal is to always answer "Yes."

Description

The intern will report to our Director of Community, and will be responsible for day-to-day tasks as well as longer-term initiatives.

Day to day includes monitoring and updating social media sites, helping with client support over email, screening publications that are submitted to our database, and generally assisting the Director. Longer-term projects include research and event planning. You'll be involved in ongoing blog research and event management as well.

Free drinks and snacks, and a nonstop flow of hilarious Internet nonsense in the chat room at Contently's new office in SoHo.
