Inverse is seeking a Business Development Fellow to join our audience development team. Working out of our office in Soho, the three-month-long paid fellowship will assist the social media and editorial teams in developing social media and content partnerships, performing outreach for special features and showcase content/video series, and communicating Inverse’s brand message to new audiences.
Applicants should have a passion for great content and storytelling, along with an interest in science, technology, innovation, comics, and/or geek culture. We’re looking for an avid communicator who is hyper organized and loves developing relationships. You must enjoy writing persuasive and engaging emails and crafting great headlines. This is an ideal position for someone who is looking to pursue a career in public relations, business development, audience development, or marketing. While the Business Development Fellow will work closely with the editorial team, this is not an editorial position and writing articles is not a responsibility of the job.
This is a great opportunity to work with a passionate team at a growing start-up, while learning the ins and outs of audience development in digital publishing.Inverse is a technology-driven media company covering the future of how we live, work, and enjoy ourselves for an audience of forward-looking millennial curiosity-seekers. Through original reporting, news coverage, opinion, and analysis, Inverse provides its audience with a look ahead into everything from space travel, to the future of work and relationships, to what show they should be binge watching next.
