In addition, interns will connect to our company culture through community outreach projects, engage with our employee resource groups and be able to develop their professional skills and business acumen through frequent exposure to senior leadership, cutting-edge technology, groundbreaking projects, and a network of mentors and fellow interns.

The Copywriting Team operates within the larger Creative Team in the Brand and Marketing department alongside designers, videographers, UX designers, project managers and in coordination with campaign, product and other strategic stakeholders. We help craft, refine and test copy, content and messaging for our website, advertising, marketing emails, paid social media, brand guidelines, videos, product assets, infographics case studies and much more.
As a team seeking next-level creative ideas and messaging for our technology brand, we’re looking for someone excited by language and who has an interest in marketing and advertising, demonstrated skill or experience in a creative writing discipline and coursework or a major geared towards marketing, advertising, psychology or writing (or relevant other comparable activities demonstrating strong interest and knowledge).
