About the job

FiveThirtyEight is an award-winning site focused on providing data-driven journalism in sports, politics, and science. FiveThirtyEight was founded by Nate Silver. We’re looking for a current student or recent graduate who can work with our video and social teams during the summer of 2022. Someone who is enthusiastic about accuracy, clarity, video production and storytelling; who is adept at building and cultivating communities on platforms like TikTok or Instagram; and is interested in sharing our wonky, data-driven approach to sports and political journalism with those audiences.

Responsibilities :

A day in the life…

The intern’s main role will be to build up FiveThirtEight’s video presence, engagement and following on social platforms. This means:

  • Pitching and executing short social videos while developing and refining FiveThirtyEight’s cross-platform voice and tone
  • Should they have interest, the intern might narrate or host videos.
  • Help with general video audience strategy, and work with our art director and video journalists to repurpose existing assets for distribution on our website and other platforms, including Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
  • The social/video intern will report to the senior editor for social and audience and the senior video producer, but will also have the opportunity to work with reporters across the newsroom.

Basic Qualifications :

What You Bring To The Role…


  • Journalism experience (whether from a journalism class, school paper, job or internship) is a must
  • Some experience reporting on politics (But “politics” doesn’t just mean electoral politics. It could mean you have experience reporting on policy issues, social movements, how polarization was affecting your community, or something else. Interpret it broadly, because we will too!)
  • A solid understanding of U.S. politics, and a prolific consumption of news
  • Enthusiasm for FiveThirtyEight and the kind of journalism we create
  • Demonstrated experience creating compelling social videos
  • Some experience with Adobe Premiere. Applicants should be able to cut clips and add music.
  • Experience writing scripts and storyboarding
  • Experience behind a camera (a smartphone camera counts)
  • And if you don’t check every box, that’s OK. Please apply!

Preferred Qualifications:


  • Experience writing social copy
  • Experiencing using WordPress or a similar CMS to publish articles
  • Experience in front of the camera (a smartphone camera counts)

Additional Information :

Submit cover letter, resume and links to three social video you’ve produced (links on your resume or cover letter). They can be personal projects and don’t necessarily need to be journalistic. We are most interested in seeing your ability to tell compelling stories, regardless of the medium.
