Nerve.com seeks an Astute Product Development Intern (Paid) (SoHo)
Nerve.com is looking for an astute and technically inclined (CS grads preferred) Product Development Intern to work with our Product and Development teams to help create an exciting new social media related product.
We are an award-winning web site producing original content covering the lives and interests of culturally obsessed men and women in their 20s and 30s. Nerve celebrates the sexiness, humor, and challenges of being single with its true stories, smart pop culture coverage, blogs, and advice. We're home to about 1.5 million monthly readers.
If you're smart, versatile, thrive on pop culture, love to be in the scene and have the talent to match, then we want you in our Soho loft. We're looking for candidates with sharp analytical skills, an aptitude for problem solving and close attention to detail. You should know your way around the Internet and its technologies, and be comfortable doing some research when you don’t know how to do something.
• Do you have experience developing for the web with server side web languages such as PHP, Ruby, Node, etc.?
• Do you have experience with relational databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, etc.?
• Do you have experience with CMS technologies (especially Drupal)?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we’d love to hear from you.
In addition to coding, you might work on developing feature requirements, wireframes, researching APIs, testing and collecting user feedback.
We're flexible with student schedules, but three to five days a week is what we are asking. Pay is about $600-$1000 month and internships generally last for 3 months. Most importantly this is a chance to learn and have fun doing something you love. Your opinions will be heard and valued, and you have the opportunity to contribute to something really big in the making. Sound great? Then tell us about you with a resume and a cover letter that tells us why you would like to do this. The text of your cover letter should to be in the body of the email and not as an attachment, otherwise it may not get read.
