Description

About Us
The New York Times is seeking inventive and motivated interns to join the Wirecutter group. In this role, you will learn the ins and outs of our growing, thriving editorial organization and collaborate with different teams to understand and participate in our process.

About our Team
Wirecutter helps people buy the right things for the way they want to live. The site was founded by journalists in September 2011 and was acquired by The New York Times Company in October 2016. Our recommendations are made through vigorous reporting, interviewing, and testing by teams of veteran journalists, scientists, and researchers. Consider us a best-of list for everyday things; a curated gallery filled with only interesting, useful objects; a thank-you note to the designers and engineers who create the stuff that makes our lives better; a geeky friend with next-level research skills who tests everything they buy so you don’t have to. The point is to make buying great gear quickly easier so you can get on with living your life.
We pride ourselves on following rigorous journalistic standards and ethics, and we maintain editorial independence from our business operations. Our recommendations are always made entirely by our editorial team without input from our revenue team, and our writers and editors are never made aware of any business relationships. Wirecutter is mission driven and reader supported; learn more about us here.

Report to the associate managing editor as an intern within our 100+ person editorial team. You will contribute to and co-coordinate editorial events and initiatives (everything from deal events like our Prime Day coverage to curating our homepage).
