Innovation Intern - Editorial

Raleigh, NC Intern/Co-op
Posted on August 3, 2017

McClatchy’s Raleigh-based innovation team is hiring an intern for the fall, starting in August. The 10-20 hour per week paid position is available to a high school graduate or equivalent with experience in one or more of the following areas:


  • Writing and reporting in Spanish
  • Videography and photography
  • Grassroots community organizing
  • Design-thinking and entrepreneurship


Our team works with McClatchy markets all over the U.S., from Sacramento to Miami, to design the future of local journalism. We also partner with Matter, a media-focused startup accelerator co-located in New York City and San Francisco.



The innovation team develops and tests prototypes in Raleigh using the principles of human-centered design. This position will work as an editorial project lead for an early-stage Spanish-language media prototype — translating McClatchy reporting into Spanish, writing and producing original content in Spanish, and shaping the overall direction of the project.



  • Bilingual in Spanish and English. Complete Spanish and English fluency and ability to produce compelling, relevant content in Spanish is crucial for this role.
  • Action-oriented. This position will require an entrepreneurial attitude and willingness to get out of the office and talk to community members.
  • Self-driven. Our team is small and fast-moving. Interns are encouraged to shape the direction of our prototypes and test their ideas quickly.



To apply, please fill out the following online form and send your resume and/or links to an online portfolio to Abby Reimer by August 15.
