Insert your face here. FasterSkier is seeking an intern for the winter!

FasterSkier is seeking an intern to join our team for the 2016/2017 winter season (December-April). Essentially, we’re looking for an eager go-getter with an up-for-anything attitude and high level of interest in cross-country skiing.

This person will assist our staff with daily race reporting, especially on World Cup race days (cross-country, nordic combined and biathlon), as well as larger projects. Schedule can be relatively flexible, but we expect our interns to assist with weekend race reporting whenever possible, devoting a few hours on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday each week to assignments like transcriptions, research, interviews, blogs, or photo galleries. Mid-week assignments are part of an intern’s responsibility as well.

This position is part time and unpaid with potential for equipment perks and a larger role within our team.

  • Must possess strong writing skills and well-developed communication skills, and the ability to work independently and self-manage daily tasks.
  • Will assist with interviewing athletes and coaches, transcribing fellow reporters’ interviews, and posting directly to the website (i.e. photo galleries, press releases).
  • Must be proficient with computers and social media, and have a basic understanding of WordPress or an ability to learn quickly.
  • Should be open to doing behind-the-scenes work and work in a fast-paced team setting

Interested applicants should email with a resume and writing sample.
