MPLS.TV – Digital Intern


Overview: MPLS.TV is a web-based platform dedicated to showcasing Minneapolis culture and creativity to Minneapolis and beyond.

We are looking for a digital intern who is familiar with virtually all digital media platforms and who is an interactive generalist. This individual must be both knowledgeable about online development and eager to contribute creativity and professionalism to MPLS.TV.

This position is NOT YOUR TYPICAL INTERNSHIP. We believe in an environment where everyone has the opportunity to present and implement new ideas. You will be expected to make major strategic and tactical decisions. We are looking for a motivated self-starter, so if you’re looking for an internship where you will be assigned petty tasks or sit behind a computer screen mining data all day, MPLS.TV is not for you! This is a rare opportunity to work with a young, startup company.

What you have:

  • Experience with web development (must know HTML and knowledge of WordPress is a major plus)
  • Interest in startup business development/entrepreneurship
  • The rights to say you’re a Digital native – familiar with all social media sites, particularly Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, and Instagram
  • Ability to manage own projects from start to finish
  • Design and Photoshop skills are a major plus
  • Must love tacos


What you’ll be doing:
  • Editing content on the MPLS.TV website.
  • Managing the scheduling and queuing of content.
  • Seeding content - Our content does not live exclusively on our website. We seed content throughout various blogs and websites, and are always looking to expand our reach online. You will be responsible for finding and monitoring relevant sites.
  • Preparing a variety of supporting materials for various projects.
  • Writing for the MPLS.TV website.
  • Assisting in digital strategy decisions.
  • Contributing to team meetings.



What you’ll gain:
  • Valuable technical, business, marketing and management skills that traditional internships cannot provide.
  • An opportunity to help MPLS.TV grow while working with inspiring people that share a universal passion for what they do.
  • Chances to meet and network with a wide variety of people in Minneapolis business, arts, music, and entertainment industries.
  • Exclusive access to Minneapolis happenings, including concerts, parties, and more


Hours: 15-25/week
