WHAT WILL YOUR FELLOW BE EXPOSED TO?

Fellows will be exposed to everything: we’re a 10-person team so there’s a lot to learn. My primary focus is sales, press, fundraising and biz dev, but there will also be opportunities to get involved in product, tech and editorial.

WHAT DO YOU EXPECT OUT OF A FELLOW?

We’re looking for someone who is sharp, hungry and willing to roll up their sleeves and try anything. You don’t have to know much going in but you should be able to learn fast.
