Paid internship @ magazine company

Bonnier Corporation, publisher of 50 magazines in the U.S., including Popular Science, Saveur, Parenting and Transworld Skateboarding, is looking for an intern for its new San Francisco-based R&D department. Our research and development efforts are focused on bleeding-edge technologies relevant to media and publishing, particularly as they pertain to new devices like the iPad and other emerging touch-screen devices. Bonnier R&D is in charge of the development of the company’s digital magazine platform, Mag+, as well as mobile applications and product development for the company’s magazine brands. In addition to the continued improvement of Mag+, our current projects include the creation of a new breed of mobile advertisements, a company-wide strategy for online video and TV content widgets, and the dissemination of new tech knowledge within the organization.

Intern duties will primarily focus on research (collection and analysis of existing published studies, coordination of focus groups and project-specific design research), and there will be ample opportunities to contribute to brainstorming meetings and concept development. We’re looking for smart, motivated individuals with a fresh perspective and a passion for technology and new media. Relevant university/graduate experience might include new media-focused journalism, interaction design, design research or information technology. The internship will be a flexible 20 hours per week, based in our office in San Francisco’s beautiful financial district. Pay is San Francisco’s minimum wage, $9.79/hour.
