We Need Help: Our Tech Director Cee Needs An Intern

this stock photo model is happy working for cee

Do you feel comfortable using a computer? Have you reinstalled your operating system yourself? Rooted your phone? Or are you very interested in learning more technical stuff, padding your resumè with valuable hands-on experience and helping Autostraddle grow during a super-exciting time?

I’m looking for an intern to help with anything from stripping out HTML from posts to adding new email groups. Mainly it’ll be fairly basic technically, but it can get more intense if you’re up for it.

Intermediate HTML/CSS experience preferred.

Please send me an email and tell me why you’d be interested in this, a little about your background with tech, and roughly your availability of hours now through the next 6-12 months. I am located in Portland and therefore for optimum collaboration opportunities would prefer an intern located in the Yukon, Mountain, Pacific, Central, Eastern or Atlantic timezones. Quick availability/turnaround would also be ideal.

  1. Thanks guys! There’s a ton of applications, I think you’re right about maybe tech people not being huge into commenting. I know I’m not myself. I’ll weed through them in the next few days. I’ve been busy moving Autostraddle’s email servers around.

    Also, Digger – thanks for the compliments :) I installed a one-way-trap on the hole in my roof so hopefully the squirrel problem is a thing of the past!

  2. Oh god I’m trying to kid myself I’d ever have a chance but I’m so young and British and I feel so inexperienced even though I’m not really.
    On a different note, I am really excited about all these new changes :)
