Internships

Our editorial and social media interns help drive community and innovation at MedTech Boston. We’re a remote company, so you’ll be working from home (or from your favorite coffee shop) most days. You can manage your own time–we expect you to get your work done, but we won’t count your hours for you.

If hired, you should plan to spend 10 to 20 hours per week working on MedTech Boston assignments, from January through May. This internship is unpaid, but we’re happy to help you arrange for class credit. If you’re located in Boston, we’ll arrange to meet with you and our other interns to discuss projects and assignments. If you live somewhere else, we’ll hang out virtually.

Editorial Internship

We’re looking for self-starters who have experience pitching stories, creating viral content and editing work from freelancers. As our editorial interns, you’ll work directly with our managing editor on everything from writing stories, to planning major projects to securing partnerships with key organizations. You’ll learn about what it takes to run a start-up and you’ll get your hands dirty as you help us consider what makes journalism work.

This is an ideal position for a student, recent graduate or resident who wants to learn about life at a startup, and who is interested in both healthcare and journalism. We’d prefer to work with those located in the Boston area, but the right candidate could live anywhere in the United States. Preference will be given to those with editorial experience–college assignments and newspaper stories count.

Examples of projects you’d work on:

  • Interviewing and writing feature stories/Q&As about key healthcare professionals
  • Managing the design and preparation of our weekly newsletter
  • Attending local healthcare innovation events and writing about the things you see
  • Pitching new types of content – this includes infographics, video stories, photo essays, and more
  • Maintaining a solid Twitter presence
  • Cultivating partnerships with key stakeholders and writing articles about their projects
  • Pitching and executing story series – our previous intern created a guide titled “How to Run a Boston Healthcare Hackathon”
  • Creating content around our networking events and our annual conference

To apply, please email your resume and cover letter to Abby Ballou (abby@medtechboston.com).

 

Social Media Internship

We’re looking for someone who has experience working with Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and more. As our social media intern, you’ll work directly with our managing editor and founders on everything from scheduling social media around MedTech Boston posts, to crunching analytics, to growing our audiences on all platforms, to pushing publicity around our events. You’ll learn about what it takes to run a start-up and you’ll get your hands dirty as you help us play with social media as a tool for bringing together Boston’s divided healthcare community.

This is an ideal position for a student, recent graduate or resident who wants to learn about life at a startup and who is interested in both healthcare and social media. We would prefer to work with someone in the Boston area, but the right candidate could live anywhere in the United States. We hope that you have some sort of experience with social media, whether that’s with your own accounts or in another internship.

Examples of projects you’d work on:

  • Posting daily tweets and updates about our content
  • Curating and writing about the hottest bits of medical technology news for our weekly news round up “Now Trending”
  • Producing weekly analytics reports to help us figure out what’s working – and what’s not
  • Attending local healthcare innovation events and live tweeting
  • Growing our audiences across all platforms
  • Publicizing our events and other events in the space using social media
  • Pitching new types of content – this includes infographics, video stories, photo essays, and more
  • Occasionally writing articles for MedTech Boston, if interested
  • Managing the design and preparation of our weekly newsletter

We are currently not taking applications for our Social Media Internship.
