Location: Madison, WI
Commitment: Office hours 3 times per week for 3-4 hours

Description

RotoWire is currently seeking interested applicants for fall semester internships at our office, which is located directly behind the Kohl Center.

For those unfamiliar with RotoWire, we're a fantasy sports company that provides content to partners such as ESPN, Yahoo, DraftKings, FanDuel, SiriusXM, BleacherReport, NBA.com, and a number of other respected companies in the sports industry. We also have RotoWire.com, a subscription-based website that caters to both year-long and daily fantasy. In addition to the four major sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, and NHL), RotoWire also covers CFB, CBB, Golf, Soccer, MMA, Cricket, NASCAR, CFL, WNBA, and eSports (LoL, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Call of Duty, CS:GO, and Halo).
Interns are expected to come into the office three times per week for 3-4 hours depending on their availability for the semester.
