Sports Writer/Content Assistant
Who We Are:
RotoWire is 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, and eSports (LoL, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, CoD, CS:GO, and Halo).
RotoWire's internships are available year-round, so if you're interested and motivated, use the contact information below to reach our intern coordinator.
You'll be taught how to write player updates that appear on ESPN and several of our partner sites, asked to enter data and curate our subscription website, tasked with quality checking our Apple and Android apps before they're released, and given the opportunity to sit in our live Sirius XM show or podcasts.
Interns are expected to come into the office three times per week for 3-4 hours depending on their availability for the semester. Our best interns can step into part-time paid roles after their internship is complete. In fact, most of our full-time staff members are UW graduates who came through our intern program. Our internships are unpaid, but the path to a part-time job is available to ambitious writers.
You should be an avid sports fan and a good writer. Experience with Twitter and other computer skills are essential. If you're not interested in writing but love sports and want to get involved with RotoWire in content assistance and data entry, please apply and we'll make sure your application reaches the appropriate department.
