Social Media Intern - Portland

Cast your textbooks aside, Yelp is seeking interns to work side-by-side with our passionate, hard-working Community Manager.

Wait, what’s Yelp?
Yelp is a website and mobile app that connects people to great local businesses. From restaurants, boutiques and salons to dentists, mechanics, plumbers and more, we believe in helping consumers make smarter and more informed decisions about where to spend their money.

And who is this Community Manager I’ll be working with?
Community Managers in over 100 Yelp communities are responsible for marketing, PR, event planning, e-newsletter campaigns, social media, and various odds and ends on the local level — but they can’t do it alone! Yelp Interns play an integral part in supporting activities designed to rally the Yelp community both online and off.

  • Practical experience with new media marketing techniques.

  • Co-managing and growing the Yelp Portland Brand via the Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook page.
  • Keeping Yelp awesome with on-site projects, writing and researching.
  • Helping develop, organize and execute marketing events (parties, happy hours) and guerilla marketing programs (festivals, street ambushes, etc)..
  • You live to write and write to live and may help craft super Yelpy copy.

Other Program Details:

  • 3-6 month paid program; can be renewed with approval
  • 10-15 flexible hours per week
  • Currently lives/resides in the Portland area
  • Interns must have reliable transportation and be 21+, as we'll need your help at bars, clubs and other age-restricted venues
