About the Organization:

The People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, focused on bringing Americans together to find common ground around nonpartisan policy reforms. The People is a nonpartisan organization, and as such is looking for candidates who are able to work directly and respectfully with people from across the political spectrum without bias. Reasonable accommodations may be made to enable individuals with disabilities to perform the essential functions.  Our organization embraces diversity and is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.

About the Role:

The primary responsibility of the Website Intern will be the content migration, page building, and domain transfer of our current WordPress website to SquareSpace. The new Squarespace site is intended to be “out-of-the-box” and include little or no custom coding so that – in general – the site can be readily maintained by The People team and not regularly require web development expertise.   At the same time, the intern should be willing to explore and make the most of those “out-of-the-box” capabilities and not just rely on the pre-built templates and pre-set/default settings so the site can  meet the content, functional, and visual needs of The People.

The People is a completely remote team, so the Website Intern must be a driven self-starter and be able to work successfully with minimal virtual oversight. This is an UNPAID internship. Please indicate in your cover letter if you intend to use this internship as a requirement for credit for your college/university.
