Help Wanted: Social Media Volunteer Intern For TechCrunch Disrupt SF


So TechCrunch is hosting a little shindig in San Francisco this September. Disrupt SF, it’s called. And we’re looking for a couple of over-qualified social media types who are willing to be overworked and underpaid (and go to parties and get free cool stuff). Apply below.

The perfect candidate consumes Twitter like it’s oxygen, interacts with Instagram more than most porn spam bots, and reblogs on Tumblr like it’s their job. This person knows how to make memes, Vines, and capture life in 140 characters or less.

This person will be granted full access to the five days of Disrupt including all the parties. But of course they will be working, Tweeting, Instagramming and all that jazz at these events. You will work directly with TC staff at the events to make some cool social media for the world to consume.

The duties are pretty straightforward — assist our Social Media Director, Elin Blesener, in broadcasting the happenings at Disrupt through all of our social media channels. You will get training from one of the best social media managers around. This includes tweeting pictures and videos, uploading to Tumblr and Instagram, and creating one-off memes from the craziness that generally happens at Disrupt. This also means interacting with guests, hosts and exhibitors throughout the event.

The lucky candidate will report for duty starting at the Disrupt Hackathon on September 7th at 12:00 PDT and stay on site, tweeting and Instagramming through the night. It’s a 24-hour event. Then, on Monday the 9th and for the following two days, they will need to report on site by 9:00am. Plan to be out late and up early. Plan to have a great time. We’ll also give you a 16GB iPad Mini or Nexus 7 tablet at the end of your successful tenure.

You will need to provide your own computer, camera, and smartphone. TechCrunch will not provide housing or transportation to the event so it’s best if you’re in the SF area.
