Shine, building the largest community for accessible wellbeing, is looking for an Editorial Intern to help ensure Shine members have the best content and experience possible.

In our first year, Shine has been featured in outlets like Mashable, TechCrunch, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, TIME, CNN and NBC, and its founders were named 2 of the top 35 People to Watch in NYC Tech. We are a VC-backed startup whose founders have a dynamic combination of tech, media and non-profit experience - building on 17+ combined years in consumer messaging.

We’re at the forefront of innovative, conversational, and accessible self-help content, whether that’s through our weekday Shine Text or content on our blog, advice.shinetext.com.
