We like to do amazing things, and you’re going to help us do it.
InfoTimes offers full-time internships on a year-round basis. Fall internships are posted in July and the internship begins in September. Winter internships are posted in November and the internship begins in January. Summer internships are posted at the end April and the internship begins in June. All of our internships last for twelve weeks.
Interns at InfoTimes do not fetch coffee or staple papers (unless, of course, they want to). They produce data-driven stories.
Our internship is an opportunity for early-career, promising journalists to be immersed in the process that brings data to life, to understand the workflow, challenges and stakes, and to experience the things that thrill us and others that drive us nuts.
We are a small, dynamic team who holds passing on knowledge to others in high regard. You will have the opportunity to learn from each and every one of us: the designer, the programmer, the data scientist, the business developer, the journalist, and the founder.
We hustle hard and we want a teammate who has a mix of drive, vision and stubbornness, and is excited by the idea of deciphering data complexity.
The internship was a quite new & informing experience. Diving into data’s world and knowing how we to use it to create digital stories and investigations was definitely a great asset for an amateur storyteller like me. The learning process during my internship lifted my creativity to a brand new level. I am truly thankful for the opportunity and for my coworkers in InfoTimes and especailly, Mr. Amr El-Eraqi for introducing me to data’s arena.
