Social Media Internship (DC)

The Greenpeace USA Online Strategy team is a group of online experts who thrive on creative thinking, grounded in what the data is telling us. We continue to develop highly specialized skills in the most important areas of online communications -- web design, blogging, social media, mobile, email fundraising and activism, search engine optimization and online to offline organizing. Most importantly we have fun and take pride in thinking big, failing big and winning big. While building expertise in the most cutting edge online organizing strategies and tactics the Online Organizing intern will help Greenpeace launch a renewable energy revolution to combat global warming, stop the destruction of ancient forests, hold corporations accountable and yes, save the whales!

In addition to helping the team promote Greenpeace campaign pushes to our online supporters, the Online Organizing Intern is encouraged to take on projects of their own. Creativity and new ideas are valued greatly on our team.
