A New Spin

A New SpinJobs of the Week

Editors note: although most of these jobs are no longer open, the article showcases channels where you can find similar jobs posted. Channels are refreshed daily so sign up! This week we took a new spin on established ideas. We showcased jobs to usher in the era of Rails and MVC programming to the Fortune 500 behemoths. Jobs to bring in business ideas to sports leagues. If you want to bring digital bits to paper money, we had a channel for that, and if you wanted to reinvent the fit and finish of the running shoe, we had a channel for that too. Finally, we had jobs for those bringing agility to the software development life cycle, and for those turning a content library into marketing wizardry.

In keeping with this weeks theme, here are our editor’s picks of the week.

1. A New Spin on Conference Curation — Screener Intern at TED

TED has been around for a while. Yet with their stylized short videos and their willingness to tackle new concepts, they keep the experience of conference learning fresh. So if you are looking for an internship that’s both fun and challenging, check out the posting for screener intern at TED. You can be a college junior, senior or a recent graduate, but”You need to feel a personal stake in the future of science, politics, philosophy, art, and/or pop culture, and demonstrate bona fides in one or two of those fields”. Based in Manhattan, this role will have you screen talks put forth by the TEDx community.

If you love pop-culture and want to be a writer or an editor, we have a channel for you. Want to host events like TED, we have a channel for you too.
