We don’t love job descriptions at TEDxMileHigh. Truth be told, we don’t even like calling them jobs.

That said, we need a few interns to join the team to accelerate big ideas to create big impact — so call it what you will...

US:

TEDxMileHigh is a community of engaged, active, and driven individuals committed to ideas worth spreading in Colorado. TEDxMileHigh promotes inspired citizenship in our communities with the ultimate goal of creating a better, more connected Colorado.

This doesn’t just mean our events. Our goal is to be a source, a hub, of intellectual conversation in the Mile High region. We want to sell out events, but we also want a deep, integrated presence online through our blog, social media, website, talks, and videos.

Since 2011, we’ve produced 21 events for a collective audience of more than 50K thinkers and doers. Our talks online have been viewed 50 million times through online channels.

While our mission is big, we try to keep things light. We have a happy, productive workplace, and we’re constantly trying to improve. You’ll find us hustling on the job, having deep related and unrelated conversations seeking life’s truths, and enjoying a laugh with a Colorado craft brew.

Both positions are unpaid internships that will be 5-20 hours per week depending on the candidate.
