Ranker is seeking a Content Intern to join the team in our Los Angeles office.

We are looking for detail-oriented pop-culture junkies who have a comprehensive knowledge of and passion for film, TV, sports, music, video games, or a combo therein. Do you know who played Buffy Summers in the movie AND the TV show? Did John Elway win 2 or 3 Super Bowls? What does "Post-punk" mean? These are the kinds of questions we are faced with every day, and knowing the answer, or at least have the skills to find the answer in a timely fashion, are what we are looking for.

 

 

 

What you'll do:

  • Be an integral part of our cleanup project

  • Provide research on existing lists and items in our system.
  • Monitor Ranker for style issues and make corrections as necessary

 

Requirements: 

  • Strong editing skills 
  • Demonstrated passion for words, language, and grammar 
  • Familiarity with AP and Chicago style guides 
  • Relentless attention to detail while comfortable multitasking in fast-moving environments
  • Previous experience copyediting in an editorial role at a school publication or other internship at a website, magazine, or newspaper is a huge PLUS
  • A positive, mature attitude
  • A love of all things pop culture

An Insider's view of Ranker

How does your team reward individual success?

What I love about being a part of Ranker's Audience Development team is that one person's success is celebrated not just as a personal victory, but as a triumph for our whole team. Every day we are encouraged to step outside of the box and speak our minds; to be creative and analytical without fear of rejection.

What projects are you most excited about?

The best part about working at Ranker is the wide variety in the types of projects we might work on. We could be working on site optimization one week and creating big data management systems the next. Our latest project is a soon-to-be-released TV recommendation app that utilizes the latest in web development and machine learning tech.

What is your vision for the company?

Our focus for 2020 is expanding Ranker beyond our high-trafficked site (Quantcast Top 50) via growing video, globalization, licensing Rankings IP, growing the Ranker Insights business unit and most importantly, launching a new game-changing personalized TV recommendations app.

What's something quirky about your company?

At Ranker, we are all about votable lists. We even have an enormous, interactive list on display in our lobby — anyone in the office can arrange the items on the list to their own taste. Anything from top sitcom moms to fictional pets you'd love to have, there's always a good debate going on. We even vote on our favorite catered lunches!
