Provisions Shop Intern Do you obsess over great products -- both stylish and delicious? Are you the first among your friends to spot those handsome Swedish linens, or to know about the artisan jam maker selling small batches of marmalade from her house? Do you find yourself constantly patrolling sites like Svpply, Herriott Grace and Kaufmann Mercantile in search of the latest and best stuff for your table and kitchen? If your answer to these questions is "yes," read on! We're Food52.com, a community for people who love food and cooking, and we're looking for a part-time intern to help launch Provisions, our new shop that will bring the greatest in food, drink, kitchen and tabletop items to our community. This internship includes, among other things:

  • Seeking out great artisanal products and brands to feature in the Food52 Shop, Provisions, and working with merchants/producers to introduce their products to our passionate food community
  • Assisting in uploading informational details for new product launches, writing and editing product pages, gathering related recipe and feature content to compliment each product and collection
  • Assisting with photo shoots to source and prepare props
  • Assisting with customer service inquiries after launch
  • Monitoring the competitive landscape and sharing news, trends and feature launches with our team
  • Taking on ad hoc research and projects

You may be a good fit for this position if you:

  • Have a keen eye (and taste!) for great products and beautiful tools and wares
  • Think creatively and have a desire to learn and share ideas
  • Have excellent communication and problem-solving skills >> remember that bad customer experience you had last week? You never want anyone to go through that on Food52
  • Are familiar with the Food52 editorial voice and aesthetic
  • Are maddened by typos and broken links/delighted when you can find and fix them
  • Feel comfortable with social media
  • Enjoy the fast pace of working for a start-up
  • Have a great sense of humor (i.e. think we're funny)
