Accelerating Culture

Media Internship

At HYPR, our aim is to redefine how consumers interact with content within a digital ecosystem. We want to work with someone who will have an understanding of virality and be able to understand and summarize how and why certain pieces of content blow up — where did they take off, what makes them special, and why are they worth sharing. This understanding along with the support of our team members will help this individual create content in a 2019 world.
