Research & Insights + Social Media - Summer Internship

Company Overview

At ACTIVATE, we partner with brands and influencers to tell engaging and compelling stories across social media, at scale. We are a team of influencer strategists, technologists, data scientists, brand partners and operations professionals. Over the last year, we have activated over 75,000 influencers and creators to publish more than 6,500 pieces of collaborated content per month.

We’ve come a long way since our inception. Our story began in 2007 when, long before the term ‘influencer’ was a thing, we launched BLOGLOVIN’, an online platform and community for creators, tastemakers, and 12MM+ of their most avid fans. Through BLOGLOVIN’, we learned to identify emerging creators, what makes their content compelling, and how to run influencers partnerships at scale to fuel our own growth. As brands and marketers caught on to the power of these creators and influencers, they began to reach out to us for help in identifying influencers and building partnerships. In 2014, this lead us to formally launch the ACTIVATE technology platform to help our own team and partners to run these influencer collaborations more efficiently. From there, the rest is history.

We are looking for a strong candidate to join the research and insights / social media team this fall in our New York office.
