About Doing Things

At Doing Things, our process is unique, but our purpose is clear. We connect consumers across the world through humor and happiness. Doing Things is responsible for the funniest, most shareable, and culturally relevant memes and video content on the Internet. The company is making ordinary life relatable, humorous and entertaining through a portfolio that includes some of the most popular brands built on Instagram, including Middle Class Fancy, Shithead Steve, Overheard, Recess Therapy, Bob Does Sports and Animals Doing Things, among others. Through its IP, Doing Things fuels consumer products, branded content, video licensing, publishing and original entertainment across digital and linear TV.

Founded in 2017, Doing Things touts more than 35+ unique brands and delivers more than 100 pieces of original and curated content daily to an audience of more than 80 million followers across Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, YouTube and Snap. This includes the company’s fast-growing direct-to-consumer products business, featuring comedic apparel and accessories based on what’s trending, as well as our Breezy golf apparel line.

Today, Doing Things is looking to expand its team as we extend our reach to bring smiles to millions of new community members across the globe.

Job Description

We’re looking for a creative, funny, chronically online TikTok Intern to help us make and curate the best content for our portfolio of brands. The perfect candidate will be someone who obsessively consumes social content (particularly on TikTok, Snap and Instagram), who has experience running content pages of their own (include links in your application!) and who is a hard worker but doesn’t take themselves too seriously.

You’ll divide your time between using your knowledge of what’s trending to create funny, original video and meme content for our brands — with an emphasis on Shithead Steve and Middle Class fancy — and helping us identify strong UGC content and up and coming creators we can work with. This role will report to the Creative Lead for Editorial, and will work closely with brand managers running each of our pages. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in pursuing a career in online content to get their feet wet!

Responsibilities

  • Work with members of our Editorial Team to develop new content ideas.
  • Deliver an agreed-upon number of polished content pieces, with an emphasis on video and TikTok-first content, each week.
  • Consume digital content obsessively, particularly in the meme/humor space, and stay up to date with current trends and internet humor.
  • Keep an eye out for high-engagement content and content creators that we can add to our network and potentially partner with.

Qualifications

  • Experience running your own personal TikTok and/or Instagram account(s), with a particular focus on creating high-engagement original content.
  • A great sense of humor that’s informed by knowledge of what’s trending on social media (including TikTok video trends, current meme templates, etc.)
  • Easygoing attitude, but ambitious and eager to learn more about the digital content space.

What We Offer

At Doing Things, you make an immediate impact. Doing Things is a start-up made up of smart, talented and driven people looking for other potential team members with the same attitude of innovation and excellence. We offer incredible opportunities to learn and work on projects that are at the forefront of the internet media landscape and are transforming digital advertising. We offer competitive compensation that includes cutting edge work and the opportunity to join a rapidly growing startup with a proven product.

The hourly rate for this internship at the time of posting will be $15 USD per hour.
