Digital Marketing and PR Intern: Tech savvy and awesomely creative

  • Wired Island is a funny sounding, specialized PR and digital marketing agency focused on B2B clients in the technology space. With roots in Silicon Valley, we’ve operated for 20+ years (long before there was a Facebook or an iPhone), supporting companies from around the world. Our clients offer innovative products and technologies in the semiconductor, manufacturing, automotive, communications and consumer electronics markets. They don’t do apps, games or virtual anything – they do products that make an impact and make money.

We make them great – and more visible – with PR & media relations programs, content development services across multiple channels, and digital marketing strategies like web design & management, social media, SEO/SEM, PPC and closed-loop demand creation tactics. Clients range from early stage start-ups, to established global leaders, to government entities and trade organizations. That includes everything from two guys in a garage to the government of France.

We need an energetic, creative and quick-learning intern to assist with all facets of our business, included the marketing of the agency itself. You will work with the agency’s big dogs (and our little dog, Chico the chihuahua, company mascot) to help refine our own strategy and communications tactics, and also work directly with clients as we support their marketing needs. This is a hands-on role in a small firm and requires independent thinking and a self-starter mentality. It touches a range of communications disciplines and offers a chance to make tangible contributions to real world clients. In short, you’ll have good stuff to put on your resume.

The position would be based in Charleston but involve working with clients from around the country and world. Flexible work hours are possible and working from home is an option.

Qualifications include:

  • Strong understanding and comfort with social media and related products – Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, SnapChat
  • Basic understanding of search engine optimization (SEO) and Google technology
  • Excellent writing skills to assist with content development across all channels and media.
  • Understanding of basic web site design and management skills. WordPress knowledge a plus.
  • A modicum of design skills and comfort with basic image editing (e.g Adobe), especially for social media)
  • Solid grasp of the media relations/PR process: identify and pitching key influencers, tracking editorial opportunities and monitoring client coverage
  • Ability to grasp complex technologies and products
  • Fluency or conversational French language skills a plus

For more information drop me a line at and we’ll see if it’s a fit for you.
