SPEAK SHMOOP? (Or can you at least write in it?)
Shmoop (www.shmoop.com) is a digital curriculum company that makes learning, teaching, and test prep materials that are - get this - smart and fun. We seek a college- or graduate-level summer intern who knows how to use humor to create a better way to comprehend. We’re looking for a writer who can take somebody else’s funny work and make it even funnier (what we call Shmooping it up).
Shmooping up US History content

-Be self-starting, flexible, and comfortable working independently.
-Be able to come into our Mountain View, CA office a few days per week.
-Be well-informed about current events and today’s youth culture.

Maximum 30 hours per week, paid hourly.
When you are finally ready to change learning forever, send us your wittiest cover letter, as well as a current resume. If you tickle our funny bone right off the bat, you’ll be asked to submit a writing sample and transcript.
