Most of our writers begin by covering a team beat or writing game wraps. A team beat takes about 15-30 minutes each morning depending on the time of year; the primary responsibility of the beat writer is to check all local news sources for relevant updates for your team's players. Game wraps are done at night, following the conclusion of games.
We also sometimes have spots for evening breaking-news shifts, early morning news shifts, and other more specialized tasks that vary by sport.
Please be aware that while we do offer paid positions, working for RotoWire often takes place on more of a part-time basis that serves as a second job. There is room to earn more money and move into article/editing/media work as you go along and take on more tasks, but don't consider this to be a substitute for full-time work in the short term.
Most people join us because it's a great staff, we're the most reputable service out there, and it's fun work that doesn't take up too much of your personal time.
Here are some other benefits of joining the RotoWire staff:

We're a fantasy sports company with a website that caters to both year-long fantasy players and daily games fantasy players. In addition to the four major sports (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL), RotoWire also covers CFB, CBB, Golf, Soccer, MMA, Cricket, NASCAR, WNBA, and eSports (LoL, Dota 2, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Call of Duty, CS:GO, Halo, and Overwatch).
RotoWire's internships are open year-round, so if you're interested and motivated, fill out the application below.
Interns are expected to come into the office three times per week for 3-4 hours depending on their availability for the semester. Most internships last one semester, but some of our interns have returned for multiple semesters, and our best interns can step into part-time paid roles after their internship is complete. In fact, most of our full-time staffers are UW graduates who came through our intern program.
Our internships are unpaid, but the path to a part-time job is available to ambitious workers. The quicker an intern becomes capable of working independent of an editor, the quicker they are asked to take on a paid role.
If you want to improve your writing and communication skills while acquiring first-hand knowledge of the workings of a small business, RotoWire is a great place to intern. You'll help produce content that you can put on your resume, and when you need a reference or a letter of recommendation, we'll give you one that speaks to your experience working on tangible content. If fantasy sports becomes your life passion, we can also help put you in touch with our contacts in the industry.
Experience with Twitter and other computer skills are essential. If you're not interested in writing but love sports and want to get involved with RotoWire in customer service, content assistance, or administrative assistance, please apply below, and we'll make sure your application reaches the appropriate department.
Our most common internships are writing internships, but the full list of all available intern positions are given below:
