We’re building a software platform to combine data, analytics, and the "wisdom of the community" to help solve the cold cases of the murdered and missing, and we need an intern—is that you?
Every year, more than 5,000 cases go unsolved, and because of law enforcement’s need to "allocate resources," the victims that go cold most often are women, persons of color, or LGBTQ+. We believe the more resources we can provide to digital volunteers and citizen solvers mean more "citizen detective" communities. We can reduce the need for law enforcement, use our collective impact and success of the platform to influence public policy, and ultimately start getting wrongful murder convictions overturned.
Sound like something you want to be a part of?
Beyond collaborating with our amazing remote team, we need an intern to help us with:
Cold case research
Organize data and verify information
Build timelines and maintain records and spreadsheets
Write blog posts and web copy
Post and conduct social media listening to engage with the true crime community
Maintain a content calendar
The perfect candidate would be someone:
interested in cold cases: - do you listen to true crime podcasts, or watch Netflix documentaries—outstanding. - do you follow certain cases and post on Reddit or Websleuths—perfection!
tech-savvy and detail-oriented—a must
interested in being part of building something special
We’re looking for a weekly commitment of 15-20 hours per week. We’re a small, remote team; with regular interaction. You’ll have access to the entire team and a 1:1 mentor. This is a paid internship.
