Atlas Obscura is a start-up company founded in 2009 that is focused on sharing the world's hidden wonders. We are a user generated website that is curated by writers and editors situated throughout the country. We are currently working on a book that will be a compendium of all the wondrous places that we and our users have discovered in our travels. We are also partnering with Google on their most recent Field Trip app which we held events for in 6 cities simultaneously. Additionally, we founded the Obscura Society which puts on different events, lecture and field trips in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Our interns would be working directly with the websites co-founder and creative director, along with our in-house graphic designer and video curator extraordinaire, and our New York events 'ring leader'.

Please be sure to specify your availability. Our offices are open 10AM-6PM daily.


We are looking specifically for young collaborators who are interested in writing, researching and administrative tasks pertaining to our upcoming book, 2013 Obscura Society events and our wonderful, newly designed and soon to be introduced website!

There will also be opportunities for learning graphic design, video editing, and photography skills for those who are interested. We hold a lot of events in the community and would love to have someone who would also be interested in documenting these amazing adventures.

Please be sure to specify your availability. Our offices are open 10AM-6PM daily.


Experience in social media, article writing and editing, and excellent research skills a plus.

Though we are open to all levels of experience and different interests!
