Modern Midwest is building a community that unites modern design enthusiasts with retailers, makers and a multitude of other brands that help define the good life in our beloved “flyover country.” Our content covers a variety of topics, including architecture, interior design, furniture, fashion, graphic design and the culinary arts.

We’re looking for an energetic and creative intern to help us grow our community through sponsored content and immersive marketing — news, brand stories, events, ideas and everything else that celebrates the modern lifestyle. If you’ve got social-media experience, a passion for events and the drive to build a brand — and a passion for the topics we cover — we want to hear from you.
