iFixit is hiring a Public Relations Intern for our PR and Marketing team. Our staff is small, but we’re the vanguard of a global community that is redefining people’s relationship with their stuff. We teach normal people how to fix the things they own—from the simple (like busted seams) to the complicated (like smart watches). We do it because we believe that repair empowers people to take control of their hardware, teaches them what’s going on inside their gadgets, and encourages them to keep things in use and out of the landfill.

The ideal candidate will have passion for effecting change in the world and protecting our right to repair.

iFixit is the largest online repair resource, teaching millions of people every month how to believe in themselves and repair things they didn’t know they could. Our step-by-step repair manuals and troubleshooting forums have set the gold standard for online repair documentation. We also make the best darn precision repair tools in the world. Our resources, tools, and fix kits have helped people in every country in the world repair their own devices.

iFixit is almost twenty years old, but we’re just getting started. We have a lot of exciting projects coming up this year, and we’re looking for someone to help us share them with the press and with the world. This is a part time, six month contract position, and will be reviewed quarterly.
