Division Overview:

This role is within the CNET Media Group (CMG) organization, home to the biggest brands in publishing: CNET, Gamespot, TV Guide, Metacritic and many more. From massive events like CES and E3, to helping you buy your next phone or deciding what to watch on TV, CNET Media Group is at the center of tech innovation in publishing. Not just at the center; we’re #1. And we want you to be a part of it.

Role Details:

As a Product Manager Intern at CNET, you’ll have a unique opportunity to shape the vehicle through which we inform millions of people about the latest in the world of technology. You’ll need to bridge the technical and business spheres, defining new product ideas and working closely with designers and engineers to launch them. By the end of the summer, you’ll have gone through the full product development cycle, gained a deep understanding of the publishing business, and you’ll have a feature out there in the wild with your name on it (figuratively). Oh yea, and you’ll have had a ton of fun as well - we’re in San Francisco after all!

  • Define product experiences with design
  • Write and maintain detailed product requirement specs
  • Assist with QA to ensure those requirements are met

  • Develop quantitative hypotheses for new projects, and analyze data to see if projects meet success criteria, and/or to investigate unexplained increases/decrease to KPIs


  • Time commitment: full-time, 40 hours per week
  • This is a paid internship and can be for university credit if it meets your university's guidelines


You are/have:

  • Majoring in either software engineering, business, or a related field
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, organizational, and verbal/written/presentation communication skills, with the ability to build strong relationships
