MBA Content Acquisition Intern - Summer 2018

Internship | Santa Monica, CA | Intern

Travel Required: No | People Manager: No

Hulu is a premium streaming TV destination that seeks to captivate and connect viewers with the stories they love. We create amazing experiences that celebrate the best of entertainment and technology. We’re looking for great people who are passionate about redefining TV through innovation, unconventional thinking and embracing fun. It’s a mission that takes some serious smarts, intense curiosity and determination to be the best. Come be part of the team that’s powering play. 


Hulu’s Content Acquisition team is seeking a Summer MBA Intern to be an integral part of the content team.  Our industry is evolving at a rapid pace, and you’ll get the opportunity to roll up your sleeves, jump in, and take ownership in helping us tackle important strategic challenges of the content business today.  Intern projects advise our content strategy by developing insights and actionable plans that can be executed by our team. Given how quickly our industry changes, no two intern projects are the same. Previous examples include:  how we can optimize the performance of our Seinfeld acquisition, how we can strengthen and grow our robust content genres including Film, International, and Anime, how we can enter new markets like eSports or Virtual Reality, and how we can improve our Kids content environment to cater to our littlest users. This role demands someone who can blend quantitative analysis with a strong subjective filter, at a breakneck pace.  We’re small enough that everyone interacts directly with senior business leaders, sharing recommendations and debating the best path forward. The right person for this role likes to solve problems, is a die-hard fan of content and the media industry, and has great analytical and strategic chops.  If you are someone who has new, innovative ideas on how Hulu can redefine TV, then this is the role for you.

  • Create highly-detailed excel models and presentations supporting content strategy and licensing deals.

  • Develop research to support competitive intelligence and develop industry expertise; partner with internal teams (ad sales, marketing, product, finance, others) to drive initiatives forward to execution
  • Complete projects that drive efforts of the Content Acquisition team and Hulu’s content strategy.


  • An almost-obsessive love for all things TV, as well as a deep knowledge and love for entertainment and the digital media industry
  • Ninja-like skills in Excel and PowerPoint
  • Ability to thrive in an undefined environment, prioritizing and handling multiple projects concurrently, often with little supervision
  • Finely honed sense of humor and willingness to participate in lively debates
