Do you have experience reporting and writing about technology and startups? Do you find enjoyment in critiquing Alphabet’s (née Google) most recent acquisition or arguing that the United States’s antiquated immigration policy is having a deleterious effect on innovation? Do you have an erudite understanding of our modern vernacular and a firm grasp on the Internet’s best GIFs? Then, consider applying for Tech.Co’s Editorial Fellowship!
Tech.Co is looking to bring on two recent college grads as full-time, editorial fellows to work on our editorial team for a paid, four-month period. The fellowship is open to anyone with previous publishing experience in tech, business, science, or culture, and is remote (meaning: not location-dependent). Those with a penchant for humor, have previous editing experience, and displays unique wit on social media (particularly Twitter) will definitely get preference.
As part of a growing team, each Tech.Co editorial fellow will get the opportunity to work with our editorial team to mold the voice of Tech.Co and make a lasting impact on the future of the publication. They’ll get the opportunity to learn about online publishing, get exposure to startup communities from New York and San Francisco to Miami and Kansas City, and get introductions to many key players in the tech space. After the four-month period, editorial fellows will be reviewed and considered for full-time positions on Tech.Co’s editorial team.
How to Apply:
- Read the full job description on Tech.Co’s job board;
- Include your résumé or CV;
- Write a cover letter no longer than 300 words; and
- Submit attachments or links to 3 pieces of writing that best represents your writing voice/style.
Writing sucks. It really does. And any decent “writer” (official by means of professionally-given title or otherwise) knows this. Despite anyone’s claims to his or her own passion for writing, that person – at several points throughout life – has had a falling out with the craft; a writer’s relationship with writing is akin to a person’s relationship with another: it can be a piece of shit sometimes. And that’s fine, as long as the writer is self-aware and is still cognizant of one simple fact: that the shit must be written (whether that’s out of a professional or personal obligation).
As part of the Tech.Co editorial team, know that you will be pushed to write – and to write well – and the goal is to challenge your ability to survive in the online publishing game. And it’s a hard game, and you’ll struggle, but know that you’ll have a team to support you. As your managing editor, I’ll work with you to shape the experience that you want from the fellowship – just know that I have my own expectations from the writers with whom I work. Yes, we tie-in Beyonce or Taylor Swift into some of our articles, simply because that’s what the Internet demands. But we also dig deep into the issues relevant to the world of startups and highlight members of the community that deserve recognition. I encourage creativity and critical thought wherever possible, and I’d love for you to join the team. If you have any questions, then email me (firstname.lastname@example.org); otherwise, I hope to see your application!
