Tehnical.ly seeks a tech reporter in DC
Technically Media, a digital media company best known for its local news network Technical.ly, is hiring a Market Editor, which serves as beat reporter and editorial point of contact for its D.C. site.
We’re seeking someone who is eager to work a beat, file daily and build a network of sources in the region’s emerging business community. The D.C. staffer is responsible for community coverage, which primarily includes reporting but can also include the editing of outside contributors, including guest posts and freelance pieces.
This person with exceptional news and relationship-building instincts will work with the Technical.ly Editor-in-Chief to comprehensively report on the early stage tech, entrepreneurship and innovation communities of the D.C. area. The D.C. Market Editor will also work closely with our established Baltimore Market Editor.
At Technical.ly, we believe that journalism is a necessary act for strengthening any community. Our mission is to use news coverage to grow an audience of technologists and entrepreneurs inspired by local impact, and to bring them to action. The D.C. Market Editor will focus their reporting on the leaders of growing companies and the smartest technologists that support such companies. We fund our work by making connections in our community, through events, storytelling and services, particularly with talent acquisition strategies. Much of our most impactful work includes helping connect jobseekers and employers.
The ideal candidate will excel in cultivating source relationships to consistently deliver valuable local business news, quickly and accurately. You should have experience in and a willingness to experiment with new media, and an interest in supporting and learning from a journalism organization that gives value to all community members, including readers, event attendees and sponsors. Plus, as a small, growing media startup, we’re probably more fun than your traditional editorial role.
This is a full-time position with a salary ranging from $42,000 to $48,000, depending on experience. Staff members receive access to our company healthcare and dental plans, a 401k plan, a monthly IT stipend for our bring-your-own-device work environment and other related benefits.
