I’ve got Frank Sinatra on endless mental replay today and I’ll tell you why: I’m looking for a stellar journalist to start spreading the news about innovation in New York, New York. (Look, nobody’s groaning louder than me about that one. Let’s move on…)
My Xconomy colleagues and I are fascinated by the stories emerging from New York’s startup and venture capital scene, its burgeoning life sciences sector, and, of course, its formidable digital media and finance industries. We’re looking for a journalist on the ground to help us tell those stories and more.
The ideal candidate will be a resourceful reporter, fearless interviewer, and swift writer with blogging and business news experience and the chops to produce breaking news stories and longer features and profiles on a daily schedule. The ability to work independently (but in close coordination with a world-class team) is key, a sense of humor is nonnegotiable, and experience with Web publishing tools and social media will score you some serious bonus points.
If this sounds like you, write us at [email protected]. Tell us about yourself, your knowledge of the New York innovation scene, and why you think you’d be a great fit with Xconomy—and don’t forget a resume and clips. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience.
