Job: Writer, NowThis News

Postby ColleenW » Wed Jan 16, 2013 10:41 am

NowThis News is hiring another writer and we're hoping to find somebody fantastic.

Must be: FUNNY. Gleefully/thoughtfully/mischievously engaged with the world, news, and pop culture. Super smart. Full of heart and zhuzh. Formally imaginative. Irreverent but not glib. Able to pitch lots of refillable concepts, social media ideas, & takes on stories. Able to think visually. Able to crunch complex concepts into less-than-two-minute-long scripts for video news chunklets that are fun, funny, pithy, and shareworthy. Nice, cool, and extremely comfortable in the social sphere (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).

The gig is definitely an asst/assoc/junior-ish slot right now -- but that need not deter you if you're above that level, 'cause we'll be hiring others down the line. You'll need to enjoy working longish hours in a startup environment with a lot of smart, engaged, interesting, and creative people. A journalism background isn't necessary, but you'll need to be able to write in a voice that's punchy and like you're telling a friend the news.

Please send a resume and writing samples (links to clips etc. are fine too) to jobs@nowthismedia.com
with "Writer" in the subject line.

Thank you!

Colleen Werthmann, Head Writer
