Full Time
At Original9 Media, we help brands develop and deliver powerful original content programs for any audience. Our editorial efforts span a wide range of business and technology topics and include everything from daily blogs and Web infographics to custom editorial pieces and media properties. We are in the business of building and engaging high-level business audiences with great storytelling, not gaming search engines or becoming a ‘content farm.’

The Associate Editor is a pivotal member of our fast-growing team. The ideal candidate is an aspiring writer or editor who is eager to research and write original content; assist with Web production, photo research, and social media promotion; pitch blog ideas and contribute to editorial brainstorming; and conduct and write up interviews with business executives and influencers. This position is a great opportunity for a recent graduate or current student in a graduate program in online journalism and/or creative writing looking to get hands-on experience, learn more about the technology and business sectors, and work with some of the most innovative, high-growth companies in the industry.

We’re a team of savvy content strategists with an energetic, fast-paced work environment. We’re looking for someone who likes to work hard, challenge themselves and have fun. Our editorial team is expanding quickly, right along with our blogs and media properties. Come join us!
