- Serve as a brand ambassador at Fast Company live events, with additional opportunities for the brand’s multimedia platforms including the print magazine, video, and podcasts.
What We’re Looking For
- Five or more years of experience assigning and editing stories for a daily website.

- Solid contacts within the tech industry, and the ability to make new ones as stories demand.
- Excellent writing and editing skills.
- A familiarity with Fast Company, its editorial voice, and the types of companies and topics it covers.
- The ability to juggle multiple projects under tight deadlines, and thrive in a fast-paced collaborative environment, with exceptional organizational skills.
