  • Manage a team of full-time reporters and freelancers, including organization and professional growth.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

We will list some of the benefits but part of our culture is to embody humility. So hopefully you like what you see and learn about the rest on your own and throughout the process.

  • We have a competitive compensation structure that rewards those who win, well
  • Vacation is important and we want you to take it. We’re also not into bureaucracy so tracking vacation sounds insane and that’s why we decided years ago, to offer unlimited vacation
  • Health, dental, vision, commuter, short term disability and 401k benefits are included for all our employees
  • You’ll get to work with incredibly passionate, driven, ambitious, kind, caring and mindful people and will rarely experience an overload of policies, bureaucracy or toxicity (the latter, we do not tolerate. Period).
