Outliers Creative, LLC

Outliers Creative, LLC ("Outliers") exists to inspire, educate, and inform an entire community of passionate and engaged digital readers. Each day, thousands of people read our County 17 and County 3 Community News Streams to know what’s going on in northeastern Wyoming, why it’s important, and why they should care.

Big picture, we average over 650k users a year — on a single stream. We also produce two community lifestyle publications, 82717 Life Magazine and 82801 Life Magazine, which work alongside our streams to further our mission to tell the stories of the people, places, and ideas that make the communities in Sheridan County and Campbell County, Wyoming, so great.

We have a growing need for professional news journalists for our news streams and monthly print publications.

Want to join our team?

ABOUT US

The County 17 and County 3 Community News Streams are two of the fastest-growing news outlets in the state of Wyoming. Unlike most traditional news platforms and companies, our content is entirely free to view and engage, which has placed us at the forefront of a fast-paced and ever-evolving industry.

ABOUT THE ROLE

In this full-time position (though we would consider an awesome part-time person as well), the successful candidate will generate news leads and story ideas, fact check, write (a lot!), snap pics, post and monitor our stream and its social media outlets. Stories will primarily be focused on community leaders and programs, local business, innovative ideas, etc. The right candidate will be able to break down a topic and accurately relay its key points. He/she will be efficient, excel at time management, and be capable of hitting strict deadlines with a smile. While a journalism and/or photography background is a plus, neither is required.

To accept a position with County 17, the chosen candidate must be living in, or be willing to relocate to, Gillette, Wyoming, to work in our Gillette office.

To accept a position with County 3, the chosen candidate must be living in, or be willing to relocate to, Sheridan, Wyoming, to work in our Sheridan office.

ABOUT YOU

We’re looking for the following in our next team player:

  • 2+ years journalism experience (or you must be an amazing blogger/storyteller with exemplary writing samples at the ready)
  • A passion for journalism, social media, and/or the digital realm
  • A bias for results-driven execution
  • Ability to produce engaging content and headlines
  • Ability to hit ambitious (and sometimes ambiguous) deadlines
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills
  • Full-time employment commitment (or part-time if you walk on water)
  • Ability to tell a good story quickly and with the highest quality and integrity, not necessarily the most words

APPLY TODAY

Are you ridiculously good at what you do? If so…you might just fit in here and we invite you to email your cover letter and resume in PDF format to employment@mcllc.net.  Candidates may be asked to provide a list of references and writing samples if selected for an interview.

Questions? Give us a call at (307) 686-5121.
