Description:

Overview

This is an incredible time to be alive. We've got flying cars and rockets to Mars, robot legs and bionic arms. We're editing genes, reading minds and curing the blind. We're growing meat in the lab and mining money on laptops. We've already connected over half the world in a giant global network, and we're working on the other half.

But whereas other outlets get mired in cynicism, we don't just want to report on the ways the world is broken, we want to profile the people doing something about it. Our stories bring you to the frontlines of change, profiling the innovators, entrepreneurs, and activists who are thinking differently and making a difference. Freethink is steadfastly committed to bringing our audience to the frontiers of our rapidly-changing world. And we want you to join us.

What You'll Get

What You'll Do

The tech start-up scene is exploding and we're looking for a passionate reporter to dive headfirst into this fast-paced, innovative, and inspiring world.

The ideal candidate will be curious about how new technologies can change the world, be passionate about telling the stories of entrepreneurs, and able to discern credible claims from hype. Your beat will be flexible but will include emerging technologies such as AR/VR, artificial intelligence, brain-computer interface, etc.
