Built In is on a mission to unite technology professionals with their purpose. We do that through the power of content. Today, over one million registered users and 4.5 million technology professionals use our platform every year to learn about innovative companies, new technologies and further their careers.
The caliber of audience we’ve cultivated means that over 1800 companies--from the hottest tech startups to Fortune 500 companies undergoing digital transformation-- trust us to share their employer brand story and fill the technology roles that drive their strategy.
Because we can help employers find hard to recruit talent, our B2B side is thriving. In addition our users are finding great jobs and advancing their careers and knowledge of the tech world with Built In. That means we are rapidly growing our product and technology footprint as we are committed to building the leading SaaS product for employer branding and talent activation.
With venture funding of $30M to date with a $22M Series C raise in 2019, we are poised to disrupt recruiting for hard-to-fill roles and help technologists find their dream jobs--in their city, around the country or completely remote. If you are looking for an award-winning culture, have a desire to help people find their calling and want to be part of building best-in-class technology, Built In might fulfill your purpose.
We're Looking for an Associate Editor, News (Chicago or Remote)
We’re expanding our news and local reporting team to serve a sophisticated, national audience with short-form, quick-turn tech news from major industry hubs across the U.S. Reporting to the news editor, this editor will primarily be responsible for editing and publishing the news team’s output of approximately two short to medium-length news stories per day per reporter, in addition to managing and overseeing several news reporters as your direct reports. This person will need to possess strong substantive, line and copy editing skills, with acute interpersonal skills and a demonstrated ability to lead. A curiosity about tech innovations and what they say about the future is a major plus.
You’d be joining a growing team responsible for telling bold and original stories that help an audience of tech professionals learn and build new things. You’ll collaborate closely with other members of the team to discover and share new approaches, formats and perspectives. Additionally, you'll be joining a company that enthusiastically invests in office culture, even with our current, remote-only workforce.
