Work for The Memo: We’re hiring global writers

By Kitty Knowles 23 December 2016

Come join us.

It’s been a great year at The Memo.

We now have over 500,000 readers every month, 20,000 subscribers to our newsletter, and we’ve just closed a successful round of funding.

But a great publication can only be as strong as its team – and we want to make The Memo even better.

For 2017, that means expanding with exciting new writers.

Specifically we are looking to hire 2 freelance writers based on the East Coast to help us increase our US coverage in the years ahead.

Later in the year we are also looking for 3 individuals who are immersed in the tech scenes of Africa, South America, and Asia for a short-term project in Spring.

We will task you with specific feature ideas, but you will also have opportunity to pitch the hot stories you are personally passionate about.

The big question is, could that be you?

Job specs…

East Coast contributors

The Memo HQ may be in London, but New York is home to our second biggest audience.

As we work towards opening a New York office in 2017, we’d like to hire two of the smartest freelancers on the East Coast.

You don’t have to live in the Big Apple: ideally we’d like to to hire one journalist in New York and one in Boston, but we are flexible as long as you are too.

You will need to have an intimate knowledge of the tech and business scenes and be willing to travel to conferences and events across the US.

One of your first commissions would be contributing stories across North America for our upcoming Go Global series.

Africa, South America, and Asia contributors

We are also looking for three talented and passionate journalists to contribute to our ‘Go Global’ month in April 2017.

For this month we will spend one week focusing on the digital climate of four continents: North America, Latin America, Africa and Asia.

There is no limitation on where you live, but it will be seen as an advantage if you are based in a city with a thriving small business scene like Singapore or Buenos Aires, for example. 

Regardless of your location, you will need to have a strong understanding of the digital economy across the countries and cities on your continent.

You will be commissioned to write 2-3 features, with opportunies to pitch further ideas.
