Who you are:
When it comes to innovation, you know what you’re talking about. Whether it’s AI, clean tech, fintech, you know who the big players are in Victoria and you can name drop the founders leading those firms. You can easily ramble off the hottest startups that were born in YYJ and the innovators that are on to the next big thing. You're connected to the community and know where to get all the info on the latest funding announcements, IPOs, acquisitions, and more. Does this sound like you?
We are looking for a self-motivated individual who is passionate about tech and innovation news in Victoria, and can work in a fast-paced, start-up environment. Having the ability to wear multiple hats is important, as is a can-do attitude! Although previous journalism experience is an asset, so too is personal knowledge of the local tech and innovation ecosystem.
This is a full-time, remote opportunity to be a part of a fast-growing media organization that’s dedicated to connecting audiences and growing communities.
