We’re a new international journalism newsroom, launching Q1 2020, that’s focused on exploring the impact of technology beyond the Western bubble. Our goal is to surface the often surprising and unintended effects of tech in places that get little attention from mainstream news outlets.

Through compelling storytelling and fresh, innovative design, our digital magazine will explore the spaces where tech, culture and human experience collide. We are a mission-driven nonprofit startup that aims to push forward how we understand technology’s role in rapidly changing cultures.

To build out our vision, we are seeking a curious, motivated and hardworking Reporter-Researcher.

The Reporter-Researcher will be a creative engine of ideas and approaches, and can adapt to any task or challenge thrown their way — especially when reporting in international contexts. We’re looking for a well-rounded utility player who combines rigorous reporting and research skills with a passion for exploring cultures and change.
