Description

We're building great things at Mobiledia, and we want to add some talent.
Every serious candidate should have a proven track record of conceiving, reporting and writing stellar pieces that provoke change. But, our ideal candidate has also cursed at an editor and threatened to resign at least once because some idiot wanted to change his or her perfect lede.

We do a mix of quick hit daily news, future-focused analysis pieces and mini-projects that might run for a week. But we also hope to put together projects that are much to ambitions for a site our size because we like to dream.

We know the daily grind can be brutal, soul-sucking, self-esteem-lowering affairs. But if you're the type of masochist who likes working in your underwear, furiously typing away while ignoring hygiene, all for the thrill of having readers glance at your prize-winning epic right before they click through to a lesbian porn site. Well, if that sounds like your dream job, then you're our kind of masochist.

For those who wonder what it's like writing about tech, it's arguably the best industry to cover, and not just because of the iPhone and iPad. We also write about sneaker-vacuum cleaners, solar-powered bras, and other devices no man or woman in good conscience would ever buy. Not to mention the legal battles and backstabbings and betrayals (well, maybe not so much).

You'll join a family of focused, hard-working, creative and intelligent people who take pride in their work. Our team has a varied background in journalism, business, English literature, film and directing, engineering, consulting and more, but we're all passionate about educating readers about how tech will impact their lives in the future.

We'll challenge you to push yourself and grow, but we also offer support through coaching and training.

If this sounds like your dream job, please come do it with us. Send questions, or a resume/cover letter/links to clips to our contact info. If you already have your dream job, please pass this along to someone whose skills you covet. Thanks.
