HIRING: Cryptocurrency Journalists and Analysts
Share this article
Crypto Briefing is a truly independent blockchain voice, and we’re looking for cryptocurrency journalists and blockchain analysts.
Our model is as successful as it is innovative. We’ve organically grown a media property that is already serving 300,000 readers per month – and that number is expanding rapidly. The foundation of our work is not dictated by advertisers – because we have none.
Instead, we are VC-funded by some of the top funds in the world, who believe in our mission and our model. Over 18 months we have built value and trust, becoming one of the most well-respected media outlets in our space by adhering to strong ethical principles. We have never accepted a sponsored story, free tokens, ads, or any other form of payment – nobody pays to play in our sandbox.
Our new products will be hitting the market soon, and growing our news and research team is part of our ongoing commitment to providing insightful, actionable intelligence for our readers and subscribers.
That’s why we’re looking for the most outstanding talent only.
As a news writer / journalist for Crypto Briefing, you’ll deliver engaging writing that caters to a highly-intelligent audience. Our readers are early adopters, blockchain innovators, and crypto newbies: their common denominator is that they’re hunting for smart and informed work.
What we are looking for in a cryptocurrency journalist:
• The ability to select intriguing news stories and locate primary and secondary sources.
• The tenacity to deliver a minimum of 15 articles of 450-750 words each, every week.
• A willingness to promote your own pieces through our social media channels.
• Knowledge of best-practice SEO techniques.
• The potential to assist the publishing team in preparing the work for WordPress.
• Exceptional attention to detail and fact-checking skills.
• Demonstrable writing expertise in business markets.
• An understanding of journalistic ethics, and ideally, U.S. First Amendment rights.
• A strong interest in, and aptitude for, cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
• The discerning ability to add a little irreverence and a clever headline to a news item.
What we are NOT looking for in a cryptocurrency journalist:
• Opinion or feature writing, how-to guides, ICO reviewers, or analysts. We’re hiring for the news.
• Perfection. You’ll be working alongside an experienced editor who will offer constant advice on how to improve – and who will expect you to learn quickly and take constructive feedback well.
