Cryptocurrency and Blockchain News Writer

For TNW’s new cryptocurrency and blockchain media sub-brand, Hard Fork, we’re looking for a competent news writer with a flair for spotting important stories before they’ve blown up and the ability to put out quality content at a steady rate.

FULL-TIME · ANYWHERE

Are you a lightning-fast writer with a strong voice, a unique take on the latest developments in the crypto space, and plenty of ideas how we can polish our editorial strategy and take our reporting to the next level? Do you have great aptitude for scouting interesting stories and turning boring details into valuable insights? Do you think that most cryptocurrency and blockchain reporting sucks, but you know how to fix it?

Then you might be the person we are looking for!

  • Know what’s in and what’s out in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space
  • Can churn out a high volume of articles of consistent quality

Duties

  • Producing thorough news and opinion pieces on cryptocurrency-related topics
  • Creative input for new formats, coverage angles, and ways of engaging our readers
  • Find leads and stories people care and want to know about

  • Analyze content stats and feedback to find better ways to serve our audience
  • Weekly reporting in editorial meeting
