Why community is key to Technically Media's culture
Our Mission: We convene the smartest people and organizations in industries that matter for local communities to thrive in the future. To do that, we make connections with journalism, events and services. Presently, we publish two niche news sites: Technical.ly, which focuses on local tech communities, and Generocity.org, which focuses on the social impact community of Philadelphia.
Our Story: Founded in Philadelphia in 2009 by Temple University graduates with backgrounds in journalism, the media startup has grown to more than 15 full-time employees and a wider network of contributors. We produce regular and annual events including the widely-publicized Philly Tech Week, which in April 2015 welcomed 25,000 people across 150 events and 300 partners, and Baltimore Innovation Week, which in September 2015 hosted more than 10,000 at 50+ events.
Our Values: Technically Media is a sustainable community acceleration organization. We value entrepreneurship, creativity, inclusion, flexibility, transparency and those who do, act and create, whom we highlight through news and events. Our team members are public community leaders who pursue new thinking, cherish local communities and are willing to ask challenging questions in order to get better answers. We use communication as a means for conflict resolution and community betterment. We have high standards for ourselves and others and consider professional goals to be personal ones as well.
Our Location: We are headquartered in Philadelphia, with a satellite office in Baltimore and have additional members of our team working out of some of the most vibrant coworking facilities in the world.

"Making Philly better is what gets me up in the morning, so it’s important for me to work at a place that really cares about the city. It’s great to work at a company that puts a specific, super-local tack on journalism & events, with a team that’s not just talking about the community, it's a part of the community."

I work with a great team of reporters to keep our readers informed and engaged. Our reporting holds our communities accountable and connects people to new opportunities. We at Technically Media are often the first to tell these stories, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

As Technical.ly's associate editor, I work with writers all across our markets. The best part of my job is working with tech folks who don't think of themselves as writers and helping them realize that their voices and stories matter.
