Some of the most exciting work at Technically Media is done by our product team, which is figuring out new ways to make money that can support our journalism. The product team develops and runs products like our sponsored content line Technical.ly Creative and our recruiting platform Technically Talent. It’s also the team that’s working on our recent Lenfest grant to develop a membership model. Sound cool? We’re looking for a editorial product fellow to help us execute our various sponsored content projects and who’s eager to learn about developing sustainable business models for journalism.

This position is perfect for a journalist who’s fascinated by the future of news. You’ll primarily be focused on writing and reporting sponsored content (check out examples here), and you’ll also participate in our weekly product meetings and creative sprints, getting an inside look at what R&D looks like at a news startup and the opportunity to participate.

The rest will be tailored to your interests. If you want to learn to pitch and write stories, we’ll hook you up with our editorial team. If you want to see what it’s like to sell editorial products, you can hang out with our sales team. If you’re curious about what it takes to organize large-scale events like Philly Tech Week and coding competition OpenBracket, our events team is here for you.

Technically Media, which publishes local tech news network Technical.ly and social impact news site Generocity, is now eight years old. We’ll teach you what we know about building a media company.  

You should:

  • Have experience reporting and writing. It doesn’t need to be extensive experience, as we’ll train you.
  • Be a self-starter. We’re a lean company and don’t micro-manage.
  • Be a great communicator. Things move fast here, so we expect a high level of communication and teamwork to make sure everything runs smoothly.
  • Be professional and comfortable working with clients. You’ll be representing us when you interview clients for sponsored content.

This position will last for four months and requires a commitment of 10 hours a week. It pays $1,000, plus a per-article rate for every article you write.

If this sounds good to you, send your resume, 2-3 clips and an email explaining why you’re interested in the position and what you’d hope to learn during the fellowship to product manager Cary Betagole at cary@technical.ly.
