|# of openings:||1|
As the Fool.com Tech & Telecom Editor/Analyst, you will not only help make the editorial department’s Tech & Telecom Bureau shine, but also help the Motley Fool in its quest to become the premier site for investing news and analysis. Failing that objective, you’ll be asked to wear a jester cap around the office and have pretzels lobbed at you.
Primary Responsibilities and Objectives:
This job has three main components:
Strategic Article Management
Your primary objective will be to edit, organize, and publish Tech & Telecom articles for Fool.com. The focus here will not be on copy editing, but rather assessing the quality of the content, catching errors, and ensuring consistency. If articles meet our Foolish standards, the next step is to strategically optimize our publishing schedule so that we can achieve better business outcomes.
The Tech & Telecom Bureau covers stocks in a wide range of industries, including mobile/desktop computing, semiconductors, social media, online services, and wireless telecommunications, among others. Over time, the Tech & Telecom Editor/Analyst will become a subject-matter expert who can be relied upon throughout the company. In addition to editing articles, this can extend to writing articles for Fool.com to fielding questions from our premium research teams.
The Tech & Telecom Editor/Analyst will use this industry knowledge to help writers improve their content, both on an individual-article basis and a long-term development basis. The Editor/Analyst will not only help promote new writers in our pipeline from freelancers to contractors, but may also help source new writers. In addition to coaching our freelancers, the Editor/Analyst may also use their expertise to contribute their own articles or videos to Fool.com.
Education and Job Knowledge:
The Motley Fool, Inc. provides equal opportunity to all employees on the basis of individual performance and qualification without regard to race, sex, marital status, religion, color, age, national origin, non-job-related handicap or disability, sexual orientation, or other protected factor.
We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention — and the company’s historical record will bear this out — we will never hire any of the following: cyborgs, robots, replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool … unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new cyborg, robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!! Perhaps we have said too much?
