- Assist the freelance editor with setting up stories from our growing roster of freelancers.
- Review stories and find the best photos to include for publication.
- Become familiar with a variety of verticals.
A background in journalism or experience with managing a blog is a huge plus. Copy-editing skills and light HTML will come in handy, too. We’re looking for a voracious news reader who is eager to learn more about the digital media world.
At INSIDER, our motto is "Life is an adventure." We tell stories for, about, and by people who seize life. That means they love to travel, try new foods, listen to new music, and fight for what’s right — and they admire people who do the same. INSIDER is distributed across social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube , as well as on the web.
