    We’re looking for a full-time (maybe PT if necessary) Australia based tech writer.

    You need to be incredibly passionate about technology, startups, entrepreneurship and Internet culture. You’ll be keen to immerse yourself in the Australian technology scene – or indeed already be part of it. You’ll enjoy chasing up stories and the people behind them for interviews/comment. You’ll love people, events and developing relationships. You’ll be keen to learn the background to a story, thrive on the details and above all, be passionate about being first to a story.

    You should be keen to make a name for yourself within the tech circle but more importantly, interested in being part of the Internet’s fastest growing technology blog and its team of global writers.

    Conditions:
    Passionate about tech
    Fast, confident writer.
    Natural attention to detail
    Natural drive to get to a news story first.

    Responsibilities:
    Watching out and reporting breaking news stories, anywhere on the planet – but especially within Australia.
    Reviewing startups from across the planet – but particularly within Australia
    Writing thoughtful discussion posts about the International technology scene; the companies involved, influencers and everything in between.
    Attending events and conferences.
    Interviewing influencers and companies involved in the headline.

    Salary: Industry standard but negotiable.
