You’ll be able to tell our readers about everything from rising college basketball stars and Moneyball 2.0 to England’s top goalie, a badass Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu player or a 21st century extreme explorer.
WHAT YOU’LL LOVE DOING:
- Pitch and write original and compelling sports features each week
- Spot trends and rising stars months ahead of the pack
- Innovate with diverse ways of storytelling, from video and audio to email newsletter and VR
- Deliver engaging headlines and other smart packaging
- Work as part of a close-knit team — the OZY tribe — to help reinvent online journalism and build a unique brand
WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
- 5+ years at a high-quality media company, with significant online and some audio/video experience
- Ability to tell stories with flair
- Extensive contacts in the sports world, and can recruit and develop contributors with forward-looking ideas and sophisticated style
- Strong organizational and social skills
- Excitement and hunger to thrive in a startup environment
