Xconomy is Expanding Its Coverage of Michigan Innovation—and We’re Looking for Great Writers to Join Us

8/19/10Follow @bbuderi

It’s been just four months since we launched Xconomy Detroit to bring our unique coverage of life sciences, information technology, energy, transportation, robotics, venture capital, and other high-tech arenas to bear on Michigan’s innovation scene—but already we want more! We have found a ton of stories of technology and innovation that still need telling, and we want to expand our coverage to do our job even better. If you are a great journalist who’s especially interested in the business of technology and innovation, you could be part of it. We are looking for one great full-time writer-editor, and/or one or even two part-time reporters.

Specifically, we’re seeking enthusiastic, creative, versatile, knowledgeable journalists with top-notch writing skills. The ideal candidates will be resourceful researchers, fearless interviewers, and swift writers with blogging and business news experience and the chops to produce breaking news stories and longer features and profiles on a daily schedule. A great team attitude and the ability to work independently (but in close coordination with the team) are key, a sense of humor is nonnegotiable, and a facility for Web publishing tools and social media will score you some serious bonus points.

If this sounds like you, write us at jobs@xconomy.com. Tell us about yourself, your knowledge of the Michigan innovation scene, and why you think you’d be a great fit with Xconomy—and don’t forget a resume and clips.

You would be joining a truly fantastic team that includes some of the world’s best innovation journalists covering some of the nation’s most fascinating innovation hubs: Boston, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, and, of course, Detroit. You can learn more about Xconomy and our team here.

We look forward to hearing from you!
