Back to … work?

There’s nothing like autumn to remind you of back-to-school. Newly sharpened pencils, new sneakers, the slickest Trapper Keeper on the block. Wait, do kids even write manually anymore, or is it all emojis? Doesn’t matter. Whether you’re an eleven-year-old with scraped-up knees or a thirty-eight-year-old whose knees ache after a run, one thing remains the same: you want to learn about cool stuff, and where better to work than a place with the scoop on all the fascinating things you wish they taught in school?

Our client is a leading online tech publication with more than 40 millions readers worldwide. Their articles cover electronics, hardware, software, AI, space, cloud services, and culture. They know what’s hot in the world of computers, and they tell the world all about it in crisp, engaging articles that are read from London, England, to London, Ontario. Don’t know where London, Ontario is? Maybe it’s time for a geography class refresher.

This tech talk titan operates out of a London office that offers the opportunity to work remotely. Keep your eyes on your own paper — this is a small, self-motivated team that thrives on working independently as well as collaborating. Unlike those school group assignments where you could fob the hard work off on someone else, everyone on this team has to pull their weight.

If this sounds like the role for you, toss us a note in class. Better yet, send us an email — less chance the teacher will see.
