Position: Staff writer/assistant editor/associate editor/staff writer Location: New York City About You: The Dodo is looking for strong writers and journalists who can research, aggregate and curate content. Candidates should be animal lovers with an appreciation and respect for animal causes and an interest in communicating them to a wider audience.
Writers should be able to dig for stories off of press releases, Google alerts, RSS feeds and Reddit. They should be just as confident pursuing engaging original stories as they are comfortable writing "quick hits" that aggregate animal news efficiently with The Dodo's unique voice. And they should be familiar with all forms of social media.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume, location and a link to your Dodo community page with 10 sample tweets for stories that are relevant to The Dodo audience.
Please feel free to include links to other projects, blogs or sites you've worked on and any ideas you have for growing The Dodo community.
------------------------------------------------------------ About The Dodo:
We're witnessing a profound shift in the way people regard animals. They matter more to us now. We think of them less as objects at our disposal, as science increasingly reveals them to be intelligent, emotional, social beings that are not as different from us as we used to think they were. We're increasingly committed to learning about them, more interested in understanding and improving our relationships with them, and more passionate about protecting them. The Dodo will channel this shift every day by covering the most important and fascinating stories including photos, videos, Vines, etc.
We're resurrecting the dodo -- a mysterious bird we drove into extinction nearly 400 years ago -- to remind us of just how great our impact on animals is, and to inspire us to get it right this time.
The Dodo is a venture capital-backed, New York City-based start up.
