  • Effectively use social media to share your pieces and grow our audience
  • Get paid for your efforts

What You’ll Bring:

  • An interest in understanding the crypto and financial markets (stock market, currencies, institutional investment world, digital assets, cryptocurrencies, etc.)
  • Prior writing and/or reporting experience at university newspapers, publications and/or magazines
  • An understanding of how to leverage social media to engage our audience
  • Self-starter attitude with the ability to operate in a collaborative environment
