I’m only posting this gig for a Canada Editor for The Next Web because I don’t want a full-time job; otherwise, you may be sure I would keep it all to mine fine self. Because this job is awesomesauce. Got it off multiple friends on Facebook, so don’t let anybody tell you FB is good for nothing. This here is ONE thing it was good for, once in its life.

We’re looking for a full time (maybe PT if necessary) Canada Editor.

You need to be incredibly passionate about technology, start-ups, entrepreneurship and Internet culture. You’ll be keen to immerse yourself in the Canadian technology scene – or indeed already be part of it. You’ll enjoy chasing up stories and the people behind them for interviews/comment. You’ll love people, events and developing relationships. You’ll be keen to learn the background to a story, thrive on the details and above all, be passionate about being first to a story.

You should be keen to make a name for yourself within the tech circle but more importantly, interested in being part of the Internet’s fastest growing technology blog and its team of global writers.

Unwavering passion for technology, start-ups, entrepreneurship
A hunger for breaking news.
Fast, confident writer.
Natural attention to detail
Natural drive to get to a news story first, and the story behind the story.

Spotting and reporting breaking news stories, anywhere on the planet – but especially within Canada.
Reviewing start-ups from across the planet – but particularly within the Canada
Writing thoughtful discussion posts about the International technology scene; the companies involved, influencers and everything in between.
Attending events and conferences.
Interviewing influencers and companies involved in the headline.

Salary: Millions!
