Staff Writer at Fast Company

About The Role 

Fast Company is seeking a hard-working, whip-smart staff writer to work on its Impact section, covering the intersection of business and social good, focusing on social entrepreneurship, climate solutions, alternative economic models, corporate social responsibility, and the future of food, transportation, and more.

We’re looking for someone with interest and ideas about the intersection of business and changemaking—how the business world can (and can’t) influence the path of progress. Your job will be to help tell the stories of people working on cutting-edge solutions and investigate and expose when those solutions aren’t what they promised.

What You’ll Be Doing

Reporting and writing stories daily, helping with some editing and display copy writing, and working with us on managing our annual World Changing Ideas recognition program. There may also be opportunities to moderate panels at events and contribute features to print. 

What We’re Looking For

You should have several years reporting experience at a newspaper or an online publication, preferably covering some area of technology or business. You should comfortable building a beat, developing sources, and generating ideas for enterprise features. You should be comfortable writing short news posts as you are crafting a 5,000-word feature. Experience writing about (or prior interest and expertise in) some of the topic areas the Impact section covers is a plus.

To apply, send your résumé and a short note explaining why you’re a good fit for the position to Impact editor Morgan Clendaniel (mclendaniel at fastcompany dot com) with the subject line: “Impact Writer.”
