Job Description

Circa is dedicated to reporting news and sharing entertainment with video and articles crafted entirely with your phone in mind. Circa's reporting is hard-hitting (we break national news on the daily) but also hyper local (we deep dive into every corner of the U.S. for tales that deserve your attention). Add to that a third tier of making the biggest news items of the day digestible on your smart phone and we've got every angle covered.

At Circa we strive to bring you photos and videos natively to every social network already in your pocket. We'll be live and you'll be with us as we go into experimental kitchens across the nation, talk to stars at film premieres, visit protestors in the trenches, meet those holding down weird professions and sit with major political figures. Circa is also diving into long form storytelling, virtual experiences and initiatives that will get you off of your computer and doing something in real life. Our hope is that we can impassion you enough to make some change.

  • Pitch stories based on social trends
  • Research and crowdsource information in trending and breaking news situations

Qualifications:

  • Desired candidate must know facebook, twitter, snapchat, instagram and tumblr inside out
