Hi! We're Upworthy, and we're looking for awesome people to join our team.
Upworthy is a social-native, mission-driven media startup setting out to make important issues go as viral as a video of some idiot surfing off his roof. (For more, check out The New York Times piece on our first 100 days, and this AllThingsD piece on our first six months and recent funding round, and of course, our About page.)
We're off to a very strong start. By some measures, we're one of the fastest-growing media sites in history, reaching six million unique visitors in our sixth month online. But to make the kind of difference we want to make in the world, we need to go much, much farther.
Our team includes folks from YouTube, The Sunlight Foundation, The Electronic Frontier Foundation, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, The Huffington Post, and President Obama's reelection campaign.
We are a distributed company, so you can work from anywhere with Internet.
Upworthy is currently hiring a visionary, decisive, and creative Product Manager. It's a big role here, and we need someone really excellent to fill it. Read more and apply here.
