Like many people, Jeff sought a job at a startup after feeling disenfranchised in his role at a larger company. Jeff’s roommate, who was knowledgeable about the New York startup scene, told him to check out Greatist. The timing was perfect—Greatist wanted to hire a new editor, so everything fell into place for Jeff.
Jeff starts the day by checking a variety of sources—PR contacts, journal articles, social media feeds, and more—to learn the latest news. With help from his Editorial Team, Jeff lists story ideas to pitch to the Executive Editor. Together, the team chooses stories to put effort into and compose for the site, a fulfilling and collaborative process.
