About Us:

Blockworks is a financial media brand that delivers breaking news and premium insights about digital assets to millions of investors. Our content, newsletters, podcasts and events provide investors with the critical analysis and information they need to make smarter decisions about digital assets.

Who You Are

You're a talented, engaging, and thoughtful journalist/writer who loves showcasing your creative mind and curious attitude in writing, especially in newsletter format. You're a crypto enthusiast who follows the industry and gets excited when there is a new narrative to shape.

You consider yourself to be dynamic and highly collaborative and look for the same qualities in the team that you join. You love working with other collaborative and humble builders in a shared mission to craft a sustainable model for crypto journalism.

What You’ll Do

As one of our Reporters, you'll regularly craft timely and relevant short-form newsletter articles and longer, more in-depth stories across a myriad of Blockwork newsletters. Every day will look a little different, but in general, you will do things like:

  • Write Daily Contributions: You'll be responsible for producing daily newsletters in collaboration with our team of writers, editors, and operators.

  • Write Voicy, Analytical Journalism: You'll be responsible for crafting content that helps fill the unique niches of each of our newsletters.

  • Conduct Thoughtful Interviews: You'll proactively interview founders, developers, investors, thought-leaders, movers, and shakers across the industry, building a deep source network to help strengthen our newsletters.

  • Craft Supporting Content: You'll also produce web articles, social media, and other forms of online content to support your newsletter contributions.

  • Grow an Audience: You'll partner with the Blockworks team to help grow your newsletter's overall reach.

Experimentation is frequent at Blockworks. Comfortability with being uncomfortable is a must.

What You’ve Done Before

You're an experienced writer who isn't a stranger to the crypto space, Web3, particular topics around tech, decentralized protocols, and more. You have demonstrated success producing and and publishing crypto-related journalism and/or online content, and are excited to share your previous examples. You're at home with the ins and outs of DeFi, blockchains, L2s, and other tech-focused subjects, and can help explain them to even the most novice reader.

You use crypto tools, protocols, and software personally and are an active member of the crypto Twitter/X community. Lastly, you're able to work autonomously and have no problems meeting or exceeding demanding production deadlines in a flexible but fast-moving environment.

It’d Be Great If You’ve Done This

Having previous experience working in crypto media or other content-related companies in the industry and the desire to do it again will move you to the top of the list. Possessing a strong knowledge of who and what matters in crypto today, as well as a deep-seated understanding of the audience for crypto information and analysis, will set you apart from other candidates.
