A natural storyteller – someone who can inspire and motivate other thought leaders, with creative thinking and a clear pitch.

Along with other creatives, you will partner with a strong team of business thinkers, planners, engineers and producers to push our collective definition of the brand through big ideas that leverage technology, experience, design, filmmaking, photography and excellent writing. A healthy disregard for the impossible is fundamental to success. You will work across all mediums to unravel human interest stories.

1. Help shape the outward expression of the brand by leading narratives around the future of technology, machine learning, and policy.
2. Develop and foster relationships with internal partners
3. Identify, pitch, and develop human interest stories around the products, values, and people involved with the brand.
4. Conduct interviews, create outlines, and write both copy and features around a theme.
5. Coordinate with strategy, editorial, and design teams to produce a digital story incorporating many different media element.

Required Qualifications:
- BA/BS degree in Journalism or similar field
- 5 years of experience as a journalist
- Portfolio of original work and clips with a focus on longer form or features writing.

Nice to have:
- Optimism in the face of massive challenges
- A self-starter who is comfortable with quandaries, and asks big questions
- Relentless curiosity
- An understanding of branded content languaging and priorities
- Experience and skill set in a diversity of digital documentary and narrative media
