Job Openings

It takes world-class talent to build a global powerhouse. Join our growing team.

New York, NY

Do you take pride in noticing small details that other people overlook? Do you grapple with balancing creative and analytical pursuits?

Do you love the Internet and want to make it a better place?

We are a leading digital publishing company, and we might have a job for you.

Our company publishes a variety of websites with a focus on technology, business and science. We are looking for an individual to work in the newsroom of our New York office—here’s what you’d do:

Work directly with editors and reporters to conceptualize story ideas that will resonate with our target audience. This means putting yourself inside the heads of our users and considering how curiosity, self-interest and emotions drive a response to content. This also means using data to make educated guesses about which types of content will succeed, understanding why certain things fail, and helping the editorial staff learn from these findings. The bottom line: We want our successes to be repeatable and we want our readers to love our brands.
Work with editorial staff and web producers to distill complex content into short, meaningful summaries. This might sound easy, but it can be hard to represent a 4,000 word article in five words (a URL), 55 characters (a page title) and 140 characters (a meta description). The bottom line: We believe that search engine optimization is about expanding our audience by presenting people with the exact piece of information he or she is looking for. This means being honest about our content, smart about how we organize it, and having an obsessive focus on semantics and small details—you are a librarian of the web!
Put yourself into the mind of our users and provide an honest assessment of how our websites might be perceived, and what we can do to improve them. The bottom line: We need someone who will help us nitpick our websites and to focus on ways we can improve user experience.

Personal Skills

We need a creative individual who is personable, detail-oriented and has an appetite for understanding how (and why) things work. Above all, you must be a good communicator. This position involves working with “data people,” “business people” and “creative people,” and being able to translate concepts from one group to another. A writing, editorial or advertising background is a plus, as well as being an avid reader.

Technical Skills

These are the tools, software and skills that you will be using in your day-to-day duties. You needn’t be an expert with everything listed here, but obviously, it’s a benefit to have a deep- or working-knowledge with several of these tools.

Working at Purch

When our team of award-winning editors and experts aren’t running system building contests, contemplating manned missions to Mars or talking about the latest ‘must-have’ gadgets on national television, they’re at home overclocking CPUs, skygazing in the wilderness, and obsessively tweeting on their smartphones. In short, we’re a culture of tech and science lovers and our passion shows in everything we do. The people who work for us are dynamic, brilliant and inventive. Expectations for our employees focus primarily on results produced, rather than any antiquarian notions of work leftover from an agrarian age. We’re digital, and our people absolutely know what they are talking about. We’re smarter, less mercurial and volatile than other corporate media setups in the same fields, and we take a lot of pride in both our agility and our stability. We’re no-nonsense and extraordinarily pragmatic while still hanging on to all the exciting stuff that makes what we do fun.
