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.
