Gawker is hiring a gossip reporter. Or perhaps more precisely: a scandal reporter. We're looking for someone interested in penetrating the personal and professional lives of titans of industry, finance, and culture. Someone who can jump on and assiduously follow the tale of the recent dickpic-tweeting political figure, as well as reliably develop compelling enterprise stories about the lives and misdeeds of powerful people and report out our prodigious well of incoming tips.
This memo, intended for Gawker Media employees, was published on JimRomenesko.com earlier today. In the interest of sharing our mission to bring editorial and commercial conversation with our readers — those who, under our new discussion platform, truly control it — it is being republished in full here.
