Every day, the content, awards and events we produce help entrepreneurs and innovators succeed. All provide useful insights, spark essential conversations and provide much-needed inspiration.

Written for and about the most progressive business leaders, Fast Company inspires readers to think expansively, lead with purpose, embrace change, and shape the future of business.

We strive to be a transparent, dynamic, and responsible organization that gives all of its employees a meaningful role in helping to shape what we do and how we do it.

About The Role

Co.Design, Fast Company’s award-winning design news channel, is looking for a staff writer to cover the intersection of design, technology, and business.

Co.Design provides rigorous coverage of the businesses and individuals applying design to products, communities, workplaces, user experiences, data, mobility, and more. The world’s largest, most powerful companies use design to push their agendas, sometimes for the benefit of their customers, but often to the detriment of users, other businesses, and society at large. Your job would be to tell these stories in a clear, evocative style.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Write daily stories about design and technology on Co.Design.
  • Contribute to digital editorial packages, and write mid-size, next-day analysis.
  • Contribute to the print magazine, as needed.
  • Work with Co.Design’s editors to identify trends, new angles, and potential traffic sources.
  • Host Fast Company panels and videos, as necessary.


What We’re Looking For

You should have daily reporting experience at a newspaper or an online publication, preferably covering the technology industry, and you should be a critical thinker who’s as comfortable writing short news posts as you are crafting a 2,000-word feature. Experience writing about design is a plus.
