Inverse is looking for an Innovation writer who can report on emerging technology and is excited to tell stories about a future that’s both fantastic and frightening. This isn’t a job writing up the latest smartphone; the Innovation section is looking further ahead to the cutting edge. The ideal candidate is eager to bring context to academic studies and find the first signs of a future still being written.
What’s an Innovation story? Well, you know that big issue that is affecting millions of people, the one nobody has solved yet? We’re the tech angle. The latest tech to fight global warming, the long road toward self-driving cars, the new space race, how A.I is helping detect cancer, the fears and hopes of automation, that one piece of vaporware that finally dropped, whatever the hell quantum computing is (we know what quantum computing is): that’s an Innovation story. We’re optimistic but not gullible.
