  6. Cultural fit: MediaNama’s journalists care about the open Internet, and are keen on learning about the latest technology policy trends and perspectives. We are geeky about technology policy. We have an eye for news and a desire to get the news first. We enjoy engaging with and helping each other out with stories, information and perspectives. What matters most to us, is that MediaNama’s community of readers benefit from our work, and learn from the conversations they have with our journalists. We like the work that we do, and take great pride in it, and the impact that it has on the domain that we cover.
  7. Comfort with ambiguity: the news industry is dynamic, you need to be able to take decisions and iterate quickly. We are currently working remotely, perhaps for the rest of the year, so expect ambiguity.
