    Not a journalism job, but the post is Moddy-approved.

    Our 12-person marketing agency is looking for a writer to work on web copy, case studies, datasheets, press releases, etc., for our (mostly B2B, mostly tech-focused) clients. The skillset we're looking for is essentially a features writer, town reporter or beat guy, with a little bit of editing thrown in. A lot of us have journalism experience, and the creative side here is about as close as you'll get to a newsroom – we've found that "reporter" and "editor" skills translate very well into what we do.


    Any questions, feel free to drop me an email: adam (at) altitudemarketing.com.
