What are we doing?
Blendle is an online news platform where users can discover the world’s best journalism. Browse newspapers and magazines for free, and never pay for anything other than what you actually read. We’re completely overhauling the way journalism is experienced.
After launching in 2014, Blendle has more than one million users in Holland and Germany. We’re now launching in the US, along with some of the world’s best publishers such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. So, do you want to join us in changing journalism forever?
With funding from The New York Times, Axel Springer (owner of Business Insider) and Nikkei (owner of The Financial Times), Blendle is one of the most exciting media companies in the world and we want you to join us. Now in private beta, with your help we’ll launch Blendle publicly to the whole USA!
What do we need?
Our team consists of a bunch of crazy smart people working together to transform the world of high-quality journalism. We’re looking for a business development whizz to take charge of our US publisher strategy and keep our key contacts as happy as possible. As Head of Business Development, USA, you’ll work from New York City, frequently meeting with the largest publishers in the world, making sure they join us on our adventure and keeping them engaged. You’ll be a trusted advisor and friend to our key contacts to get them as excited about Blendle as we are. You’ll spearhead our publisher partner strategy in the USA and be instrumental in driving us towards revenue and user growth. And as the first hire on the ground, you will be Blendle USA.
This is a truly unique opportunity to be the founding member of Blendle USA. We need someone who is a highly motivated self-starter, thrives in a challenging environment and is excited to introduce Blendle to the USA. Do you have what it takes?
Before we get into the details, you might wonder why each of us decided to join Blendle.
Journalism is a vital component of any society, but even the greatest newspapers and magazines continuously show a decrease in sales. Blendle offers a new revenue stream which will help ensure the continuity of great journalism.
We enjoy creating a product that is enjoyed by over one million users now and and hopefully it won’t take too long before we reach even more people.
There are 100 of us at Blendle. And there’s a killer vibe. Check out these enviable snapshots of us at the office and our weekend getaways:
And anyone who doesn’t care for weekend trips or swimming does something else. Because everyone does what feels right to them. Which brings us to number four:
You decide when and where you work. Roland starts his day opening his laptop on a Rotterdam balcony and Jean regularly spends the night talking to himself in our chat program while coding. We assume you know what works best for you, so you don’t need us to make the rules.
So what will you be doing?
We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!
