Jumpstart Media is recruiting Journalists in Residence (JIR) to represent our print / online platform and branding initiatives as we rapidly expand to major cities across Asia and Australia. Jumpstart is based in Hong Kong and as of October 2018, its footprint extends to 1,500 locations in 38 cities within 10 countries. This includes Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, China, Ho Chi Minh, Jakarta, Manila, Sydney, Melbourne, New York and Silicon Valley.

If you live in one of these cities and are looking for an opportunity to learn about and get more involved with your local startup community, this is your chance.

The JIR initiative aims to connect the dots in the Asian / Australian startup ecosystems. JIRs will represent Jumpstart in their cities, as well as write / curate locally relevant stories and insights for our audience. They will also document entrepreneurial journeys from startups to corporates, identify Founder / C-level and thought leader editorial contributors, and be the spotter for us to obtain their city’s latest market insights.

Please note, this is an unpaid position. Articles on Jumpstart by JIR are clearly credited whether they appear in digital and / or print.
