- Find new or unreported stories from around the web, to pitch to editorial staff
- Write news stories relevant to the motorcycle sector in a timely, consistent, and accurate manner

- Work collaboratively with editorial team and contributors to develop new story types, coverage angles, and improve workflow
- Attend regular meetings with the Director and parent company staff

Requirements:

- Rock-solid writing chops, grammatical proficiency, experience with writing to a style guide
