Quartz plans to ‘add some fuel to the rocket ship’ with new hires

Quartz is “planning to add some fuel to the rocket ship,” Publisher Jay Lauf and Editor-in-Chief Kevin Delaney told staffers in a memo this morning. It’s hiring more than 20 new jobs, 16 of which are on its jobs page, including four editorial spots. (The company will add more positions to the page this week, a spokesperson tells Poynter.)

Memo:

Fellow Quartzians:

In recognition of, and enabled by, our incredible growth, we are planning to add some fuel to the rocket ship in the form of staff expansion. Your outstanding efforts in growing the Quartz audience to around 5m unique users/month, building our advertiser base to more than 60 accounts, and launching multiple new ventures—including Glass and the upcoming Quartz India—mean we’re ready to inject more intellectual capital into the operation. 

In addition to the positions already available, these 20+ new roles will help us continue our global expansion and enhance our ability to deliver a differentiated, high-quality experience for readers and advertisers alike. The new opportunities will span the sales, marketing, product engineering, and editorial departments in NY, SF, London and beyond. We welcome your help in identifying top-notch talent—people who are smart, creative, generous of spirit, and entrepreneurial—for any of these positions. You can see the full list of available positions here.
Thank you again for your continued efforts,

Jay & Kevin
