Live blogging has become the defacto tool for covering breaking news. If you’re not hitting the web within seconds of a newsbreak, or a major event, then you’re behind the competition. ScribbleLive equips newsrooms with the skills and tools they need to compete in a tough environment.
ScribbleLive already employs a team of digital journalists, who work to help our clients become better livebloggers, and we’re looking for another digital journalist to join our team.
We are coming off an amazing year of growth with the partnerships and momentum to dramatically accelerate in 2013. We work with some of the largest and most innovative media companies in the world in a fun, fast-paced exciting environment. When news happens — everything from unrest in Syria to the latest iGadget — our customers turn to us to deliver the news in real time all over the world.
