Analyst / Researcher

We are on a mission here at Inside.com to make people smarter -- join us!

We publish newsletters focusing on business, tech, and venture capital news. We host events and we are building a community.

We are a small, fully remote team of passionate builders, entrepreneurs, and MBAs. This is a position where you will learn a lot very quickly and will have ample opportunity to grow and try new things.

We are not looking for traditional journalists, but rather researchers. In this position, you will read today’s news from a range of general and industry publications, summarize the information concisely, and then analyze what other questions need to be answered next.

You likely consume WaitButWhy, The Knowledge Project, SlateStarCodex, Daniel Kahneman, business bios, Sam Harris, Brain Pickings, Freakonomics, Tim Ferris, Grammar Girl, and similar fare.

We have three tiers of Analysts at Inside.

  • Researcher ($50k): write newsletters and assist in producing events under the tutelage of Analysts and Senior Analysts.
  • Analyst ($60k): write newsletters, manage researchers, and produce and host events.
  • Senior Analyst ($70k): manage multiple newsletters, events, researchers, and analysts.

In each of these roles, you will read the most important news of the day, grok it, and then create deeper dives by analyzing the data, history, products, companies, services, and executives in and around those stories. As you take on more responsibilities, you’ll manage researchers and host events.
