Join our talent pool: Editorial team

We’re always looking for sparky, creative and inquisitive people to join our editorial team at Sifted. 

We value people who love to learn, enjoy rolling up their sleeves to solve problems (and help their teammates solve them too) and take pride in doing great work.

Everyone on the editorial team is more than “just” another reporter or editor in a newsroom: you will play a big role in developing a modern media company and will have the opportunity to feed into our various products including events, podcasts and newsletters. You will also be mentored by a friendly team of journalists with experience at outlets like the Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Dagens Industri and Courier Magazine.

If we sound like a team you’d like to join — but you don’t see a role listed that looks quite right for you at the moment — please send us an open application (see below for more details).

About Sifted

Sifted is a new media platform, backed by the Financial Times, reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe. Three years after launching, our high-quality journalism is a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.

Our team of reporters, based all across Europe, aren’t chasing the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.

We have also just raised £4m to do more of what we do, even better, which includes expanding our editorial team.

What are we like to work for?

We have a small company mindset but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hard-working and passionate about what we do. We have a flat structure, collaborate across disciplines and everyone has an impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication. 

What we offer

  • Options equal to 10% of your salary
  • Shiny new technical equipment — we’re a Mac shop generally but are open to whatever suits your needs
  • €1,200 annual learning budget to spend on personal development 
  • 25 days of annual leave plus the usual public holidays 
  • Regular team socials, both in-person (when possible) and online
