Features Writer


Website cointelegraph Cointelegraph

The leader in Bitcoin, Ethereum & blockchain news

Job description

Our Magazine editor is looking for feature writers who can create people-centric stories, delving into why the true believers of blockchain feel they can change the world (and why they think it needs to be changed).

How is this technology affecting the lives of countless people — today, right now, not at some distant point in the future? What is decentralization, and why does it matter in the era of Big Tech, Big Data, and surveillance capitalism? What trends in the blockchain industry deserve deeper exploration?

We are not looking for news – we have that covered. And for this role we’re not interested in the price of Bitcoin or research on blockchain projects.

We’re looking specifically for story-tellers who can delve into the social and philosophical implications of an emerging technology.


You are an experienced, published feature writer with a talent for connecting threads at the intersection of finance, technology, and social impact.

You’re comfortable pitching ideas, interviewing multiple primary sources, and working with the editor to refine and hone your story. You will be equally comfortable accepting occasional assignments on subjects that may not overlap with your previous experience.

This is not a role for the neophyte writer who wants to ‘break in’ to the industry. It’s for top-notch, proven professionals who have demonstrable and extensive feature experience – along with the gravitas and persistence to secure time with interviewees whose insights illuminate your articles.

We pay competitive rates in Bitcoin, Ether, or select other cryptocurrencies. We are looking for one or two features per month.


Please send your application to magazine@cointelegraph.com

  • Links to three published pieces of work.
  • A link to your online resume or LinkedIn profile.
  • A brief description of your interest in the subject matter.
  • Your standard fee for a 2,000 to 2,500 word feature with 3+ primary source interviews (don’t be shy).
  • Contact details.

Attachments will NOT be opened.

Applicants will be asked to complete a short, news-based assignment as part of the interview process. We anticipate that this assignment will take experienced writers around an hour. It will not be for publication.
