    How to Get Hired

    We asked NewsCred for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

    What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

    We put a strong emphasis on collaboration, passion, and optimism. People that succeed at NewsCred are insatiably curious, solutions oriented, and are up for challenging the status quo. No matter what your title, everyone at NewsCred has a voice and we look for people who get genuinely excited to own and execute big ideas that will change the face of marketing. We also recognize that there will always be obstacles, and success is about demonstrating persistence and resourcefulness – all while having fun with your fellow NewsCredders.

    What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

    Prospective employees can get our attention by being tenacious, but not overbearing, in their outreach to our recruiting team. We want to talk to people who are legitimately excited about the work we're doing here at NewsCred, and want to bring value to the team. One of the best things about working at NewsCred is that our employees come from such different backgrounds. If you started out in a field completely different from where you are now, tell us about it. Chances are, you’ll show us that you’re smart, hungry, and hard working. 

    Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

    We’re hiring across the board, from engineers to sales and everything in between. If you think you have something to bring to the table, don’t be afraid to reach out! We’d love to speak with you. 

    What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

    Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn @NewsCred. Also make sure to explore our website, newscred.com, and NewsCred Insights, our educational content hub. When you’re ready to apply for a role, visit newscred.com/careers!
