Reporting Global Tech Stories
Rest of World is an international journalism publication that’s focused on exploring the impact of technology beyond the Western bubble. Our goal is to surface and showcase the often surprising and unintended effects of tech in places that get little attention from mainstream news outlets.
Through compelling storytelling and fresh, innovative design, our digital publication explores the spaces where tech, culture and human experience collide. We are a mission-driven nonprofit startup that aims to push forward our understanding of technology’s role in rapidly changing cultures.
Rest of World is looking for a Product Manager to partner across the organization with Audience and Editorial teams, to manage new offerings that inform and delight our readers, drive engagement, and showcase the best journalism and storytelling for Rest of World.
The Product Manager is part of a cross-functional design and development team. Our team is small, impactful, and highly autonomous. In the last year we have built a full off-platform experience, a high-performance website, traditional and experimental story formats, support for eleven different languages, curation and editorial tools, and boast a highly engaged newsletter audience.
We’re looking for an imaginative and strategic thinker, obsessively focused on getting to know our readers and their behavior. One who is also ready to roll up their sleeves and help with wireframes, project management, and user research as needed.
The right product manager will be enthusiastic about journalism and reader experience and thrive in a fast environment. Unlike many media organizations, we are not ad- or subscription-driven, which allows for more creative freedom and flexibility.
This role is based in NYC. We are currently working remotely, with optional office access, but will return full-time to the office in September.

3-4 rounds of phone/Zoom conversations, a technical assessment, and reference checks
Our company ethos centers around amplifying underrepresented voices in the global tech universe, and we strive to mirror these values in our hiring and workplace environment. We value inclusion and diversity, and anyone who applies and qualifies for opportunities in the organization will receive consideration for employment without discrimination against age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, color or disability.
