We're seeking contributors to expand our offerings
It’s been a while, but we’re back!
This fall, Reboot aims to relaunch and expand our offerings with the mission of becoming the literary voice of tech.
That’s why we’re looking to bring on 1-2 people as part-time contributors and operators to grow our community.
✍ Apply to contribute
Specifically, we're looking for contributors who can commit 6-10 hours a week through the end of 2020. The main deliverables are reviewing books for the newsletter and supporting event operations.
This is an unpaid role—Reboot doesn't make money!—but we'll buy you a couple books a month and you'll get the opportunity to talk to your intellectual heroes. This is also age- and location-agnostic: the most important things I'm looking for are writing skill and a fresh perspective.
Interested? Apply below, or just click the button to learn more. We’ll review applications on a rolling basis through September 21.
📈 Our plans going forward
We want to revamp Reboot and expand it into a growing but dedicated community of technologists and book-lovers. Here’s a tentative plan for what that looks like:
Resume book talks at the pace of 1-2 events per month.
Transform the mailing list into a newsletter that publishes thoughtful book reviews alongside event listings from our trusted contributors.
Run regular events outside of book talks, whether workshops, book clubs, salons, or something else. (Let us know if you have ideas.)
Design and implement a financial sustainability strategy. We don't need to be super profitable, but at least break even on author stipends and book raffles.
Become the tech industry's literary voice. Authors send us advance copies of books to review; readers trust us for unique recommendations and thoughtful takes. Think rogerebert.com but for books on tech.
Generate enough revenue to pay contributors and become self-sustaining.
Don’t be shy; reply to this email if you have feedback, questions, or ideas for the future of Reboot. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!
