We’re a media group with several online publications that’s powered by youth-driven content to inspire and enthuse our readers. Our media assets include Vulcan Post, DiscoverKL, Millennials of KL, and we want to grow bigger and launch even more—with you in our team!
Our vision is to introduce you the latest digital lifestyle news so that you can bring our topics and discussions to your daily conversations.
Our small but ambitious editorial team writes articles that will appeal to the digitally savvy millennial—stories revolving around local startups and initiatives, tech lifestyle pieces, inspirational people, and trending social media news.
1. Editors/Writers (Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore)
This job doesn’t just require you to write—you write to educate, increase awareness and engage the mind of our readers.
Creativity and an inquisitive mind are your strengths. You’re able to ask the right questions to fully understand the subject at hand. You are able to think out of the box to create content angles that will blow anyone’s mind.
Most importantly, you’re looking for a job to fully commit to. It’s not JUST a job to make ends meet, it’s something that you want to be passionate about and invested in emotionally. If this is you, we want to meet. Hopefully you will find our lame jokes and boisterous laughter bearable.
