Weekend Content Producer

  • New York, NY

Company Description

GONG! is a well-funded new mobile startup changing how we share and consume the web’s top news stories. With our product launch quickly approaching, you will be joining a company that is quickly expanding. Our founders are experienced leaders in the startup space, managing over $1BB of P&L in private and publicly-listed companies, and building teams of over 2,000 people. Our CEO was even on the team that created World of Warcraft! 

A little while back we realized that reading the news and articles really sucks and is generally boring or unentertaining. We wanted to change that. We built an app that allows you to search or discover stories from any source or friend and share them with whoever you want, publicly or privately. The fun part is that you can overlay any GIF you want onto any story before sharing to truly express how you feel and spice it up a bit. Our mission is simple, make news fun, entertaining, emotional, and a truly engaging, personalized experience.
