Grist is hiring

Grist, an environmental news non-profit based in Seattle, holds a special place in my heart as the first place I ever worked. The story goes a bit like this…

During my freshman year at college, I was still keen on making my career as a photojournalist. I applied for six summer photo internships at various publications, all unpaid. I waited, waited, and waited, and didn’t hear back from a single one. Then, Corey McKrill (now with the legendary Theme Foundry) sent an email to the Whitman listserv advertising Grist’s web production internship. Paid — enough to live for the summer in Seattle. Andrew Witherspoon and I had done some WordPress hacking breaking the past semester so I applied, got the gig, and the rest is history.

Grist is hiring not one but two developers. If media, the environment, and WordPress is your sort of thing, you should talk to Nathan (and tell him I sent you).
