Join our grand experiment in creating high-quality, insightful news. 

The Position

WhoWhatWhy is looking for a tech-obsessed volunteer Software and Technology Evaluator to research and test the many apps we may need to run our operation.

To Apply

Please send us a resume and carefully reasoned, customized cover letter that shows that you have studied and thought about what we do at WhoWhatWhy. Our mission must resonate deeply with you. We will not review applications that appear to be mass submissions.
