Become the voice of feedly – DONE


One of our 2014 resolutions is to continue to be open, transparent and work closely with the community. We are looking for a content crafter to join the feedly team and become our voice. We are looking for our Belle Beth Cooper.

Our community is composed of millions of readers, thousands of publishers and lots of third party developers. We want to build the feedly blog into a place where the community can discover great stories about reading, learning, publishing, advertising and startups.

We are lucky to be at the intersection of 4 significant trends: personalization, mobile, publishing and next gen advertising. Lots of innovation. Lots of interesting research to do. Lots of interesting stories to write.

We are looking for someone who loves to do research and write interesting stories.

Our team is distributed between Palo Alto, New York and France. We welcome remote work.

The compensation includes salary, stock as well as comprehensive healthcare.

If you are interested, please send an email to with links to content you have recently written and some background information. We will get back to all candidates.

Update Jan 28th: Thank you very much for reaching out. We received about 800 applications so far. The team is working hard to review each of them in detail. We hope to have a response back to everyone by the end of this week. This re-affirms that we have an impressively amazing community!

Update Feb 2nd: We received and reviewed in detail 1,200 applications. We were blown away by the quality and diversity of the applicants. Thank you!!! We are going to try to get back to everyone next week.

Update Feb 27th: We were able to successfully complete this process. We will be talking more about this in March. I would like to thank again all the people who invested the time to write and submit an application. We tried to respond by email to everyone – there might be a hundred or so emails to send out so sorry if you have not received a reply yet.

          1. Catalán! jajajajaja. Si quieren tener lectores de todo el mundo a modo expansión mal vamos con el catalán xD

        1. This is a stunning surprise for me. I was thinking of Turkish youth, which I am a constituent of, is lagging behind the technological innovations and trends as I thought Turks’ interest for them is shallow for the most part. I agree that they are extremely interested in popular social media platforms, blogs (Instagram, Facebook etc.). They are also enthusiastic followers of the top-notch gadgets on the market, however, I rarely encounter with people have genuine intention of being a part of “change” or creating an opportunity by utilizing those very powerful ideas, techniques, or information in the web world. I have not seen anyone, for instance, having a discussion about content marketing, future of web start ups, or being a global solopreneur, given that most of people I am surrounded with are young and college educated. In other words, Turks might be really good at being a user or follower, yet, they seem to be reluctant to leverage what they learned or acquired by turning them into actual (for profit or not) projects before they fail catching up with being an architect of next big trend. Feedly, Pocket, Flipboard and apps like these are truly vital as they navigate and illuminate us. I, therefore, am very thankful for the creators of Feedly and happy to see young Turks enthusiastic for learning and making progress.

        1. A znasz jeszcze jakiś język?

          Uczyłem się języka rosyjskiego when Rossija was call ZSSR (CCCP) and before Chernobyl.
          Russian is very easy to learn for polish people because sounds very similar.

    1. Ahaa, its pleasant discussion regarding this piece
      of writing at this place at this web site, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting here.

    1. Examples: “What are the best 5 blogs to learn more about bitcoin?”, “How do teachers take advantage of blogging and readers?”, “5 great examples of content marketing”, “5 great examples of engineering blogs”, etc..

      1. “best of” and “lists of #” are yesterday. the feedly blog definitely will need new content themes outside of those.

      2. Is the compensation based on the number of articles written? A flat rate for time spent? Hourly? Would this be considered full time or part time?

    1. I’m pretty sure feedly will eventually tap into the spanish speaking market and later brazillian portuguese. With the google reader death, this service has seen tremendous growth it seems.

      1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty
        foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
        iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
        topic but I had to share it with someone!

    1. of course like your web site however you have to check the spelling on several of your posts.

      Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to
      tell the reality then again I’ll surely come again again.

  1. Are you considering doing an internship program at some point? As a college student, I would be very interested in interning at Feedly for a Summer.

  2. This sounds like a wonderful and interesting job. But I would only want to do it as a contractor since I volunteer at National Wildlife Refuges. Have you thought of having part of the job come from contract workers? I love research and writing but don’t get to do a lot of research for writing. I do have a science background and as a school teacher, did research for my fellow teachers, as well as research for doctors, and now personal research.

  3. Fantastic opportunity. I love doing research and writing stories. I just do not have any published writings to submit.

    Good luck to all applicants.

  4. This is a great opportunity!!! I love doing research and writing stories, but I never had time before. I just change my work and now I have time to write, but I would like to write in my native lenguaje, spanish. I’d like to be present when you are interesting on spanish post.

  5. What an amazing opportunity, I wish it could begin post-graduate! I love the role that you guys have created to blend engagement, research, trending topics, and content creation; this job description should be a part of every aspiring PR/Marketing/Communications person’s background and goals. It’s all about your audience and what they want to hear (or I guess read, if we’re being technical).

    1. Having read this I believed it was very enlightening. I appreciate
      you finding the time and energy to put this information together.
      I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and posting comments.
      But so what, it was still worth it!

    2. We’re a group of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community.
      Your site offered us with useful information to work on. You’ve performed a formidable
      task and our whole community will be thankful to you.

    1. That extension was not created by the feedly team and did not belong to us. Some developer wrote it, used the feedly name to grow it base and then sold it to some malware company. As soon as we heard about it, we sent an email to Google who removed it from the Chrome Webstore within 2 days.

    1. Hello There. I discovered your weblog the usage of msn.

      it and come back to learn more of your helpful info.

    1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
      I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
      The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
      looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  6. Sounds intriguing. I am bilingual Spanish – English. I am living in Saudi Arabia at the moment but will be heading for Spain in June. I would love to work with you :)

  7. Either you’re a very creative audience with such humourous replies or I have lost faith in humanity.

    Very few commenting actually read the description, the responses or indeed your own posts. Of those applying to be writers, the majority of you couldn’t even string a grammatically correct sentence together in the language that is required.

    I don’t imagine the 800 applications will be very difficult to create a shortlist from.

  8. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your
    website. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.

    Extremely useful information specifically the last part
    :) I care for such information a lot. I was seeking this particular info
    for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  15. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with
    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  16. I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a website or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.
    It’s caused by the fire displayed in the article
    I read. And on this post Become the voice of feedly – DONE |
    Building Feedly. I was excited enough to drop a thought :
    -P I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be simply me or does it look like like some of these responses appear like
    they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you
    are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.

    Would you make a list all of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  17. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.

    I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this. Also, the blog
    loads very fast for me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

  18. Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be at the internet the easiest thing to
    keep in mind of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed whilst people think about concerns that
    they just don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the
    top and also outlined out the whole thing without having
    side effect , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

  19. It’s a pity you don’t have a donate button!
    I’d without a doubt donate to this outstanding blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account.
    I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about
    this website with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  20. It is true that in the beginning numbers are all that matter.
    Sometimes the scammers aim small, since it seems more realistic for Mc –
    Donald’s to give away free meals or Starbucks to give away coffee than for an airline to rain free tickets down on all its followers.
    As a result of representing yourself precisely on Facebook you will be helping
    to generate trust and safety for just anyone.
