We are looking for a talented and passionate individual to lead RADII’s Innovation section. This is an exciting role with the opportunity to really shape one of RADII’s key content verticals and make an immediate impact. The Innovation Editor will write or edit all of the content that is published in this section, shaping its long-term editorial strategy and maintaining its day-to-day publication schedule.
This is a full-time position with commensurate pay, based in our office in Shanghai.
Innovation is one of RADII’s three core verticals, along with Culture and Life. The purpose of the section is to show the original and unique innovation taking place in China today, upending the cliche that Chinese tech companies imitate rather than innovate. Tech hubs like Beijing (a hotbed for search, AI, and media companies), Hangzhou (China’s e-commerce mothership), and Shenzhen (a global manufacturing powerhouse, and home to China’s major gaming companies) are changing the country’s reputation for originality and regularly produce bleeding-edge cultural and technological breakthroughs.
How are Chinese tech companies forging their own paths, identifying problems and creating unique solutions to the issues the world faces today? How are Chinese startups and entrepreneurs creating value within the strictures of China’s political system? What is the next technological breakthrough that China will export to the world? How does China’s shifting tech landscape translate to the level of everyday life? These are the stories we want you to tell.
