Here are all the open positions. Just apply now.

I‘m not quite sure why but recently somebody reached out to me via a direct message and asked me how to work for Medium.com in 2022.

This person had read my answers about Medium on Quora and started following me on Twitter.

As a prolific Top Writer on Medium with over 1,000 published stories, I love to answer questions about my home on the internet — Medium.

I shared that…

Apparently, this triggered this person’s wish to work for Medium.com in 2022.

To be honest, at first, I didn’t know what to answer.

I’m not a Medium employee, manager, or *cough* Medium’s CEO. I’m a creator.

But to help this person I did some research.

*Side note: Those who have been following me for a while know that I always go the extra mile to find solutions to the problem at hand.*

  • Just recently, in August 2022, Medium laid off 29 employees out of about 100 employees.

  • If you like experimenting and change in general, Medium is the right place for you:

“Experimentation is encouraged at Medium, and we do it a lot. Sometimes we don’t get things right, and that’s okay too. Failure is seen as an opportunity for growth.” Jobs Medium

I’m Phoenix! haha

Great idea! Would love to see this on Medium too, Buster!

Final Takeaways

Medium laid off employees BUT also hires new ones who might be a better fit for Medium’s plans for the future.

Go on Lever and check out their open positions or apply for a job proactively.

I guess it’s beneficial to know the platform from *actively* writing and reading on it. 😉

I’m curious. What do you think about the future of Medium?
