It looks like Gawker Media will be looking for a few good commenters for a new program.
I'm creating a new program at Gawker Media that we're calling "Recruits." Recruits will be paid, short-term contractors who receive a monthly stipend, their own Kinja subsite attached to one of our eight core brands, mentoring and direction from our site leads and their staff, as well as an aggressive bonus structure that will reward the capturing of uniques (using the same Quantcast "people" metric we use across all the sites).
Don't send in an application though.
We're not currently taking unsolicited applications, but as ever, building a strong history of intelligent discussion and contribution within Kinja is a smart way to get noticed.
