    - Retail Brew delivers the most important retail business news to over 115,000 industry professionals.

    - Marketing Brew gives 94,000 marketing professionals the most important news they need to do their jobs well.

    - And Business Casual, Morning Brew's inaugural podcast, dives into the most important topics in business, from big tech to the gender equality gap.

    - Ability to write in the Morning Brew style (engaging, informative, clever)

    - Keen understanding of the information and insights that the modern business leader needs to start their day 

    - Understanding of how to leverage multiple platforms (email, social media, etc.) to engage with the target audience

    - Self-starter attitude with ability to operate in a collaborative environment 

    - Combination of attention to detail and creative, strategic thinking
