Description

A bit about Konekt: Since our founding a little over two years ago we've rolled our own cellular network which supports tens of thousands of devices and sold thousands of our cellular development kits. We are venture backed and growing fast to support our expanding base of customers, both big and small. We run a global operation and will hire talented people anywhere, but our headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois - Hog Butcher for the World; City of the Big Shoulders.

When you think of the Internet of Things you probably think of connected home products like smart thermostats or refrigerators, etc. But in reality this is only a fraction of the "smart" products that are coming online. By 2020 there will be upwards of 30 billion connected products and it is estimated that over 75% of them will be outside the home and rely on some form of remote connectivity.

At Konekt we are building the technology necessary to connect these billions of new devices. In doing so, we hope to enable a new generation of engineers, designers, and entrepreneurs to bring connected products to market faster and ultimately make the world a smarter place.

We are looking to hire a content creator who knows how to talk embedded/technical products around IoT for a couple of blog posts a month. The rate provided is based on 3 blog posts per month, but can be adjusted as necessary.

As an example of what we're looking for, this article on The Internet of Things (http://www.business2community.com/…/internet-things-platfor…) is great and we love the way it is written.

Commitment

We see this as a long-term gig - the time is for you to decide and will depend on how long it takes you to produce the blog posts.

Guidelines

- Please share any portfolio and links to blog posts written.

- Pitch us on why you are interested in this field.

- Tell us why you find Konekt interesting, and any other information you find pertinent.
