Job vacancy: Tech editor, Cycling Weekly

Could you be Cycling Weekly's new tech editor?

Do you know bike technology better than you know your family’s birthdays? Can you organise a busy team testing products, shooting videos, and attending global launches? And can you combine being an ambassador for our brand while breaking the bad news that a company’s new bike might not be as good as the old one?

This is a rare opportunity to take a senior role within a remarkably influential team. Cycling Weekly (part of TI Media) is the most-read cycling magazine in the UK, and cyclingweekly.com is the biggest website by some distance. So if you can handle working in a fast-paced environment and take multi-tasking in your stride, this is a dream job of riding bikes, testing new kit and seeing the latest launches before they go public.
