Looking for: Advisor, Biz developer, Marketer, Product manager

Newslinn makes it easy for local communities to share news with local journalists using nothing more than a simple email and a photo.


We've built a real-time system that authenticates users and validates photos via email - what this means is that if you can send a photo by email - you can now share local news with multiple journalists in real-time.


Bring more awareness to what's important to you and what's happening around your community. Photos are stored online in our proprietary real-time photo search engine that is accessible by trusted journalists and bloggers for free.


There are no smartphone apps to download and no social networks to join - you control who can access your photos and get feedback when they get downloaded - making it more accessible to a wider audience.


Our mission is to enable anyone around the World to communicate in real-time with journalists. We will be advancing our technology to work in low-band internet areas while still being easily accessible by email, mms or web. Our research is focusing on ways to use technology to enable communication across all levels of devices while still providing trust and validation for journalists. We're also researching user anonymity and validation technology.


The end goal is to create a new communication channel for people that write about photos (journalists, feature writers, editors, bloggers) - and to make news photos accessible in real-time - as part of this will be building analytics and business support tools, so that companies can use Newslinn as a brand new PR channel.
