What’s an Online Open Office?

Similar to an open day at a school or university, our Online Open Office series is a chance to meet screen-to-screen with people from SmartNews. We highlight one team per open office, providing them the opportunity to go deep on topics about their work and life at SmartNews. You can also get answers to your questions either by asking in advance on the registration page or during the event using the chat feature.

This event is an excellent event for anyone who wants to learn more about SmartNews, especially those actively interviewing or considering applying for a position!
