Research and write about the most impactful private tech companies through Contrary Research.

We’re always looking for new Research Fellows to join our team. As a member of the fellowship, you’ll produce memos on private companies and support research for broader market trends. The fellowship is performance based, meaning that we’ll continue to publish fellows’ memos as long as they meet our standards.

If you’ve found yourself wanting to write about technology and startups, then being a Research Fellow is a great opportunity to add structure to that writing habit. Work with exceptional technology writers and professional editors to get feedback on your writing.

As a Research Fellow, you’ll have access to:

  • Quality Research Resources: Access to top research resources (e.g. Tegus, Crunchbase, Sacra, etc.)

  • Guest Speakers: Each week we meet as a group to discuss memo writing progress and any logistical issues. As part of that weekly meeting, we invite a guest speaker. Previous speakers have included investors and operators from firms like Index Ventures, Greylock, Battery Ventures, Coatue, and Altimeter.

  • Writing Feedback: The members of our research team have built followings for their writing to the tune of hundreds of thousands of followers and subscribers. For each of your memos you’ll be able to get direct 1x1 feedback to hone your craft as a writer.

  • Compensation: A cash stipend for each memo completed.

  • Community: The opportunity to join the Contrary community and meet other talented, ambitious writers who share similar passions for tech and writing.

For all questions, reach out to research@contrary.com

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed every two months.
