Current Theme

We’re currently seeking submissions for an upcoming issue on hiring. We are interested in work that explores the politics and culture of tech hiring, particularly looking at recruiting strategies, discrimination and abuse in the hiring process, and strategies for hiring diverse teams. We are interested in critique of traditional approaches to the hiring and interview process, as well as alternative strategies and techniques. The relationships of hiring to tech culture, mythology and systemic inequality are of particular interest. Other topics relevant to the theme will also be considered. Please submit your ideas by end of day Friday, October 24th for consideration.

You retain copyright on any work we publish, and we pay contributors. We will try to respond to all contributor mail, but cannot guarantee we will be able to publish your work.

We are particularly interested in publishing works that:

  • Present compelling cultural and social critique of significant topics and themes in tech
  • Highlight the work and achievement of diverse groups and individuals in tech
  • Are relevant to the experiences of individuals and groups that are underrepresented and marginalized in the mainstream tech community; and/or
  • Explore the actual and potential uses of technology for social justice causes, such as activism, access, education, organization, etc.
