Dive In


He was a good tool to download other browsers.

That’s what the tombstone for a mock-grave of Internet Explorer declares. It was created by a South Korean engineer after Microsoft officially announced the demise of the browser. Of course, the end of IE is not a joke for half of Japan’s businesses—which still use it to this day.


Splainer is hiring: We are hiring for a key position in our editorial team to join the brilliantly talented splainer fam. The job includes daily editorial responsibilities, co-hosting our podcast plus working closely with our brand partners. Unlike the average newsroom gig, this is a lot more than the standard writing/editing job. Here’s what we’re looking for:


  • Impeccable writing, editing and researching skills—with a big emphasis on the last bit. We pride ourselves on the quality of information we offer our readers.
  • 1-2 years of experience—though not necessarily in journalism. But if you don’t have a passion for news this is likely not the job for you.
  • A knowledge of and love for splainer is a huge plus—since we’re not the usual news product. 
  • Willingness to work in a startup environment where we all do a bit of everything—and are eager to take initiative and responsibility.


Please note there is a six-month probation period—and the job includes ESOP incentives after the first year. We are location-agnostic and an equal opportunity employer. And we pride ourselves on a warm, friendly work culture. Please send your resumes and cover letter—telling us why you want this job—to talktous@splainer.in.

Give the gift of splainer: If you’ve been enjoying your splainer subscription, be sure to send along your referral link (see below). It offers a free month of splainer to anyone you want. You can send it to friends & fam—or post it on Insta, Facebook or Twitter. Each time you share this link—along with a message of why you love us—it is also a huge gift to us. So please share widely and help us grow!
