Work at Rebel News

Rebel News Network is the largest online news network in Canada. Since its launch in 2015 Rebel News has been dedicated to telling the other side of the story, and challenging the narrative of the mainstream media.

Rebel News is different because our supporters participate in shaping everything we do, through a mix of online engagement, commenting, advocacy, and events. We don’t just report the news — we participate in it.

That’s what makes working at Rebel News unique. We’re a small operation with a large footprint – and no other media companies have successfully recreated our high-engagement model.


SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGER

sample-imageThis role is perfectly suited for someone with digital experience and a passion for conservative or libertarian politics. Rebel News is very much a start-up business. Unlike the CBC, we don’t get any money from the government or have any major donors funding the majority of our operations.
