About the Company
NewsNow.co.uk is the UK's leading independent news aggregation website and provider of real time news and sports search services. Established in 1997, NewsNow is a ground-breaking and innovative company that is continuously looking for new ways to make digesting the wealth of online news a more engaging experience. Today NewsNow serves 15 million website users.
Our mission — to become the go-to destination for real time news and sports search services; to present people with news from all the angles; to build a valuable source of traffic for news publishers.
Our editorial outlook — fairness, objectivity and credibility in news reporting; for an aggregator, content may be key, but curation is king.
Our technology — largely built from the ground-up using only open-source components; highly automated; designed for scalability, redundancy, maintainability and contingency; respect is given to code quality and the creative and engineering prowess of our development team.
Our management ethos — minimal hierarchy and bureaucracy, maximum initiative. Everyone at NewsNow is invited to involve themselves in any project or aspect of the business to which they can valuably contribute, and to take on new responsibilities wherever possible. The MD takes a personal involvement in most projects, so decisions can be made quickly and action can happen fast.
Our results — successive years of high growth in page views and earnings.
Our modus-operandi — as a highly-successful Internet company, NewsNow maintains a smart and stylish office 'hub' conveniently located in London Euston, which features excellent transport links and amenities.
Furthermore, as a truly virtual company NewsNow also provides team members with the opportunity to combine this with the many benefits of flexible and remote/home working: reduced financial and time-related costs of commuting and enhanced work-life balance.
