Job Description

Axiom Zen is working on an ambitious new startup aiming to bring context to the world’s most relevant topics of the day.

For too long, news and media consumption has trended toward shallowness. Mainstream media is obsessed with the now, and pumps out story after story lacking crucial context and background. Unless readers have the time and energy to do their own research, it’s easy to miss the big picture, resulting in shallow understanding at best, and potentially leading to gross misunderstanding.

We believe that many people are under-informed, not because they aren’t interested or because they don’t care, but simply because there is no platform to efficiently explore and understand what matters, and how its historical context plays a role in where humanity is today.

We are building that platform.
