Do you like technology? Do you have thoughts about technology? Are you objective and able to turn those thoughts into kickass articles? Can you write the best words in the best ways? Then we have a job for you.
7;re looking for
We are looking for experienced and objective tech writers. People who not only use technology, but are also immersed in it. People born in it, shaped by it. If you live and breathe technology every day and constantly ask yourself “why is this thing the way it is?” or “this could be so much better if…” then you could be a great match for us. Or maybe we’re the outlet you’ve been looking for to get some of these thoughts out of your head and out into the world.
We are looking for writers who can consistently come up with solid ideas. You know, the curious type. The tinkerer. The Thinker. You have to be able to come up with ideas and then turn those ideas into great articles that people will want to read.
Here are a few examples of the kind of work we want more of:
And that’s just a very small sample size. We’re not looking for tech news writers, we’ve had enough. We’re looking for people who want to delve into what technology is, what it could be, what it should be, what it shouldn’t be, and everything in between.
About this job
This is a freelance position, but we are looking for regular contributions. It’s up to you when you write and how you work, but at least some editing overlap is pretty crucial. We like to talk about ideas as they come in to make sure we find the right angle. This leads to less time editing afterwards and ensures that everyone is happy with the final product. Teamwork, yes.
Payment is DOE, but will never be less than $100 per item.
The track is remote, but we’re looking for someone in the United States. The team (and editors) are spread across time zones, so finding a little overlap shouldn’t be a problem.
This is the fun part, right? This is what we need from you:
- Experience. You need to know what you are doing, so at least three years of experience writing about technology is a must. Experience with WordPress is also preferred. The first rule of Review Geek is: we write in the CMS.
- Attention to detail. It seems like this is always a requirement for most jobs, and this one is no different. You have to pay attention to the little things. Details are important.
- Ability to work in a rapidly changing environment. This feature is remote, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get things done quickly. Sometimes it’s like the wild west in our Slack. Take that as you wish.
- Self motivated. You are a grown person and your editors are not babysitters. If you can’t do things in a reasonable way on your own, then it just won’t work. Sorry.
- Equipment. It should probably go without saying, but you’ll need your own computer. And internet connection. And phone. And anything else that may be needed for what you want to write about. Hey, these are your ideas after all.
- Age: You must be at least 18. Sorry, young boys.
What’s in it for you
So you know what we want, but what about you? You have needs too. This is what we offer:
- Competitive pay. As I mentioned above, payment is DOE, but we start at $100 per item. If you’re the best who ever lived, there’s more for you.
- Regular, timely payments. I’ve worked with many freelance writers over the years and one of the most common complaints I’ve heard is that places don’t pay freelancers on time. We understand that you have bills to pay and stuff to buy, so we’re not about that life. We pay NET 15, so you’re always paid on time for your work.
- A great place to work. I don’t want my own bells and whistles here (too toot!) but working for RG is great. Seriously, our Slack is probably cooler than any other Slack you’re currently in or have been in. Just say it.
