Can’t stop digging through the latest tech and gadget news? Have a way with words? You might be the part-time news writer we’re looking for.

We are looking for an experienced writer who will crawl news feeds, Reddit, and other cool sites looking for interesting and current things to talk about. Topics will be mostly tech and include smartphones, laptops, tablets, general gadgets, and beyond. You can also expect to cover some non-tech news too, so the ideal writer will be comfortable covering a wide range of topics.

This position requires collaborating with a team in a fast-paced environment. You’ll be finding the news as it happens, coordinating stories with our editors in Slack, and then writing up the new posts quickly.

  • Strong attention to detail with emphasis on accuracy and quality

  • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team
  • Self-motivated with a positive attitude

Primary Responsibilities

  • Searching for and keeping up with tech (and some non-tech) news from a variety of sources
  • Writing engaging news posts for the site based on what’s happening that day
