If you have enjoyed learning German, or are a native-German speaker and are interested in German, and are interested in life in Germany, this is the job post for you.
Deutsch Gym, the #1 platform for online German meetups, is looking for experienced content writers.
Your mission, should you accept it, will be to help English speakers learn everyday German vocabulary, understand tricky grammar and fall in love with German culture.
Deutsch Gym is conversation-based, but the blog will cover many aspects of German learning.
You need to:
- Speak German and English fluently
- Love German culture and the German language
- Love learning languages
- Be a great writer
- Meet deadlines
- Be determined to write the very best content possible
- Write an average of 3 articles per month.
- Be given a choice of several articles to write so you can choose the one you are the most interested in.
- Have an author bio with a link to your website/Twitter account so you can promote yourself as a writer.
- Have the opportunity to share your opinion and express your voice.
- Be paid a fixed price per article depending on the amount of research/complexity and time needed to write it. Prices start at 100 USD per article and could go much higher for more complex articles.
- Write without having to worry about a fixed amount of words. Your articles should simply be the best on the topic.
- Work with Rónán, the founder of Deutsch Gym, to find the perfect outline and make sure the articles fit the content strategy of the blog.
- Get paid within 72 hours of submitting completed work.
