Description

Are you fascinated with the latest developments in chips and processors? Do you code and tinker with hardware in your spare time? Are you ready to awaken the sleeping author hiding inside your inner geek?

We want a technophile as comfortable with words as they are with consumer electronic specs. Think you have something to say about tech? Then we want to hear it!

We need someone with a deep and abiding interest in what makes tech tick, someone who delights in understanding the nuances of device manufacture and function, someone who has the ability to take complex technical details and make them interesting and coherent.

The person filling this freelance position will produce content focused on cutting-edge technology for an audience of millions. While previous published writing experience isn’t absolutely necessary, your writing needs to be polished and spry, plus the ability to self-manage and self-motivate is a must. However, a passionate interest in technology is also essential.

You will be working with an international team of writers, journalists, device reviewers, and YouTubers, some of whom you’ve probably seen. In this role, you will be writing feature pieces that dig into the details of modern hardware and software with a special focus on mobile tech.

  • SoCs

  • If you have used WordPress before, that would be nice.
  • Ability to present complex ideas in simple terms
  • Strong voice
  • Interest in tech culture is a plus
  • Positive attitude

Responsibilities

  • Unpacking and explaining the inner working of consumer electronics
  • Penning think-pieces and opinion articles
  • There is potential for world-wide expenses paid travel to tech events for on-site coverage
  • Pitch in on special projects as the need arises
  • Work in collaboration with our tech specialist to create content
  • This position is freelance with the opportunity to grow
  • Strong preference towards candidates with multiple programming language fluency

Compensation will be negotiated based on the qualifications and experience of the applicant. We pay above industry standard rates, and are seeking the strongest candidates possible.

To apply, please submit your resume and your availability along with a brief cover sheet explaining why you are the technophile who is right for this role.
