Description

We are seeking a top notch writer/editor for our technology sites (electronics, broadband, hdtv, etc.) who is familiar with these topics, has great research skills, and can explain technology and electronics effectively to anyone through his/her writing.
Required skills:

* Top notch writing skills
* A good understanding of technology (broadband, hdtv, etc.)
* Basic HTML skills
* Ability to meet deadlines
* Knowledge of WordPress CMS (how to edit, post articles, etc.)

Responsibilities:

* Creation of top grade content on research topics for a variety of website and topics (details upon qualification) - the focus at the beginning will be on TECHNOLOGY topics (broadband, hdtv, etc.)
* Posting of written articles via our custom CMS system and/or WordPress
* Other duties as assigned

Required education:

There are no formal education requirements. If you fit all of the above requirements, you can be considered for the position, but when you submit your resume, please submit three examples of your best work. Not ten and not one. THREE EXAMPLES OF YOUR BEST WRITING WORK.

We need someone who can do great research and can write on a variety of topics, so keep that in mind when you send in your resume.

There are two priorities we need for this position… the first is top notch writing skills first and foremost. The second is an ability to communicate ideas without sounding like a robot. (Think \"[Whatever] for Dummies\" that anyone can understand). A great sense of humor is a plus – don’t be afraid to show us yours. Knowledge of social media is also a plus. If you have Facebook, Digg, Twitter accounts - mention that in your application.

What You can Expect:

* We will interview potential candidates over the phone or Skype.
* If selected, you will be asked to write 3 written articles (500-1200 words) on topics assigned (you will be paid for this via paypal).
* If we like your work, you can expect to be assigned 3-5 articles per week on an ongoing basis, possibly more depending on your availability and skill.

What to know:

This is a REMOTE position and you will be working REMOTELY, so your ability to communicate with us in a timely manner and meet deadlines is paramount.

If you make the cut after an evaluation period, you can expect to receive a larger volume of work. If you are looking only for temporary work, this may not be for you.
