SlashGear seeks a self-motivated, independent writer with the ability to locate and publish content at a rapid pace on a full-time daily schedule. This person must have previous experience working in online publishing and should have an extensive knowledge of our modern technology and gadget environment. The successful candidate should be able to work independently, but must also be willing to take direction in content as well as subject matter choices. This person must be comfortable speaking about gadgets and technology of all kinds, especially in the fields of personal computing and mobile, with gaming being a bonus attribute. Continue below for the rest of the requirements for the position you're about to apply for.
Anyone applying for a writing position with SlashGear must have a flexible schedule and understand that they will need to work certain set hours as well as floating hours on weekends. The applicant should be flexible enough to accommodate out-of-hours events and coverage, generally with notification coming one week in advance. The applicant must be able to produce content on a steady basis, bring a strong voice to the table, and work with teammates to produce a body of work in which no bit of content is left unchallenged, no writing left unchecked.
If you're a writer who understands the tech world and all the news that goes along with it, you may be right for SlashGear. We're looking to hire a long-term professional team member who can get up to speed as quickly as possible; if you cannot meet all of the requirements above, and don't share a passion for consumer electronics, then this isn't the job for you. Would you like to join SlashGear and produce gadget news to your hearts content?
