Do you love tech and consumer electronics? Have you got a burning desire to discover, understand and share the best of the gadget world in a clear, entertaining way? SlashGear needs two new writers to join the team, flexible early-adopters who are passionate about technology, with a strong grasp of written English and the creativity to contribute to editorial and unique content.
We're looking for a weekday editor, generally covering the 11AM CST to 7PM CST timeslot, and a weekend/night editor, covering Saturday and Sunday as well as 8PM CST to 11PM CST Monday thru Friday. The successful candidates should be able to work independently, but must also be willing to take direction in content as well as subject matter choices. They 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.
Since news doesn't break only during work hours, you'll need to have a flexible schedule and understand that you may be asked to accommodate out-of-hours events and coverage, usually but not with always with notification in advance. You must be able to produce content on a steady, timely 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.
Being based in the San Francisco or NYC areas is a plus but not essential. If you think you’ve got what it takes, email us at jobs@ slashgear.com (remove space before slashgear.com) with your bio and CV for more information. Additionally, please include at least three samples of articles you believe fit with the SlashGear style, along with references.
