We’re looking for talented, hard-working, and passionate individuals to join our team. We have positions available for online news writers. As a news writer with us, you will work full-time to find and write up-to-the-minute news reports for immediate publication, as well as research, pitch, and write longer editorial content. You also may be required to work with other team members to successfully research and write articles. This position can be filled from any location, as long as you have the ability to telecommute.
Applicants should have extremely strong journalistic writing skills, as well as impeccable spelling and grammar. You should be very creative, and be able to effectively research new and original content. We run on a fast-paced schedule, so you need to be able to work quickly and meet deadlines. You will also need to be able to communicate frequently and effectively with other team members to coordinate new projects. Ideally, you should have previous experience with writing for an online news outlet or magazine, although applicants without experience may still be considered if strong writing skills have been demonstrated. Higher education in English, writing, or journalism is helpful, but not necessary. Most importantly, you should be very passionate about writing, and willing to put in your best effort every day.
There are many benefits to working with us. One of the biggest is that you get to work from home or from the space of your choice, and you can even bring your work with you if you are a frequent traveler. All you need is a computer. We also provide somewhat flexible hours, so you can work when you are feeling at your best. Finally, you’ll get to be a part of a fun, creative, and inspiring team, and create exciting new content every day.
If you are interested in applying, start by sending us an email containing the following items:
- A cover letter, which states your interest in the position as well as your contact information
- Your resume or CV, which should list all relevant experience in writing or web content creation
- An example of your work. This should be no longer than 1000 words.
If we decide that you are a great potential candidate for us, we will contact you to arrange an interview. Please do not contact us with questions about the status of your application. We receive thousands of applications each year, and although we do read them all, we are unable to respond to every applicant.
