The Tech Report is looking for a staff writer to help expand our CPU and graphics coverage. This staffer will be responsible for assisting our senior staff with reviews of graphics cards and CPUs, along with daily news posts. We may also assign reviews of other hardware to this writer as needed.
The ideal candidate will be a computing enthusiast with experience building and maintaining PCs. You should be passionate about and familiar with the personal computing technology we use today in all its forms. A background in IT, computer science, electrical engineering, or technical writing, either through education or work experience, is a plus.
A strong command of the English language and exemplary writing skills are mandatory for this role. You'll work with our senior editors to distill hardware specs and test results into well-crafted, entertaining prose. You'll also be called upon to edit other writers' feature articles and news posts from time to time, sometimes without supervision.
Familiarity with Microsoft Excel is strongly preferred. Basic image editing experience (with Photoshop or other applications) is preferred but not required. Experience with basic photography concepts and possession of a non-smartphone camera is also preferred but not required.
This is a full-time, salaried position. The Tech Report is largely a remote organization, so you should be comfortable with such an arrangement. We mostly communicate using tools like IRC and Skype. You must be able to motivate yourself and manage your time effectively without direct supervision. Access to a PC and a reliable Internet connection is essential. You must also be qualified to work in the United States.
To apply, please send a resume, a brief cover letter introducing yourself, and a writing sample based on this press release to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Your sample work will not be published on the site.) We will accept applications until the position is filled. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we regret that we cannot respond individually to every candidate. We will contact you personally if we think you're a good fit for the role. Thank you in advance for applying.
