TechSpot is looking to hire writers that are driven and enthusiastic about technology. If you are a TechSpot reader, then you know the job requires profound understanding of technical matters and the ability to write about them with accuracy and authority.

For two decades, TechSpot has remained a strong and influential voice in PC technology and we've historically hired mostly from within our ranks, with over 9 million readers coming in to keep up with the latest industry developments.

We currently have freelance openings for the following positions:

  • Daily news reporter: This position requires you to be active daily, discovering, writing and posting news stories on our frontpage. Excellent writing and proofreading skills are a must. You will be assigned a time slot and will be free to identify stories and report on tech topics in a concise yet inquisitive manner. Creativity and a knack for picking timely and interesting topics is important.
  • Weekend news reporter: Similar to the position above, we'd like you to dedicate time to discover and report on the most interesting tech stories during weekends. Know a good story when you see it, be able to analyze what's important, and report on those facts. Excellent writing and proofreading skills are a must.
  • PC Hardware / Software / Mobile / Electronics Guides and How-tos: You will work with our team to brainstorm ideas and write original articles, guides or explainers. Basic requirements include being able to explain topics in simple terms, have the technical depth and expertise to back it all up, and then present those instructions in neat written form. TechSpot reports on a variety of areas, so we can adapt to your interests and strengths within technology. This position does not require daily work but be able to commit to deadlines and execute on article ideas.

Before you apply, you should know:

  • Relevant experience in tech journalism is important, but not a must.
  • Geographic location is not a constraint but native English skills are an imperative.
  • This is a work from home (Batcave, Fortress of Solitude, etc.) type of position... but hey, that's what everybody is doing these days.
  • Compensation is commensurate with article length, quality and experience.
  • If you're a regular reader of TechSpot, do mention this in your application.
  • Topics we cover on TechSpot include but are not limited to: computer hardware and software, tech culture, mobile devices, the internet, IT business, and gaming.

If the positions don't fit your bill, but know someone who may, you can help us by sharing this announcement with friends that may be as technical as you.
