How-To Geek Is Looking For A Future Tech Writer (Freelance)
Are you a writer with a strong interest in cryptocurrency, the metaverse, electric vehicles and other future tech topics? Can you explain the NFT market to our readers and guide them through DeFi? We’re looking for someone like you to write for us here at How-To Geek.
What we’re looking for
How-To Geek is looking for an experienced writer to explain future technology topics to our readers, from cryptocurrency, blockchain, NFTs, DeFi and Web3 to the metaverse, VR and AR. Anything related to future technology is of interest to us, including EVs (Tesla and beyond).
We’re looking for explanations, editorials, how-tos, and more to help our audience understand these cutting-edge technologies.
We are not looking for a writer to write news articles only. You can occasionally write something news related, perhaps a feature article or explanation of a news story, but in general we want content that is “always green”, not standard news articles.
The ideal candidate will have solid writing experience and a wealth of knowledge on all of these technical topics. If you meet some of the requirements, for example, if you have a lot of knowledge in all these topics, but no professional writing experience yet, or if you are a crypto expert with no EV knowledge, then apply anyway.
This is a freelance position where you are assigned a number of topics to write about, but we also encourage you to pitch your own article topics.
The salary depends on experience, but it will not be less than $100 per item.
This is what we always look for in new writers:
You must be a geek at heart, always looking to learn more about technology and make your gadgets work better. You must be able to explain complex topics in a clear and understandable way, even for non-experts. You must be creative and have the ability to generate article ideas, make suggestions and make topics interesting and exciting. You must be at least 18 years old and have your own computer. You must have solid English writing skills. It’s a shame we even have to mention those. You should have some basic screenshots and image editing chops. HTML skills are a plus.
We don’t have normal office hours, and we don’t even have an office, so you can be everywhere. This is strictly a telecommuting gig.
Do you think you have what it takes? Then apply!
How to apply?
In your application, please provide an idea of your background and previous writing experience.
The most important:: We want a writing sample. If you have prior writing to showcase, especially relevant future technology-related pieces that you’re proud of, include a link to it in your email. If you have a personal blog, forum account, or commenter account anywhere, you can include that too.
