Think you have the perfect combination of geek knowledge and writing skills? We’re looking for a few experienced writers to join our team.
What We’re Looking For
We are looking for experienced freelance writers to cover how-to guides, product reviews and comparisons, and explainers across a myriad of topics, including, but not limited to, things like Windows, Microsoft Office, macOS, iPhone, Android, Smarthome, Cloud Services, Small Business / IT, Gadgets, and many other topics. Note: we are not looking for tech news writers.
All of our writers should have the following qualities:
- 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 write tips, how-to articles, and explainers about complex topics that are clear and easy to understand, even to non-experts. Again, we are not looking for tech news writers.
- You must be creative, and have the ability to generate article ideas, take 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.
- You should have some basic screenshot and image editing chops. HTML skills are a plus.
How to Apply
Send an email to [email protected] with the subject Taco Journalism Writer and include the following in your email:
- Explain why your geek skills are worth touting to millions of readers each month.
- Your name and location.
- Any previous experience you have with writing and/or blogging, particularly on the beat in question (if applicable).
- Whether or not you are currently employed, and what you do if you are.
- A brief overview of the topics you are familiar with, and what operating systems/computers you have access to.
- Most Important: We want a writing sample. If you have previous writing to showcase, particularly of the how-to or explainer variety, include a link to it in your email. If you have a personal blog, a forum account, or a commenter account from anywhere, feel free to include that as well.
We don’t have normal office hours, or even an office, so you can be located anywhere–this is strictly a telecommuting job.
Bonus points if you can find the grammatical error in this post.
