Digital Trends is seeking a Freelance Mobile Deals Wrtier to come aboard and spread the word of the latest must-have smartphone, smartwatch, and tablet deals. The ideal candidate lives and breathes Android and iOS. We're looking for someone with real interest — someone who knows all the latest rumors about the Apple iPhone 12 and Samsung Galaxy Note 20, and the devices that came before them.

The right candidate already has experience writing about mobile (and at least a handful of deals-focused articles under their belt), time to contribute a minimum of five articles per week, and the desire to learn and adapt to the way Digital Trends does things. This is a part-time freelance role; however, we would like it to become a consistent, long-term working relationship if we're satisfied with your work.

  • Write new stories and update existing mobile deals content.
  • Be on the lookout for exciting new coverage opportunities.

What We Require:

  • Broad knowledge of and interest in the mobile world (smartphones, tablets, etc.)
  • College degree in journalism or related field preferred.
  • 1-2 years of editorial experience required.
  • Knowledge of AP style.
  • Excellent writing and editing skills; ability to write in a style that is interesting to the core audience.
  • Excellent organizational and administrative skills and attention to detail.
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks effectively and meet deadlines.
  • Experience working with web content management systems (WordPress preferred).

How To Apply:

Submit the following info:

  • Your background, your areas of interest/experience in tech, and your availability.
  • Resume with relevant gaming writing or journalism experience.
  • Writing samples: Send three published clips of your writing (must be gaming-related).
  • Other relevant links: Add a link to your LinkedIn profile or online portfolio.
