You will work with a dedicated team to create original and informative articles. We need you to be a self-starting, hard-working and dynamic writer who can produce compelling pieces while adhering to our website’s strict publication standards.
If you have a passion for games gaming culture, this is an opportunity to turn that passion into a stable writing job.

IN ORDER TO APPLY: Applicants must submit a resume and a cover letter explicitly detailing their level of familiarity with the topic advertised. Applications that do not include evidence of a passion for popular game content will be automatically rejected. Remember to include whether you are applying for a features position, a news position, or a guides position.
While we review all applications, only those selected will be contacted. Please note that the next steps in the application process involve a writing evaluation.
