This is a unique opportunity to showcase your expertise, with hands-on reviews that inform and engage big audiences. We want your voice to guide our audience to the coolest products, the services not worth the cash, and the weird goodies they didn’t know they needed.

The role requires a sincere passion for all things gadgets and an ability to translate that passion into engaging reviews. The Mashable reader wants to know how their technology impacts their lives. Yes, we care about the gear. Yes, we understand the gear. But we care even more about how people live with the gear. How good is the selfie camera? Is this app selling your data? Is there a UI issue that will bug the hell out of you? We need a reviewer who understands our audience.

This position is part of the Ziff Davis Creators Guild, a NewsGuild union. For more information, please visit the NewsGuild website.
