Tech Reporter - Mashable

Editorial New York, New York


Description

Position at Mashable

Mashable is looking for an energetic and enthusiastic writer to help guide our large audience of influencers about the devices and services they use every day. The ideal candidate has at least two years of experience reporting on technology and a strong interest in learning about and getting hands-on time with all the latest products.

Mashable's Tech Writer will primarily write reviews, how-tos, tips, and hands-on experiences with devices, services, and apps. A typical day will involve checking out a new gadget, accessory, or connected device; exploring new and interesting ways to "hack" and improve experiences with the world's most popular devices and services; meeting with vendors about their new products; and producing content about it all: articles (big and small), videos, Instagram stories, and more. You should have experience writing for a general audience and can write clean, compelling copy very quickly. And you're based in the New York City area.

Responsibilities

  • Writing about tech products and services every day, sometimes a single review, and sometimes multiple stories in multiple formats
  • Coordinating with team members, editors, writers, video teams, and illustrators on your stories
  • Staying engaged on social media networks
  • Other duties as determined by the Tech Editor

Qualifications

  • At least 2 years of experience writing and reporting about technology
  • Ability to turn over clean, well-written copy on extremely tight deadlines, in multiple formats
  • Passionate about new gadgets and services
  • Strong sense of visual storytelling
  • Multimedia skills: You understand the basics of shooting quality video and photos, and know how to make it look good even if you’re just using a phone.
  • Enthusiasm for mobile storytelling tools, including (but not limited to) Instagram, Facebook Live, Snapchat, and the general "stories" format
  • Experience working for a website
  • Team player
  • Strong social media presence
