You’ll be covering a wide range of streaming topics, helping us identify and report on the industry trends, programming, and personalities that are driving conversation, as well as offering thoughtful follow-up commentary and analysis. You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to our traditional movie, TV, and games coverage.

IGN’s editorial team is made up of all kinds of people that share a common love of games, TV, movies, comics, tech, and all things geeky. We strongly encourage people of every race, gender, sexual orientation, and background to apply.

 

Responsibilities

 

        Writing news stories on the streaming space, with a particular emphasis on making industry developments accessible to our audience.

        Conceptualizing, producing, and editing in-depth features and analysis to answer questions, posit relevant theories, or offer new context on the streaming landscape.

        Monitoring business and audience trends, as well as internal analytics, to identify new coverage opportunities.

        Cultivating industry contacts and sources to help create informed, authoritative original reporting.

        Working across departments to generate topical content that serves our users’ interests on multiple platforms, in text and video form.

 

Required Skills

 

        You’re passionate about the streaming space and keeping up with industry trends and news developments.

        You’re a voracious consumer of all things entertainment and pop culture, have a critical eye for quality despite the crowded marketplace, and can condense that information into meaningful recommendations for our audience.

        You’re engaged with audiences and content across multiple gaming streaming platforms, and can spot a story within the community, as well as wider cultural moments.

 

It would be extra awesome if…

 

        You're comfortable on-camera and can speak extemporaneously on games and entertainment-related topics.

        You’re based in Los Angeles or San Francisco - or can get to our offices in those cities.

        You can optimize your pieces for both search and organic discovery across platforms.

        You have regularly covered trade shows, junkets, and conventions.

        You’ve appeared on podcasts.

        You have a degree in journalism or another relevant media field.

  

If you think this sounds like the job for you, make sure to provide a resume, cover letter, and at least three writing samples that you think show your aptitude for the role.
