Do you geek out over the latest phones, tablets, and mobile networks? Know the difference between 4G and 5G? Do your family and friends always ask you what phone to buy next? Are you an exceptional writer? Yep? The best tech reviews site on the web has a role for you. 

PCMag is looking for a sharp, energetic analyst to join our mobile team, where you’ll cover the latest phones, tablets, hotspots, wireless carriers, networks, and a whole lot more. Our mission is to deliver deep, lab-based reviews and advice on how to buy and use the latest tech. In addition to reviews, you’ll be writing news, features, analysis, opinions, and product roundups, among other stories.

This position is perfect for someone who already has knowledge of the mobile industry and wants to establish themselves as an expert within it.

Responsibilities:

  • Engage in detailed product testing and write clear, authoritative reviews, features, tips and advice pieces, product roundups, buying guides, and news stories.
  • Get ahead of trends and aggressively seek news and products for review. You will help shape our coverage in key categories, so you need to know what's next.
  • Contribute regularly to team meetings, pitching your own stories and collaborating with other team members.
  • Establish and maintain strong relationships with key hardware vendors.
  • Edit, produce, and QA reviews and other stories in PCMag’s content management system.
  • Regularly update evergreen articles.
  • Verify and enter product specs.
  • Occasionally appear in videos for product reviews and other content related to the beats you cover.
  • Represent PCMag at vendor meetings, industry events, and trade shows.

Qualifications:

  • 2 to 3 years of professional writing/editing experience at an established website, magazine, or newspaper. Product review experience and/or on-camera video experience are major pluses.
  • The ability to write quickly and clearly is an absolute must.
  • A demonstrable interest in mobile technology and networks, plus a willingness to learn at a rapid pace. Knowledge of the phone and tablet market and established contacts are both pluses.
  • You must be a self-starter who can independently prioritize projects, and be able to thrive in a fast-paced, competitive, deadline-driven environment. A strong work ethic and strict attention to detail are keys to success in this role.
  • Familiarity with online publishing platforms and digital image manipulation.
  • The ability to work our standard hours of 9AM-5PM ET. Our offices are located in New York City, but we’re willing to consider applicants interested in remote working arrangements.
