Remote Freelance Writer for Review Geek

How-To Geek LLC in Sterling, VA, USA

Employment Type

Contractor

Think you have the perfect combination of product knowledge and writing skills? Want to work from home? We’re looking for a few experienced freelance writers to join the team at Review Geek (https://www.reviewgeek.com).

We are looking for experienced freelance writers who can research products across a wide range of topics. One day, you might be looking for the best travel pillows, one day the best compact mobile keyboards, one day a list of awesome mother’s day gifts, and general coverage of cool new products.

Here are some samples of the kinds of articles you'd be working on:

  • https://www.reviewgeek.com/409/best-travel-pillows-for-on-the-road-comfort/
  • https://www.reviewgeek.com/5904/the-best-compact-mobile-keyboards-for-typing-on-the-go/
  • https://www.reviewgeek.com/15825/9-awesome-mothers-day-tech-gifts/
  • https://www.reviewgeek.com/18397/apples-new-macbook-lineup-makes-more-sense-than-it-has-in-years/

While you need not be an expert in all subjects, you should have experience using and writing about products of different types.

This is a freelance position. We pay on a per article basis, and we’re looking for people that can contribute four or five articles per week that typically range from 800-1600 words each.

You set your own hours and write articles for us on your schedule. However, we aren’t looking for people who only want to write an article now and then---flexible schedule or not, you'll need the free time to write consistently.

Skill Requirements

  • Experience writing reviews about products. Please include writing samples in your resume or send links to them separately.

  • Experience working in Wordpress preferable

  • Ability to work in a fast-paced environment

  • Detail oriented and deadline focused, with a get-things-done attitude

  • Strong attention to detail with emphasis on accuracy and quality

  • Ability to prioritize work to balance multiple projects and deadlines

  • Ability to work both independently and collaboratively as part of a team

  • Self-motivated with a positive attitude

Primary Responsibilities

  • Write four or five articles per week that range in length from 800-1600 words

  • We’ll be assigning articles, but are always open to pitches

About the Job

  • Freelance writing starting at $100 per article

  • Articles are assigned weekly, and we’ll need them turned in regularly

  • Remote work. You will be working from home and should have your own computer with reliable Internet access
