Here’s what we’re looking for:

Update: Active writers are now paid (rev sharing – 50/50) based on the number of views their articles generate in a given month! If you apply, this will be explained!

Note: Writers are now required to write 3+ articles a month in order to be considered “Active”

We’re looking for people who love technology and gaming. Here’s what positions we are looking to fill –

Technology Writers

  • Staff Writer – Staff writers are expected to create the following content:
    • News Writer – All writers are required to write news on top of reviews, editorials, and interviews. Because we can’t have people doing *only* reviews, writers are expected to write news pieces on top of their editorials and reviews. News pieces are 350+ words, and must not be copied press releases.
    • Review Writers – We need people to write reviews of technology and gadgets! We’ll do everything we can to get the items for review, as well!
    • Editorial Writers – We need people to share opinions, analyze the technology industry and write about big events that people should know about. This also includes TechWeek and other conference coverage. (People who can write news and reviews are much needed)
  • YouTubers interested in doing regular video segments for the site. We want to grow our userbase on Youtube and are looking for video content producers who can do interviews, tech segments, and video reviews.

Gaming Writers

  • Staff Writer – Staff writers are expected to create the following content:
    • News Writer – All writers are required to write news on top of reviews, editorials, and interviews. Because we can’t have people doing *only* reviews, writers are expected to write news pieces on top of their editorials and reviews. News pieces are 350+ words, and must not be copied press releases.
    • Reviews – We are being sent around 60% of the games we request, and we need more people to request and write reviews. We especially need writers willing to cover indie games, as there are a plethora of them!
    • Editorials – We need people to share opinions, analyze the gaming industry and write about big events that people should know about. This also includes E3 and conference coverage.
  • YouTubers interested in doing regular video segments for the site. We want to grow our userbase on Youtube and are looking for video content producers who can do Video Reviews, and if possible – a daily or weekly news segment! Please attach your work to your application.

If you can write 3+ posts about technology and gaming news as well as reviews of games and new products, you will be a perfect fit. We have a full featured site that allows you to promote yourself over social media under your author profile as well. We are looking for people with good writing skills and some humor to insert into the articles! You can write about just about anything you want!

There is opportunity for advancement!

We’re a growing site. The people who write for TechRaptor and stick with us have an opportunity for advancement both in the site and in terms of reimbursement! (Depending on the games, we will usually reimburse for some reviews, in the future, everything will be covered!). As our revenue stream increases, our writers will be looking at being paid on top of free review copies, free admittance to conferences (this is already happening – TechWeek Chicago/C2E2/Most 2014 conferences), and eventually travel to events paid for!

We want you!
