Write for TechRaptor

TechRaptor is a technology and gaming news and review website. We’re here for anything computer, gaming, and technology related. With posts that range from general technology and computer best practices, to gaming, reviews and how-to’s, we have a diverse range of topics to write about!

That said, we have a number of positions available for volunteer writers, with the opportunity for free games and products to play with.

Here’s some quick stats (Google PageRank 2):

We generate over 30,000+ views a month, growing by a few thousand every month. Globally, our site is ranked under 900,00th on Alexa Rankings, and under 360,000 in the United States. We regularly get free copies of various game titles, with AAA Publishers sending us games as well. On top of that we have many companies sending us technology for review, namely AMD with the Kaveri Processor.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

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

Technology Writers

  • (1-2) Daily news writers  Daily news writers are in charge of publishing at least one news piece per day in the realm of gaming. News pieces should be 200+ Words and will require a featured image.
  • Review Writers – We need people to write reviews. We are being sent around 60% of the games we request, and we need more people to request and write reviews. This position is critical and we’ll be very selective with who we choose. (People who can write news and reviews are much needed)
  • Editorial Writers – 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. (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 Let’s Plays, Video Reviews, and if possible – a daily or weekly news segment! Please attach your work to your application.

Gaming Writers

  • (1-2) Daily news writers  Daily news writers are in charge of publishing at least one news piece per day in the realm of technology. News pieces should be 200+ Words and will require a featured image.
  • Review Writers – We need people to write reviews and benchmarks of new hardware/software. This position is critical and we’ll be very selective with who we choose. (People who can write news and reviews are much needed)

If you can write at least 1-2 posts a week 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. There is very little oversight, so 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!

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

We want you!

If this all looks good to you, send copies of your writing to rutledge[at]techraptor.net! If you don’t have any, you can also write up a quick review or news article, and if we like it, it will be posted immediately to the site after we set you up!

We look forward to hearing from you!
