Want to write for +Android Police?
I'm looking for a competent candidate with excellent communications skills and lots of experience writing about and tinkering with Android, preferably due to having worked for another Android or tech blog.
The position is freelance, so you'd be able to work remotely in your underpants if you so desire. We routinely need to cover 2x the amount of material we have manpower for, and I want to beef up our staff.
You will have the opportunity to review various hardware down the road, travel to conferences, like CES, MWC, and I/O, and generally become a full member of the AP team.
I'm primarily looking in the U.S. for travel proximity reasons, but my experience does prove that there are plenty of eligible candidates outside the U.S. (have you seen what +Rita El Khoury
brings to the table, for example?), so I'm not going to rule out a possibility of non-U.S. folks getting accepted.
Bonus points for having experience with graphic design tools, ability to produce and edit videos (especially if you're in the LA area close to +David Ruddock
and +Mark Burstiner
), and thinking outside the box (editorials, long reviews, think pieces, etc.).How to apply
: Send an email to email@example.com and include a mention of this post and an introduction that will leave me no choice but to select you
for the job. Don't forget to also list your experience and link to your best writing examples available on the web.
Remember: first impressions count a lot, and I'm probably going to receive several dozen emails, so yours will need to stand out or die. Take your time, pore over every word, re-read the email before sending, and then do it again (that's what you'll be doing with your posts). Do it right.
Hopefully, you can be the next +Cameron Summerson
, +Eric Ravenscraft
, or +Ron Amadeo
(our distinguished AP alumni). Or you can just be the next you. That works too.Please note that due to the volume of applications, I may not be able to respond to you in a timely manner (or at all).
