Who We Are:

We are Centerfield Media, a leading tech company looking for a passionate journalist/researcher/writer to join our growing roster of exceptional freelancers. We’re creating some of the most engaging content online, and for the right person, this is a chance to come on board during a time of rapid growth and opportunity.

About the Role:

This role involves researching and writing about internet service and technology. Think long-form reviews and how-to guides. This is not a journalism job, but it requires the writing chops and the skillset of a journalist to really shine. 

If hired, you’ll be working closely with a dedicated, close-knit team of kind, hardworking individuals who are all working to create one of the best consumer guides available online. Our management style is very “trust and support,” meaning that you should thrive in an environment where the entire team is working to make sure you’re productive, but no one is going to tell you exactly what to do or how to do it. 

First Steps:

To start, we want to see a short cover letter, resume, and three writing samples. 

Send your materials to rgabriele@centerfield.com and be sure to cc cazeh@centerfield.com. *Must include "Experienced Writer" in the subject line*

If you think you have what it takes, we look forward to hearing from you!
