Description:

Content Writer (Long-Term Freelancer)

The right candidate will receive writing projects on a consistent basis with competitive pay.

Requirements:

-Minimum 2+ years experience working in a fast-paced newsroom environment (highly desired, but not necessary)

-Extremely sharp writing skills and the ability to write in various "voices" (especially conversational voice/tone)

-3-5 writing samples (bonus points if you have a portfolio of works)

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 for the internet, 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 various topics in the "senior care" space, but specifically researching and writing about Medical Alert Systems. Experience in this industry is not required, but it's a BIG bonus if you have it! Think product reviews, as well as deeper, long-form explorations of topics. This is not a journalism job, but it requires the writing chops and the varied 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 strong cover letter and resume, with 3 writing samples.

Send your materials to rgabriele@centerfield.com. *Make sure to include “Experienced Writer” in the subject line.*

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