A/V Writer

Digital Trends Freelance  Portland, Oregon, United States 12 Sep 2022

Job Description

The right candidate will be able to present and execute breaking news, features, opinion pieces, how-tos, and reviews for the Audio/Video section, under the guidance of a section editor.

From 75-inch TVs that devour your entire wall, to Dolby Atmos soundbars that rival yesterday’s $4,000 hi-fi systems, the way we watch and listen to our favorite movies and shows is changing. But our passion for the clearest picture and sharpest sound has never waned. Digital Trends seeks a passionate A/V aficionado to help ordinary consumers navigate the maze of acronyms, formats, and features that is the modern home theater landscape.

And we mean that in the broadest possible sense. Today’s home theater encompasses headphones, portable speakers, and streaming sticks as much as projectors, receivers, and televisions. We cover it all, and we’re looking for talented writers to stake out their turf in every niche.

What You’ll Do

The right candidate will be able to pitch and execute breaking news, features, op-eds, how-to guides and reviews for our Audio / Video section, under the guidance of a section editor. Experience covering key players like Sony, Samsung, and LG is a plus, as is familiarity with WordPress, or publishing CMS. The ability to turn around airtight copy quickly and reliably can turn this into a long-term, reliable source of work for a passionate writer with a strong work ethic, voice, and understanding of our industry.

As part of your job, you will also find and secure relevant images, video, and other media to draw readers into your posts and retain them. Your sources will include media from manufacturers, official press releases, stock photography, and more.

You Have

  • Ability to handle multiple tasks effectively and meet deadlines.
  • Excellent organizational and administrative skills and attention to detail.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Able to communicate and provide feedback effectively to others.

Here’s How to Apply

Submit a cover letter with the following info:

  • Your background, your areas of interest and experience in tech, and your availability.
  • Resume with relevant tech writing or journalism experience.
  • Writing samples: Send three published clips of your writing.
  • Other relevant links: Add a link to your LinkedIn profile or online portfolio.
