TechHive, the only consumer-tech website 100 percent dedicated to smart home and home entertainment products, is looking for a freelance news writer. The ideal candidate will have expert knowledge of the smart home and home entertainment spaces, as well as excellent writing chops.
We’re looking for someone to write two short news articles a day (250 to 350 words each), five days a week, pitching and completing assignments in the morning during U.S. east coast hours.
The job requires communicating with a TechHive editor over Slack messages every weekday morning. You’ll scan the latest smart home and home entertainment news headlines, pitch articles to our editor over Slack, get assignment approvals, and then write your news posts on a custom version of WordPress. We have other writers working in a similar fashion and find they can pitch and complete two 300-word articles in about 60 to 90 minutes. Knowing our product categories and new writing speed will be the keys to your success.
For an idea of length, scope, subject matter and writing style, please read, “Google’s Assistant-enabled smart lamp isn’t for you,” “Philips Hue unleashes a dozen new lighting schemes” and “HBO Max adds a shuffle button for TV episodes.”
You should have a strong working knowledge of TechHive product categories. On the smart home side, we cover gear like home security cameras, video doorbells, smart speakers, robot vacuums and other cutting-edge tech products designed to automate and enhance the home experience. On the home entertainment side, we cover streaming services, streaming hardware, TVs, soundbars, Bluetooth speakers, and other products focused on audio and video.
