We would love to welcome you to our community of cinephiles, gamers, and geeks!

Responsibilities

  • Write a minimum of 5 articles per week in Screen Rant’s house style (following the requisite training and peer mentorship period). This will include fact-checking, formatting, linking, and image sourcing/very basic editing (sizing, brightness, etc.)
  • Brainstorm, pitch, and develop original content ideas
  • Accept and apply any/all feedback received by the editorial team
  • Communicate openly and actively with the editorial team

Requirements

  • A passion for the content and a drive to grow within the industry

  • Excellent command of the English language
  • Ability to write high-quality articles with swift turn-around times
  • Comfortable working in an entirely virtual environment

Applicants with experience in the following areas will be given favorable consideration:

  • Understanding of the difference between “Features,” “Lists,” and “News” articles
  • Familiarity with platforms such as Asana, WordPress, and Discord
  • Image editing experience
  • SEO and Google Analytics knowledge

What Screen Rant has to offer:

  • Fully remote — write from wherever you’d like!
  • Incredible opportunities for career growth within a supportive system
  • An amazing community of like-minded people to nerd out with on a daily basis

NOTE: Only applications containing a resume and cover letter will be considered. It is essential that you demonstrate your knowledge of and passion for Star Wars in your cover letter to continue the application process.

Please note that the next step involves a written evaluation. Screen Rant has a zero-tolerance policy for using artificial intelligence (AI) to produce content for the site.

We look forward to hearing from you!
