Job Description


The world of technology has never been more exciting and Tom’s Guide helps more than 30 million people around the globe find and use the tech they love every month. Our world-class experts live and breathe the latest technology, and like a trusted friend or advisor, we won’t talk down to you or baffle you with jargon, instead offering clear, unbiased advice, plus tips and tricks culled from our rigorous in-depth testing.

What you’ll be doing…

We’re looking for a talented writer with a passion for quickly tackling the latest news stories in the world of tech, whether that’s a new smartphone rumor, the launch of a new streaming service or show, or the latest announcements from a company about their home appliances.

You’ll also work hand in hand with the News Editor to spot emerging trends to get ahead of the news, so that when readers go searching for the latest updates, we’re there to meet them.

Ideally, you’ll have a good knowledge of the technology sector and experience at writing quickly and cleanly. At a minimum, you’ll have an eagerness to quickly learn and develop into an expert news writer. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic editorial team comprising some of the brightest and best from across the Future business. It’s a hands-on role, on a fast growing brand and has plenty of opportunity for development and progression.

  • Work with the News Editor to set priorities and strategy
  • Write high quality news stories on key products and services
  • Spot trends and anticipate coverage around key terms
  • Establish strong industry contacts with leading companies to ensure we receive the latest news first

Experience that will put you ahead of the curve…

  • A keen interest and understanding of consumer tech products. We don’t expect you to be an expert initially, but you’ll grasp the challenge of becoming one very quickly.
  • Exceptional writing and skills – from the ability to write snappy headlines to tight grammar control, through to the ability to choose just the right image to attract readers.
  • Ability to deliver stories quickly and efficiently.
  • An interest in and understanding of analytical and SEO tools.
  • Knowledge of and proficiency with social media platforms
  • Self-motivation. The team is split across several offices and continents, so you’ll need to be able to work independently and be willing to attend meetings at other offices as required
  • A tireless approach to success – you’ll be able to combine coming up with transformative ideas with a determined approach to ensure they are delivered

What’s in it for you…

We have a number of awesome perks available to our staff.  We offer huge opportunities to learn and develop, whether through professional qualifications, exposure to incredible business projects or informal lunch & learns, hosted by your colleagues. We have a fantastic culture where we really do care about our people and want everyone to succeed. Varied roles mean you’re not pigeonholed into one finite area but get the opportunity to develop a wide range of skills and experience.

Additional benefits include health Insurance; ranging from medical to dental and even vision care,

401k match and monthly munchies, bagel Fridays, fresh fruit & snacks and coffee and tea on tap. 

And to top it all off, not only do we offer unlimited holiday because we trust you to manage your workload and time but we also offer a share in our success whereby every colleague is eligible to join our profit pool bonus scheme – if Future hits their performance targets all colleagues may receive a bonus.

Internal job family level E7
