We’re Hiring: International/Overnight News Editor (Full-Time)


We’ve been covering Android News here at Phandroid since 2007, but we’ve almost always covered it while working within the confines of typical American work hours. Even the most enthusiastic of Android fans need their rest – including our awesome staff – but let’s face it… Android News never sleeps.

That’s why we’re looking for a Full-Time News Editor to add to our accomplished team of Android experts.

Position Details:

  • Title: News Editor – International/Overnight
  • Hours: Monday to Friday, 10PM to 6AM EST
  • Location: most suitable for an international applicant (ex: India) due to the time requirements, but as long as you’re reliably available according to the above hours, you can work from anywhere in the world
  • Experience: previous tech blogging experience required, preferably with an editorial role
  • Age: must be 18+
  • Salary: negotiable (based on experience)

Requirements & Expectations:

  • Applicants should have a deep passion for consumer technology.
  • Android expert: we’re looking for someone who loves everything about Android, has followed the platform’s progress over the years, and has an appetite for learning.
  • Excellent written skills, grammar, punctuation, and formatting abilities are a requirement.
  • Knowledge and familiarity with social media, content strategy, and SEO.
  • Ability to identify and prioritize newsworthy content that qualifies for news coverage.
  • Ability to multi-task effectively and work under deadlines at lightning speed.
  • Ability to convey ideas through an informative and entertaining writing style that is easy and enjoyable to read.
  • Ability/comfort in creating video reviews of applications, devices, events, etc… preferred but not required.

Most of all, we’re seeking a self-starter and go-getter that is eager to go above and beyond to help their team

How to apply:

  • Send an E-Mail to jobs[at]phandroid[dot]com
  • Type “News Editor” in the subject line
  • Tell us your name, age, location and a little bit about yourself
  • Tell us your work history and why you are perfect for the job
  • Copy/Paste/Link us (no attachments) to 1-3 related writing samples in the Phandroid style
  • Convince us that you’re the “go-getter” we’re seeking!
  • Please TAKE YOUR TIME in submitting your application – we’re looking for quality of applicants, not how quickly you can show your interest/urgency

We’re anticipating a large quantity of feedback and simply cannot respond to every applicant we get. We want to thank everyone in advance for their interest and we’ll follow up with potential candidates in the near future.
