We’re Hiring: Weekend News Editors!


Android News never sleeps, but even Phandroid editors and bloggers need a break. That’s why since 2007, coverage on week nights and weekends has been slower than weekdays. You’ve probably seen that we’re hiring an International/Overnight News Editor and we’re determined to offer 24/7 coverage, which is why we’re announcing another open position: Weekend News Editor.

Weekend News Editor – Position Details:

  • Title: News Editor – Weekend
  • Schedule: Saturday/Sunday, specific hours TBD
  • Location: 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 writing abilities, superb grammar, proper use of punctuation, and attention to detail are requirements.
  • 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.

  • Describe your typical weekend schedule and explain how much time (and what hours) you’re willing to dedicate to this part-time 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.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to be posted soon!
